When I woke up at 6:30 AM on October 22, 2013 I knew something was terribly wrong. I tried to get out of bed and found it difficult to walk. I called for my husband, who had just returned from the gym, he found me slumped on the bed and with the slurred voice I said, "I think I'm having a stroke." I convinced him to not call for an ambulance, - I didn't want the fanfare- instead, I asked him to drive me to the hospital. Not a smart move!
