As many of you know , I suffered a stroke on March 1. It came with no warning and I had no risk factors, zero, like in the negative actually . I dropped Davis off at school and went to the gym per usual. A few hours later, I was being carried in the ER by my husband having lost mobility, vision and speech. Needless to say, it was a very scary few days. I‘m so fortunate to be making a full recovery and to have access to great physicians at Mass General. I knew what was happening and luckily, so did my husband. We wasted no time, which was critical. Not everyone is so lucky, not everyone has my outcome. I plan to run in August (albeit slowly, maybe slog) and to use my second chance at life to help educate, spread the word, and support other stroke victims and their families.
