Early Morning wake up


Early Morning Wake Up

At 45 woke 1 morning and fell out of bed when trying to stand due to weakness in my left leg. My Husband asked me to smile while helping me back in bed. He then told me his concerns that I was having a stroke and called 911.

When the paramedics arrived they confirmed my stroke, and took me to the local hospital where I was air lifted to the stroke unit at University of Utah. I returned home 3 weeks later to continue my rehab. To continuing my recovery, I returned to work 2 months later, working part time.
