I suffered a stroke on March15 2015 at 2.00pm,. I was so fortunate my wife rushed me straight to Good Hope A&E Ambulance entrance. I was carried from my car and given initial test and Cannula inserted. Then transferred to Heartlands via Emergency Ambulance.
Greeted by Acute Stroke Team and treatment commenced upon arrival, scans done and transferred to specialist ward. Cared for by two nurses two patients.
Monitoring medication and recovery. Seen by Consultant later in afternoon and again next morning prior to MRI and Carotid Artery scans. Discharged later that afternoon (24hours after the event. Subsequently have worked daily at mental maths, crosswords, wordseaches, sudukho and physical sequences such as making a clockface by placing my feet at 12, 1, 2, 3, etc. Full recovery thanks to wife's determination and our hard work. Medication working superbly and GP reassurances to go and live a normal life. Now planing walking football, going for long walks, and writing a children's book..
