Steve's Stroke Story

by Steve Taucci
(Ephrata PA USA)

I first noticed my legs got real weak, then while I was at work I dropped two plastic containers then I dropped my chef's knife, so I just thought I was tired. I went home and dropped a can of soup twice then tried to write a check for the rent and had a hard time with that too, so I went to bed. The next morning when I went to get up my right arm and leg did not function. I am right handed to so that made matters worse. I had trouble dialing 911. I am 60 yrs old this happened on May 10, 2017, and I am still having trouble walking.
