I had a minor stroke on September 28, 2017, at 10:00 PM. The stroke affected my right hand and right eye only and lasted for about 45 minutes. I was in the hospital for two days as the Neurologist and Cardiologist ran tests to determine the extent of the problem. The brain injury from the stroke was minor and I have fully recovered from that. The heart is another issue. The stroke was caused by a birth defect in my septum where a pin hole leak allowed a small blood clot to bypass the lungs and and go straight to my brain. A heart cath showed the enlargement in my ascending aorta, the leaking bipolar aortic valve, the septum pinhole leak, and a 70% blockage of one artery of the heart. Waiting for open heart surgery now.
