Rick was a successful business owner in Ontario when he was hit by a stroke in March 2015. He had no warning sign.
He was very healthy except some back problems. When the stroke happened, he did not have bad headaches but a very severe back pain.
Rick was rushed to the hospital and no one could recognize he had a stroke, although he could not balance himself and had to sit in a wheelchair.
The doctors told him to see a heart specialist when another attacked made him unable to handle things with his right hand.
At that time, a doctor identified that Rick was having a stroke. He was sent to hospital again.
Rick spent 7 months in rehab. His wife has been very supportive since his stroke. But today’s medical care leaves a lot to be desired.
