August 2018 I was admitted due to a left cerebral stroke causing limited use of my right hand.The MRI had shown several infects with no bleeds A-fib was suspected as the cause of the clots traveling but not confirmed So I was discharged after five days & scheduled to see Neurology where they also placed me on  Clopidofeel on top of the lo-dose aspirin.So as of now a loop recorder has been placed to monitor for A-fib and during my bypass surgery an atrial occlusion clip was placed to prevent more clots from traveling again.

Hello my strokes started December 14th 2018 first stroke was weakness and drunkenness affecting the right side of my whole body. The hospital ran a cat scan and then gave me a TPA shot to stop the progress of the stroke. After 4 days of tests they told me I had an accute ischemic stroke which killed a small part of my brain where the right and left sides meet and also an intanglement on the back side of the brain. They put me on plavix and low dose asprin and I went home. Stayed home till March and was almost ready to try to go back to work and had two more strokes back to back one affecting my left side of my body and another affecting my speech stayed in the hospital for about a week and they put me on three different blood thinners and told me to follow up with my primary care physician and I did and we set up appointments with rehabilitation center and a neurologist but before I get to the appointments I had two more strokes both affecting the right side of my body the worst of them leaving half my body as if it is asleep that numb stingy feeling that won't stop. Went to rehab for a week but since I haven't been able to work since December we have no insurance and are out of money now could not continue treatment. Denied both parts of Medicaid in Texas but did finally get a county offered indegent care program that is limited but a big help in seeing doctors and also filed for disability maybe that won't take long. Thanks
