Denise: I'm in the 2 percent you speak of, thanks to a fast-thinking husband, efficient ambulance driver, and the terrific crew at SB Cottage Hospital. My 6/09 stroke, like yours, was caused by a PFO and the clot pretty much completely blocked the right side of my artist/musician/poet brain, so without unbelievable luck, and the expertise of Drs. Delio, Zauner and Gomez (and Aragon, for PFO detection and repair), my life would have been changed in a radical and truly terrible way. Thanks to them, I was able to walk out of the hospital 2 weeks later with no significant impairment to any aspect of my life, except for some trouble with numbers, which were never my strong point. Hooray for Cottage!
