I don't frequent the off topic board, so missed this till now. That was a close call, but really glad the right steps were taken immediately. Glad you're still with us. Scary stuff!

"Your culinary life will never be the same!"

You are so correct. I'm learning this very quickly...

Wow quick thinking on your sons part-you are indeed a lucky man if you have no lasting effects from the incident (only 10% do so). Glad you are recovering well. Stroke can affect you at 30 as well as older-and you can be healthy and an exercise fiend and still have one. I live in the South which is the "Stroke belt" of US. The incidence of stroke is higher than rest of US independent of age, ethnicity, treating hypertension, etc-no one knows why it is higher but the cancer rate is higher in southern states too. Now you can reduce your risk of stroke by treating hypertension, high cholesterol, etc, however stats from the South tell us more than that is involved in the process to be discovered.

I think itís because Southern culture doesnít allow normal expressions of frustration and anger. Telling someone that theyíre being an idiot gets you into a fight in the South. Therefore, your choices are:

1. Get into a fight
2. Turn those angry feelings inward, which sometimes end up causing physical symptoms like a stroke.

The first stroke I had was exactly this kind of situation. My father was screaming in my face, but I chose not to respond back in an angry way. Bam! Small stroke, immediately.

Push Pull Stroke... so true in many ways.
Glad to know you survived yours. You can still play, no?
That in itself is a bit of a miracle in my mind.
I can hold the sticks, there's no connection severed, it's just not the same as before the stroke.
I find that my timing and fine muscle control is shot to hell.
So given time and hard work... I hope to be able to make music again and not just bang on things with a stick in each hand.

First of all kudos to your son.
I'm 63 and I worry about stuff like that all the time. Fortunately I make regular visits to the doctor and I am wondering if this is something a doctor would have found from a normal blood test?
Or is it Russian roulette?

I was 17 when I had my first stroke. I have had a few since then. I suspect Iíll have a big one sooner or later that will take me almost completely down. I havenít had many noticeable problems as a result of any of them, though.

So this article popped up in my feed today, "Beat a stroke by banging a drum."

Now that you've mastered the single stroke, time to work on your doubles.

Haha! That shouldn't be funny, but I probably have the darkest sense of humor known to mankind, so I find your comment absolutely hilarious.
