No Time to Waste!  If you or someone you are with shows signs of stroke, call 911 immediately instead of driving to the hospital or medical center.  People who arrive by ambulance are usually seen more quickly in emergency rooms and the clot-dissolving treatment that can reduce brain damage from many strokes must be given within 3 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Also, make sure that you and your family members know these warning signs of stroke:  

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body  

  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding  

  • Sudden trouble seeing with one or both eyes  

  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination 

  • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause

Live Gently and Be Blessed in 2019!
