I suffered a stroke in March 2014 while driving back to my former home in Phenix City, Alabama. It was a very frightening and life-changing experience. And since then I still have complications from it. Then last year in July I had to address the other half of my problem, the half that basically created the first half. I had to have a defibrillation implanted to closely monitor my heart rhythm. Thus far things have been stable. The most recent shock I had from the device was in July of this year.
