Thank you Roadhappy.  I'll gladly accept all the encouragement I can get.

I'm doing well. I don't plan on smoking any more. This is probably the umpteenth time I've tried to stop. It's the best I've ever done. I came home yesterday. Should be back to work Monday. Dr. thought TIA at first because I had minimal issues, and recovered from that quickly. MRI showed full blown stroke.

Scary stuff!  Glad to hear you are headed back to work Monday.  Curious if you had been taking aspirin prior to the stroke.

I was taking aspirin when I had my first stroke. They put me on Plavix then, so that's what I had been taking. Now I'm on both.

I was on Plavix and aspirin when I developed 2 ulcers, collapsed and spent 3 days in the hospital after the ambulance pumped 4 units into me. I'm sure you have read where Plavix is linked to a higher risk of stroke even though it is given to stroke victims...... your milage may vary of course..Hope you continue to do well.

Cat- I hadn't read that. I'll check into it though. Thanks for the heads up.
