This semester, we will follow some aspects of the lives of Matt and Maria:
One month ago, Matt woke up early as usual, but by the time he got dressed, ate breakfast, and walked to his class, he was aware of an excruciating headache. Maria convinced him to stay home for the day. Over the next several hours, he experienced slurred speech, right-sided weakness, and difficulty walking. When he attempted to walk to the bathroom, he stumbled a few times and fell once. Maria called 911. Emergency personnel arrived within minutes of her call and transported Matt to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. Fortunately, he made it to a hospital before he became unresponsive or died.
Matt was hospitalized for three days. There he received anticoagulants and blood pressure medication with monitoring, a CT scan, supplemental oxygen, and cardiac monitoring.
For the next month, Matt was grateful to be at home. He stayed in bed while Maria brought him meals and helped him with his studies. Doctors told him that his “stroke” was caused by high blood pressure, something he was unaware that he had. They gave him blood pressure medication and told him to take it easy.
