Former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi suffered a stroke on July 4, but his recovery is going well.
The ex-linebacker posted on societal networking reports early Monday morning on his second stroke and did a little educating on the subject whilst updating his position.
“About 10:30 a.m. on July 4th I lost use of my left arm,” Bruschi wrote. “I then attempted to talk and realized that I was slurring my speech. As I turned to my wife she noticed the side of my head was drooping. We immediately knew what was happening. All these are stroke warning signals. We called 911 and an ambulance got me to the hospital. Thank you. I am doing much better. “This is actually the next stroke for the 46-year-old Bruschi, who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots. An announcement released Friday morning said that Bruschi had a transient ischemic attack and instantly recognized the warning signals.
Bruschi, now an analyst for ESPN, suffered his first stroke in 2005, three days after the Super Bowl. At the moment, it had been revealed that he had a congenital heart defect that led to a hole in his heart. Bruschi then underwent a procedure. After sitting from the start of the 2005 season, he returned to play with nine games annually, winning the Comeback Player of the Year award. The linebacker played an additional three seasons before retiring prior to the 2009 season.
