So - I don't seem to be able to get away from this whole topic....it's actually almost laughable (but not really....) - there's my own ordeal (not stroke, but surgery for unruptured), then three weeks ago my mom ends up in hosp and for 2 days docs say stroke, then a week later my daughter is in MRI (normal) for dizziness/migraine/abnormal EEG, then last night (this is the crazy part) my husband and I went to a concert (Sarah McLauchlin - amazing...), and we're in downtown LA, and guess what's going on RIGHT THERE - people w/ badges, signs pointing towards specific meetings/events....the INTERNATIONAL STROKE CONFERENCE. ????????????? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's just in my face, at every corner it seems! But, with humor, I realized while at the concert that I was right next to the biggest neurologists / neurosurgeons in the world! Crazy. This conference is already yielding headlines based on new research presentations - I googled the conference - it's all weekend. Maybe I should sneak in!
Sometimes life is crazy. I'm sure my own docs and many of yours are there as well. Nuts.
