Michigan Health releases an article to talk about the situation of strokes. Maureen Jenkins, the wife of the husband in this scenario, knew what was happening last October on a drive home from the cider mill with her husband, Jack, behind the wheel and two grandkids in the backseat. Jack was having a stroke. The fact that she recognized the symptoms may have saved their lives. Cemal Sozener, M.D., co-director of the University of Michigan Health Comprehensive Stroke Center discusses that there are different types of strokes, a rare one being ischemic stroke, which, left untreated, has a mortality of nearly 90% and a very small chance for returning to independent living.
