On March 20, 2019, Al Grywalski, 73 and in good health, woke feeling a little out of sorts, but chalked it up to not having eaten yet. A big breakfast didn’t help, and though he noticed slight weakness in his right foot, he dismissed the issue thinking it was no big deal. At 1:30, he headed to his fitness center for his normal workout. But after experiencing a surprising weakness in his right arm, he cut the workout short. Then, walking to his car, he noticed balance problems. Al sought immediate help. At the TriPoint Emergency Room, he announced that he thought he was having a stroke and the staff flew into action.
