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.
