I was about to take a flight to visit family, when I fell on the jetway. Thankfully, I didn’t board the plane and first responders were able to tend to me before I was taken to the hospital. I had had a ruptured brain aneurysm and subarachnoid hemorrhage. I was in the hospital for about five weeks. During the latter few weeks and the next nine months, I participated in physical and speech therapy. I needed to walk with a cane, had double vision, and abstract thinking was virtually non-existent. Now, a little over three years later, my vision and balance problems are more of a nuisance rather than an obstacle. My abstract thinking has returned and my double vision has healed. The emotional adjustment continues, but I feel much more confident.
