As I get ready to celebrate the holidays with my family this year, I’m preparing to pay special attention to my father and grandmother. Both have had a stroke in the past. And while both are doing well, I learned earlier this year while working on a project that the biggest risk for a stroke is to have had one already. I also found that the incidence of stroke – and heart attacks – increases at the holiday season. I’m hopeful that I won’t be calling 911 but I’m much more aware of the signs and symptoms of stroke, particularly after participating this past August in a nationally syndicated public service announcement (PSA) supporting the American Stroke Association.
