This book is a first- hand account of the experience of surviving a stroke and adapting to life with new limitations. It is the story from the architect-author's perspective from home to emergency room to hospital bed to transitional care and finally back home again. It is a story of hope and bewilderment from a survivor who had no reason to believe he was at risk but who found himself without the use of his dominant left side, without a job, but with a desire to help others understand the traumatic implications of this medical event and the opportunities it presents to understand our fragile nature and giving spirit.
