my dad died aged 67yrs from a stroke, my mum died aged 72 from a stroke and my elder sister died aged 66 as a result of a stroke. i had a sister die from cancer. myself i had a stroke nearly 4yrs ago at the age of 62 and my younger brother suffered a stroke 2yrs ago at the age of 61. he is alive and living in a care home, i am the lucky one, my wife of almost 45yrs is my full time carer. my stroke left me paralised down my left side, i spent 9mths in 4 differant hospitals recovering fortunally for me living in the uk all my hospital bills and medicans are free. i spent two 3day periods in the royal london hospital having surgery on both of my neck arteries to clear the blockages which they believe was the cause of my stroke i cannot straighten my arm or open my hand, i have no feeling or strenght in my leg because i no longer drive, i have traded in my transit van for what i call my prat mobile meaning my mobility scooter.overnight i went from an enerjetic builder/decorator to what i am today.my worry now is about my son and daughter and two grandsons if i have passed sickness on to them. i am not a religious man, i dont believe in heaven or hell, god or the devil nor the hearafter i was born and lived in dublin ireland for the first 16 yrs of my life and i had enough relegion pumped down my throath to last me a lifetime. i attended a r/c school for boy only, in a classroom of 52 pupils taught by so called christain brothers the same evil sons of ******* that abused and inflicted pain on the boys they were meant to teach. life can be so cruel. i think i have winged enough for now. regards dunwack.
