Ex-Patriots LB Bruschi ‘doing much better’ after stroke

Posted on: November 26th, 2019 by admin

Former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi suffered a stroke on July 4, but his recovery is going well.
The ex-linebacker posted on social media accounts early Monday morning about his second stroke and did a bit educating on the subject while upgrading his position.
“Around 10:30 a.m. on July 4th I lost use of my left arm,” Bruschi wrote. “I then attempted to talk and realized that I was slurring my speech. As I turned into my wife she detected that the left side of my face was drooping. We immediately understood what was occurring. These are stroke warning signs. We called 911 and an ambulance got me to the hospital. Thank you. I am doing much better. “This is the second stroke to your 46-year-old Bruschi, who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots. A statement released Friday morning said that Bruschi had a transient ischemic attack and instantly recognized the warning signs.
Bruschi, currently an analyst for ESPN, suffered his first stroke in 2005, three days after the Super Bowl. At the time, it was revealed that he had a congenital heart defect that led to a hole in his heart. Bruschi then underwent a procedure. After sitting from the start of the 2005 year, he returned to play nine matches annually, winning at the Comeback Player of the Year award. The linebacker played an additional few seasons before retiring prior to the 2009 season.
