One of my ritual circle sisters had a stroke this week. The second of my friends in the past six months.
She got medical help immediately, TPA was administered and she is out of the hospital and expected to make a full recovery.
I feel both bewildered and relieved. And very, very grateful. She has asked all friends with an online presence to please remind people everywhere to seek medical help immediately if you suspect a stroke. Every minute counts in this case.
And I will now return to deep breaths and more gratitude.
