I have been called 'a stroke!' Many friends and cousins have remarked upon my words amd deeds and assigned this canard to me and without reservation I freely admit that -yes, I was, and can be 'a stroke.'
However, I have not to my knowledge, much less lack there of, caused or intended to cause a stroke, paralysis ( temporary, or permanent).
Also, I can attest to the fact that I have not ventured from the continental United States in the last twelve years, except when acting as an agent in the service of my country at the request of my President(s) . . . but I can not speak to that.
Hickey Causes Woman to Become Partially Paralyzed.
A 44-year-old woman from New Zealand was treated in Middlemore Hospital for partial paralysis in her left arm. Doctors discovered the “love bite” on her neck was directly over an artery in her neck.
The hickey caused a small clot to form, which traveled to her heart causing a small stroke and the resulting paralysis. The clot was treated with an anticoagulant and was dissolved in a week.
The attending physician said “We looked at the medical literature and that example of having a love bite causing something like that hasn´t been described before.”
I stand accused.
