A major stroke at 22 is pretty crazy.

My uncle had a similar stroke in his early fiftys. He was this wonderful old man who could only move his finger, so we attached a bell to his wheelchair arm. Unfortunately he was killed in a bomblast in his very own nursing home.

I can still remember sound of the dings he used to make.

My wife had 6 more more strokes by 42 and several major brain surgeries to restore profusion. She has MoyaMoya a uncommon disease that causes vessels in the brain to shrink and block blood flow. It can effect children from 6 months to several years old as well then seems to take a brake then hit people in their 40s to 50s.
