New England- After a scary and unfortunate stroke for ESPN’s analyst and former Patriots player Tedy Bruschi on Friday. Bruschi stated that he was okay and felt better on Monday. On his social media, he explained that he lost feeling in his arms and started slurring his speech during the incident and was educating his social media followers about the signs of a person having a stroke.
“As I turned to my wife she noticed the left side of my face was drooping. We immediately knew what was happening,” said Bruschi. “These are stroke warning signs. We called 911 and an ambulance got me to the hospital. Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers. I’m doing much better.”
This was the second time that Bruschi experienced a stroke. In 2005, he suffered a stroke a couple of days after the Patriots beat the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl and found out that he had a congenital heart defect, which means he had a hole in his heart. The doctors repaired it and the following season, Bruschi played nine games and was named as the comeback player of the year.
