I was given TPa within the first three hours of my CVA last June. Before
the draino was genin, I had a CAT scan to determine if my CVA was a 
bleeder or a blockage. I have regained my ability to walk, use the left 
side of my body and have a normal physical life. I do have brain damage 
in that the translation from short term to long term remains difficult. 
I credit the quick responce of the ER staff of Durham Regional with me 
coming out of this as well as I have.
