Chely Wright Reveals She Suffered a Stroke

SOME PERSONAL NEWS I’M SHARING FOR THE FIRST TIME:

Exactly one year ago today, I went to the ER at Lenox Hill Hospital because I was on Day 3 of a migraine, which isn’t uncommon for me.
Because I had shows booked for the coming weekend, I wanted to get this headache out of the way. Lauren and I dropped the boys at school and headed to the ER.

The doctor I saw— whom I’d seen before— was troubled by some the symptoms of that day’s headache.

After a series of diagnostic tests, I was informed that I’d had a stroke.

A stroke. I’d just turned 48.

I sort of knew it. What I had been experiencing with that headache and leading up to that headache was different. I’d even said aloud to myself in the bathroom mirror, “Did you have a stroke?”

It’s been a long year, but I am okay.

The reason I’m sharing this is so you all might take a moment to refresh your understanding of stroke and the symptoms of stroke.
Pay attention to your body and encourage your loved ones to do the same.

Again, I am okay and very grateful to have access to quality medical care. As we all know, not everyone in America has that luxury. We have to fix that.
