On March 22, 2019 I joined a coach trip from Vancouver, Canada to California. I had a headache on the left side of my head. When we arrived in Palm Springs the headache was worse. We proceeded to San Francisco and I did not leave the hotel room. It was now time to go back to Canada but I passed out and was taken to the hospital. Surgery was at 4.30 am on April 1st by a neurosurgeon who drained the brain aneurysm and my brain is working just fine. I am 81 years old.

On August 19th, 2016 I had a ruptured brain aneurysm that left me with no memory at all. I was hospitalized for 30 days, had a stroke on the 6th day, and went back to ICU for 5 days. Now I am back to work and have made a full recovery. I also have another brain aneurysm that is about 1.5 mm. I am getting MRI once a year.

I have migraines frequently and on May 3rd, 2012 I had what I thought was a migraine and a pain like an atom bomb. So I did what I normally did; I closed myself up in my darkened bedroom for three days with the symptoms of a migraine, vomiting, avoiding any light or smells. Then I got out bed on the third day to go urinate and had a seizure while on the toilet. My husband heard me moaning from pain, came and helped me get to the car and drove me straight to the emergency room. They didn’t have a neurologist on staff so then they transported me an hour and half away to another hospital. They coiled a subarachnoid hemorrhage behind my right eye. My stay was for fifteen days and I'm very lucky to be here, so six doctors told me. Then on February 6th, 2014 I had a craniotomy. They clipped that one and my hospital stay was one day. I still have headaches to this day, some worse than others but I'm grateful that there was a great neurological team that saved me twice and that I had very little problems after the aneurysms. My thanks to the neurological team.

My brain aneurysm symptom started with not being able to lower my head to my chest, I could go left right, back but not down. Then the massive head ache and I had it for 3 days. I never took any pills as I am a firm believer in the power of the mind. Good thing as it was one of the things to save my life.
