The Stroke - That Changed my Life

 On February 19, 2011, I suffered a stroke. It was a severe one. I was in a coma for 4 weeks. When I woke up, I could only say 20 words and my right side was paralyzed. I was in hospital for 5 months, wheelchair bound. The doctors told my wife that I would be a vegetable for the rest of my life. Although I heard this, I was unable to respond. I told myself, "no way, I will walk again". The book describes my struggles to regain my mobility and my speech. 


I never give up.

Throughout my life, I have faced hardship and challenge. I learned to survive. I was a high school dropout in Hungary due to the revolution in 1956 and had to leave my home and family; yet I managed to get two university degrees, raise a family and have a successful career. 



The power of positive thinking.

I learned this from my grandfather. "Be positive. Travel the world", he told me when I was just a boy.
