Hello @lsatenst1, welcome to Connect. This is a great place to connect with others and ask questions and learn. I have not had a stroke but would like to tag a few connect members to see if they are able to share their stories - @mkf1, @janicelm, @deliasanderson. I am also tagging @colleenyoung who may be able to add more.

In the mean time you may be able to find more helpful information on the Mayo Clinic page on ischemic strokes:

@lsatenst1, sorry the link I gave you was for strokes in general. Here is the one an ischemic stroke:
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/stroke/diagnosis-treatment/treatment/txc-20117296

I also found some good information on the Merck Manual Consumer Version site here:

The National Institute of Health's site has some good illustrations (that help folks like me trying to learn what it is):
