I was due to fly out to the United States the next morning. I was bending down to clean the floor of my car when it happened. First my right hand wouldn’t respond and I fumbled picking up a spoon from the floor, then my right leg wouldn’t support my weight. I tried to call out to my wife but only grunts came out, except of course the f-word when I knew what had happened.
