Tedy Bruschi says he is ‘doing much better’ following latest stroke

Former NFL linebacker and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi suffered his second stroke last week, but fortunately he appears to be recovering well.

On Monday morning, Bruschi took to Instagram to educate people about the warning signs of a stroke. The Patriots legend said he is “doing much better” and that he was able to get the help he needed because he immediately identified what was happening.

“Around 10:30am on July 4th I lost use of my left arm. I then tried to speak and realized I was slurring my speech. As I turned to my wife she noticed the left side of my face was drooping. We immediately knew what was happening,” Bruschi wrote. “These are stroke warning signs. We called 911 and an ambulance got me to the hospital. Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers. I’m doing much better.”

Bruschi has dedicated much of his life to raising awareness about strokes since he suffered his first in 2005. He wrote a book about the experience in 2007 and has since run in multiple Boston Marathons. He even played for the Patriots for several more seasons after his first stroke.

It’s great to hear that Bruschi is on the road to recovery, and it’s remarkable that he is already using another unfortunate situation to educate others.
