Health Problem...

Almost four week ago (August 19th) I had some kind of Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA) as a result of Central Sleep Apnea  (CSA) - a condition in which I stop breathing while asleep.

CSA occurs because the brain doesn't send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.. CVA is the sudden death of brain cells due to a problem with the blood supply. When blood flow to the brain is impaired, oxygen and important nutrients cannot be delivered. The result is injury and then death to brain cells resulting in abnormal brain function.

Spent almost a week in Serdang Specialist Hospital. Already been discharged but have to go to the hospital regularly for physio- and neuro-therapy. On the road to recovery now. Will be right back.
