In a post on her social media pages, Chely Wright has revealed that she suffered a stroke last year.
Chely explains that she had been dealing with a migraine for three days in the fall, but that isn't unusual for her. However, she had a couple of shows to do, so she and her wife went to the emergency room at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City to see if they could help.
The doctor she saw was concerned about some of her symptoms and ordered additional tests, which confirmed that she had a stroke.
Chely, who recently turned 49, is fine now. She shared her story to encourage others to get to know the symptoms of a stroke and to pay attention to their bodies.
