TIA - Mini stroke

Two weeks ago Ron had an episode while driving; he had a tingling on his left side and lost control of his left hand. After a visit to his doctor,  Ron was diagnosed with a TIA (mini stroke).  An ultrasound of his carotid artery (neck) was performed and the doctor found a (50-65%) blockage on his right side.  Ron was referred to a neurologist and a vascular surgeon; his first appointment is this Tuesday, March 11th.
