I may taken my last ride on a skateboard. Sunday night I went to the emergency room because I had a TIA episode. Spent two days in hospital, tons of tests. Currently I am pretty numb on the right side of my body. Should subside but on a bunch of stuff for the rest of my life including blood thinners. Had a good run.

Sorry to see this Gary.  Do you have AFib?  I think Rockin' Ron came back from a stroke to skate again(?) so maybe it's possible for you?  But, I suppose skating is not a good idea when you're on blood thinners?

Prayers for the best possible outcome for you Gary.

Age gets us all in one way, shape or another Gary.  Your "run" is not over, it will just be different! 
I have had a few things come up that have me on lifetime meds too.  It has curbed my mountain biking and such from time to time, but many other things are positive.
Get healthy and make the adjustments in your life that will keep you smiling!
I will be rooting for you!!

Sorry to hear, but never say never.  I hope you are able to roll again soon.  Even if it is just longboarding.

Sorry to hear this Gary.  Positive thoughts your way.  And what 300 said, "Get healthy and make the adjustments in your life that will keep you smiling!" is exactly right!  Adjustments happen to all of us at one time or another; find things that bring you enjoyment.

Hang in there Gary. Medical science is pretty good these days, hope they sort you out and you are fit and well real soon. Don’t hang up the boards just yet.

Never say never. After breaking a femur a few years ago I've reduced my riding to a longboard and my trusty Dubzillas. Always feels good to just roll.

Thanks everyone. Slowly getting the feeling back on the right side of my body. Can actually type now. Will be interested to see how much this has affected my sense of balance.
