Stroke : A 5% chance of survival by Ricky Monahan Brown


The day after losing his job in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Ricky suffers a catastrophic haemorrhagic stroke. Fortunately, his girlfriend Beth is nearby. A few minutes later, the unconscious Ricky is wheeled into Brooklyn’s Methodist Hospital with a 5% chance of survival, and worse odds of any type of good outcome.

Beth begins an eight-week vigil, grabbing an occasional nap on a waiting room floor. Then Hurricane Sandy does to New York what the haemorrhage did to Ricky’s brain. Amid the rubble of a battered city, brain injury, and lost jobs, Beth and Ricky start planning for a future together.

After all, this is a love story.
