On my stats page I saw a search term that was used which was “basilar artery stroke.” I realized I have never explained what artery of mine was messed up. My stroke was caused by a blood clot(ischemic stroke) which got lodged in the basilar artery. Offshoots of the basilar artery feed blood to the cerebellum, where I had my stroke. This is called posterior, in the back of the brain. The front of the brain is called anterior. Then the basilar artery divides into something called the Circle of Willis. The blood supply to the brain is very complex. I could write for hours about the different parts of the brain and what they do.
