|Roadside confusion — stroking out on Interstate 10.|
"I thought I was just being clumsy. I tried to close the door and it hit my foot, I missed the light switch three times. I went to the sink and turned on the water. When I looked up at the mirror I saw my face and tried to say "Oh, God," but I couldn't talk.
"Then I was scared but really confused. I turned to leave the bathroom and walked right into the door. I tried to holler for help but that must have been when I passed out.
"Some other tourist found me on the floor and called an ambulance. Someone had stolen my purse and money, too, I guess. It took a few weeks to put the memories back together. I still don't know exactly what happened, except that I had a stroke outta the clear blue."
