What We Know of Bob Neumeier’s Stroke
After suffering from a stroke, one that required 5½ hours of surgery, he appeared nervous on-air in October. He explained later: “I was really nervous. I didn’t think there would be (butterflies), but there were.”
He expressed: “There’s a lot of people involved here, colleagues and cohorts. They have an eye out to see how I’m doing. Viewers have an eye out. People are saying, ‘What is he doing? What does he sound like? What does he look like?”
Mr. Neumeier added: “I didn’t want it to be a freak show, not that it would have been. I just wanted it to be seamless. Maybe they missed me, maybe they didn’t, but I wanted [viewers to think] my work would be the same. Maybe even better. That was how I thought about it.”
Later on, he explained that he just wanted to show up and do his job again, which hopefully appeared to be delightful for everyone. That’s how he wanted to do it, reminding that experience helps as he has done it for a long time.
It’s said that he had visited some neurologists during his recovery, chatted at length with Dr. Aman B. Patel, who performed the surgery; although, he had no will to learn the details of what happened to him.
Instead of what had happened to him, he expressed himself by saying that he had a surgeon operating on his brain that lasted for six hours: “One false move and I’m gone. What else is there to know?”
He said that he’s not interested at all to see the brain scan: “It’s right there on the computer, but I don’t want to see what happened. I don’t want to see what caused it. I don’t want any part of it.”
The sports anchor explained that was why getting back was so emotional for him besides making him nervous. He said that experience led him to appreciate things you might have taken for granted.
