Jose initially thought that it was his vision but it wasn’t. His mini-stroke took place at the studio.

A day and a half later, Jose’s alarm went off, and he wasn’t able to get up from his bed to turn it off. One of his daughters who was visiting came in and looked in the room since the alarm clock was going off. She asked him what was happening and that’s when Jose told him to call his doctor (his eye doctor). He was rushed to the hospital that instant and was saved from what was about to happen. Jose urges people to go for checkups whenever they feel something they haven’t felt before in their life. Currently, he is doing fine healthwise.
