I was going to be so much better about posting~~I really was ~~but things change~~in the bat of an eye life is different.
KK was out of work for a couple of weeks~doctor's orders. He just wasn't feeling well. If the truth be told he hasn't felt well all winter. He had an "episode" ( for lack of a better word) at work and they drove him home. Light headed,very dizzy, bad enough that he called the doctor right away the next morning. Doc. says no work, and take it easy until we get all these tests done.
Went to one specialist and she said if you have any sort of "episode" again go immediately to the hospital emergency room. That was last Friday~~Sat. morning he wakes up fine but then a few minutes later he wasn't so fine.
It's amazing what you can do when you have no choice. I had no idea how to get to the hospital~~had my DD on the cell phone as I'm speeding all the way! She met up with us in the city and I followed her. Thankfully she had the foresight to call and tell them we were on the way. As soon as we pulled in they met us with a wheel chair and whisked Kk inside while I signed him in.
I will never,ever forget that ride~~he was so sick~I was so scared. He was disoriented and some what confused. Once inside everything happened so fast~~but the day seemed endless waiting for some tests and results. Of course these things always happen on weekends or holidays and here we had both!
He had so many tests that I can't even remember the name of them all, we talked with so many doctors they all began to look alike!
He had a stroke~~he was very lucky~~it was caught quick, and with some life style changes he will be ok. He's been in the hospital 5 days so far but it seems like so much longer. In a day or so he will be moved to rehab to finish recuperating and then surgery..to have a stent inserted to improve blood flow.
It's very odd to be here alone. I don't like it~~it just feels wrong. We just had our 38th anniversary last week~~
