Changes

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~~

I am SO sorry you and KK have to go thru this! I know it must be so hard, but please know you are in my thoughts and prayers!! If there is anything I can do...

I am grateful you got him there quickly, and that your Doctors seem to be on top of everything.

PLEASE keep us posted!

It's scary how quickly we can go from completely well to being in the hospital. Hope everything turns out ok and you have your hubby home soon.

It good karma you had a sudden urge to put so many projects on the needles. I hope each one gives you the calm in the storm we all need to get through these bumps in life. I am praying for both of you. Please let me know if I can help. Hugs and Kisses to Sophie who I imagine is working overtime to be extra funny.

Oh, wow, I'm so sorry this happened, but I'm SO glad you caught it quick. Did they give KK one of the clot-buster drugs like...oh, dear, I've forgotten the name, but it starts w/a T? Hang in there!
