Well life happened again....
Last Friday I was awakened by a loud crashing sound and saw my hubby flop onto our bed. I asked if he was okay and he said no...he was extremely dizzy and said his left arm and side felt numb.
They needed to give him a shot of a powerful drug that breaks up blood clots. It only works if given within 4 1/2 hours of onset of the stroke symptoms. We barely made it under the wire but thank the good Lord we did.
He had to stay in ICU for at least 24 hours as the drug can cause bleeding in the brain or other parts of the body.
They moved him on Sunday to a different room where he didn't have to be monitored as closely.
Lots of trips were made back and forth to the hospital for the next few days...sleep was lost by both the patient and the wife!
He was able to come home on Tuesday evening. HOORAY!
Doing well. - Still has some double vision but it's improving. For awhile he saw 2 of me!
He has to use a walker right now but hopefully in time and after
PT he will be walking on his own. Right now he wants to
Sleep a lot. - So that's a bit of what's been happening here.
