BluebirdbluebellDisgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.· 0 replies
PennySycamoreI've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening. My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital. There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke. My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown. The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went. (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.).· 7 replies
I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke, I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected. I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100. They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon. The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out. My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick. When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting. She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
Anyway I'm home. My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
A couple of things I learned:
I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.
