I'm home from the hospital. wednesday morning at 3:30 i awoke ands realized my whole right side was numb, face,arm,leg i tried to take an aspirin and i was unable to swallow or talk or really do anything - i was able to say 911 and maria called an ambulance.
I was in the hospital a few days for all kinds of tests. cat scan/mri/eeg/ekgs/echo of my heart and a lovely test where a camera is put down my throat to look at my heart. my right leg is ok but a little stiff. my right arm has regained a lot of it but is weak- typing this takes time but my physical therapist says working a keyboard is good for it.my speech is a little sluggish and slow but it was only a mini-stroke. not a big Dick CLark type stroke.so i'm home and ok..just a little not well and i'll get better in time.
i always try to keep my sens of humor in whatever situation (well after the initial panic of it all) I was getting the MRI and they put headphones on me played music during the hour test.what song was in hte mix? James Blunt"you're have a bad day".
no shit i thought.
But i'll be well again soon. Don't worry.
