Challenging Updates

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Last night my husband was sent to Yale New Haven. He is currently stable. They did another onslaught of tests, which continue. He did eat some soup tonight, and last night did give me a kiss, and wanted another one. Definitely wanted one tonight too.

Today I slept all day since I didn't get home til 3 a.m.
I got out there about 5 pm.

Results of MRI - probably not a stroke - they suspect a viral brain infection and will do a spinal tap, reverse the blood thinner, and give him blood. Could be encephalitis and that could cause the seizure.

Today's update on my husband Ron: He was asleep and snoring when I arrived about 5 p.m., as opposed to him crying and writhing in pain yesterday. They woke him, and his first request, very coherently afterwards regarded using bathroom facilities. Results of MRI - probably not a stroke - they suspect a viral brain infection and will do a spinal tap , reverse the blood thinner, and give him blood. Could be encephalitis and that could cause the seizure. They will also be doing a body scan to rule out cancers. They are leaning towards some kind of viral brain infection. Scary. Tonight he is receiving the blood plasma, tomorrow will be having the spinal tap.

I am home to sleep, more adventures tomorrow, so I have to rest up.
Exercise - walking.
Eating - mostly.
