Home again

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Yesterday afternoon when I went to visit my honey after work, I was told he was being discharged. Oops, I did not have any clothes for him except socks and underwear, and he had his shoe and airboot for his fused ankle.

A sweet nursing student got him a pair of scrub pants, and I went down to the gift shop and bought him a Yale sweatshirt. Now he can officially say he had a week long medical residency at Yale Medical.

Praise God. Glad he is home.
Some kind of Herpes Encephalitis - related to shingles and chicken pox that got to his brain.

If you see your loved one acting a little funny, forgetful, slurring, do something and take them to the emergency room. If I did not respond and take him, I may not be able to say he is home recovering, talking to me, making plans for future adventures, and loving me. Encephalitis is not common, strokes are. Learn the signs of stroke and heart attack, and be attentive to your loved one acting out of the normal. It can save a life.

Color me grateful.
God bless you, and my friends who have prayed for me and Ron's recovery.
Color me blessed. Very blessed.

    Wow! Who knew that nasty virus could get into the brain as well :((
    So glad it was caught in time and that he is finally home, and hopefully with an end to all health crisis once and for all!
    May he finally recover and get your lives back to normal!!

    Prayers answered. However, they continue for Ron's continued healing and for you-caregivers need them too. So thankful that this was caught in time. You were truly blessed.
