How do you know it's a stroke?
Wednesday, July 13, 2011
Wow I had a trying weekend. My husband ended up in the hospital - he had slurred speech, drooping on his right side, and other cognitive issues.
We called emergency - who were there right away - and he was taken to a small hospital near by. They transferred him to the bigger one after he was stabilized. We were there for 4 days and he had lots of tests. The final results said he had a TIA. It must have been a big one - because he sure had lots of care. Everyone was great at the hospital - the only issue now is: What caused it? Everything came out normal - or so they say. He is weak, stumbles when he walks, and has trouble writing. Guess I'm going to watch him very closely. What a scare!
