    My Wife's Stroke

    I haven't been catching everything on here as we have been traveling and then got home and was trying to get the RV's ready for winter. Last Tuesday I thought my wife was mad or in some depression. Then on Wednesday she fell twice in the house but was still claiming to feel fine. I got her to take the smile test which she passed but called and got her an appointment for the DR. But he called back and said to get her to ER. Long story short she was having a progressive stroke. So ladies and gentlemen if you see any uncharacteristic behavior in a loved one call the infamous 911. Don't try and talk them into it as they will most likely be in denial.

    She was sent home yesterday in the middle of the storm but we got to the pharmacy to get her medication with nine minutes to spare, as the hospital pharmacy closed at 3:00 even though they assured is all day they would be open till 7:00. Thank God my daughter flew up from Florida for a week maybe two now.

    Maxine seems to be improving some and we hope it continues but all the good thoughts and yes prayers if so inclined would be appreciated. It has me in a spin not knowing how the future will unfold and she is only 63..

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
