Nice to be anywhere really
On Monday morning I had a stroke (stop sniggering in the back)
This time it was horns and blue light into the hospital.
Rapid and first class treatment mean that permanent damage is very minor.
Had loads of tests and scans and it seems I suffer from a heart rhythm problem (Atrial Fibrillation) which caused a clot to form in my heart and then get fired up into my brain.
I also have a partial blockage in my carotid artery that feeds blood to my brain. This may require surgery in the not too distant future.
They let me out this afternoon, still a bit shaky, but so glad to be home.
I am taking so many pills at the moment that I rattle when I walk, but I am happy to put up with that.
- Recognition and getting early treatment for stroke is IMPORTANT
- I need to start taking my diabetes more seriously
- I need to go fishing more often
Anyway, nice to be back
