|I am not the Only Mad Person in our family|
Thank you ALL for comments and prayers and emails and cards.. You Lifted Me UP!
It has been a long, hard 2 weeks, the stroke on the 17th, the week of waiting for his blood thinner to clear . Bob's surgery was done on Friday, June 23rd. It was a long one, 4 hours on the table, I brought him home Saturday at 2 pm. His throat looks like Frankenstein, I will spare you the photo I took of it in the hospital. I took a photo of him in the bed and my life was threatened if I posted it..
I am not worried because he is to weak to kill me now. The blessed news is no symptoms from the stroke remain, he is weak, his jaw and throat hurt and he is hoarse. He is taking pain pills and his normal 3 prescriptions. He is still at slight risk for stroke or high blood pressure for the next 24 hours. I have instructions and will follow them. If his BP goes above 150 on the top I have to call the surgeon. It is not over yet but the worst of it is..
All the things I feared, like anesthesia causing confusion of his brain did not happen. he is Perfectly Lucid..
I know this because right after the put him in ICU, he looked an me and said how much weight have you loss? you look just like you did when we got married... (that was 33 years ago and many pounds less) That Proves his brain is FINE... (my weight loss is now at 34 pounds)
