I want to start this by thanking everyone so much for their good thoughts, wishes and prayers for us. I truly believe they helped. We came home last night. This stroke was not a TIA but a small stroke. Evidently there is a difference but Im not entirely clear on exactly what that is right now. They ran a ton of tests, the CT, MRI, doppler on both heart and carotid arteries. They took tons of blood work too. They said except for the fact that he had a small stroke he is in amazing health! They really cant figure out why this happened. The only minor problems they could find were while his cholesterol was good at 171 his bad cholesterol was 121 and his good was only 50, then they found that his B12 was very low. So they have put him on aspirin, a statin for cholesterol, and vitamin B12 daily. He is still having minor double vision when he first wakes up and he has a bit of trouble focusing but he can bring that into focus when he tries hard. He is also a bit dizzy and weak if he does much activity at all. They told him to take off 3 to 6 weeks of work but he is adamant that he is going back next week for light duty...we shall see. He is worried because of him being the only income in the family. That puts stress on him too. This could also be stress related. Gosh knows we have been under an extreme amount of stress lately. I am sticking to him like glue and I refuse to stress him anymore. Anything I used to whine about shall be history. I can whine to my therapist...he doesnt need it right now. I also completely refuse to allow the stress of the kids to kill him. Sorry...but at this point he means more to me. They are grown. I woke up this morning to everyone fussing about Cory's upcoming court dates especially on the forgery charge where he stole the check from Billy. Cory started yelling that he wasnt going back to jail and how Billy should and could drop the charges. Well that aint happening but I will tell you this, I would rather them drop those charges and have Cory just leave than to have this bail stuff hanging over us forever. At this point I think Cory needs to go. He is causing stress and I am not going to allow it anymore. I am not having husband die or have another more severe stroke because of him. I will deal with this stress but there is going to be no more of it in my house. There cant be. I blame myself so much that because I bailed Cory out that this happened.
