“OMG – 2 Mini-Strokes!!”
©2014 James Dacey, Jr. OFS
Holy cow this took a long time to type!!! What can I say? Other than -Thank you Jesus for sparing my life and allowing me to move forward into a healing. I don’t know what to say, except, I highly recommend that when your body is telling that something is wrong, it’s usually right. With me, as many of you would probably say the same thing, “I know my body, its rhythm, its daily fluctuations… I can tell when something is out of sync.”
It's obvious to me now why I was having such a problem with understanding words and sentences.. Then on Saturday when I wrote this Chrissy asked me,"Would you like me to cut some celery for you?" You'd think I was a foreigner that had no idea what she was talking about if you saw my face... I was like, "What????" She looked at me like I had 3 heads, "Do you want me to?" I said, "Cellery????" She was like, "Yeah, Celery!! would you like me to cut some up for you?" Then all of sudden I remembered what "Celery" was.. WOW !!!
Hospital Visit (3 days)
The doctor said, “Deep inside your brain, as part of your DNA genetic make-up we have found a spot that shows you have had a stroke.” Side note: My mom’s mom was epileptic and through her life she experienced mini-strokes. The doctor further told me that through these tests we can see you had two Episodes of (TIA) –meaning Mini-Stroke. These findings tell them that I had two episodes, one was more serious than the other. Exactly what day was what it don’t tell them? In some ways the Tuesday was dramatic because I fell unconscious and lost mechanic motion with my left arm/hand. But then Thursday lasted a good part of the day and I also lost grabbing ability with the same hand. No matter I am home waiting to see my Personal Physician to get her take on the entire situation. Hopefully I can get back to work real soon...
I will keep everyone posted... Thank you all for your love and your continued prayers...
