Well now. My life has been realigned once more. On Thursday, I had a Trans Ischemic Attack. A mini stroke. Year number 70 is proving to be a challenge. I’m fine. They found nothing after.
I was up at 0625 trying to get into a zoom AA meeting. It was so odd. I couldn’t get the numbers from the notebook to the computer properly. After 30 minutes, I arrived slurring my words. A veterinarian in my group who I respect immensely, told me very directly to wake my wife and get to the hospital. I did. My wife was amazing, such a great partner I have. Like a Pit Bull at these times.
I was having trouble walking. Seeing double. Slurring my words. It was a bit better by the time we arrived at the St Luke’s Anderson Center. I received very good care from a whole group of doctors.
After many tests, the found nothing and went with the only working diagnosis. TIA.
I’m taking Eliquis. A blood thinner to handle a clot if that was the culprit and a baby aspirin witch helps with any plaque problem. I feel fine. Just different. I have changed a lot along the way.
I’m a very sensitive person. It is delayed usually, but I feel deeply and care deeply and am a crazy loyal person. People came directly to my mind as I got clear headed again. Friends and family. I love you all.
Funny, this blog started as a diary for my daughters to have after I’m gone. I thought they should know their dad. I wish my dad had done something like this. Then it turned into a hiking journal. Now it’s therapy, at times like this. A place to get my thoughts out.
The point I’m coming to is this:
There is a rather small group of very good friends who read this thing. I really appreciate that you do. Your comments mean so much to me. That you take the time means even more maybe. Thank you.
You are a special bunch to me. I love you all. Lady GaGa just came into my mind with all her fans. What an ego I have!!! Me a Lady GaGa in the same sentence! 😂 She has millions of followers and my number is in single digits! But a very special single digit group you are.
PS. Why the Rey and her droid? The day before the mini stroke I watched that movie again. Can’t remember the title. That is the final frame. She feels the Force running through her. It got me back on track with my Faith. I believe very strongly that we are all connected. That’s why I write entries like this. The Force flows when we love one another. I know you feel it. The Power that is there. It moves me to write a thank you. It moves you all too, in the good you do, and the caring that you show. Feel it today. Act on it. Tap into it, and help and love others. It’s the Way to a great day.
Enjoy yours today my friends. 🙂
