Last write up today… precautions taken…edited 2

This whole medical journey just keeps taking twists and turns and my head is spinning like the girl from the Exorcist!!!

It just all finally makes sense… and it piss’ me off, that I didn’t remember the stuff about mini strokes… that was part of training decades ago… well at least I thought of it today…

Went back and looked at the blog, at least I had enough common sense to document the symptoms when they started…

From around the middle of July of 2018 till Jan 1, 2019…. I was having mini strokes…

Mike will back that up 100%, once we both sat down and looked in detail at what the cause and symptoms are… it fit me to a “T”….

Scary, but hey, at least I know now, that my gut was right about all the precautions I started setting up in our home and Mike has a plan for the ambulance…

You see, our little acre has a long drive way with a secure locked gate… So I have had to give my husband a crash course on what to do and not do in an emergency…

Fortunately, because of his own heart failure, we have nitro in the house and baby aspirin… all he has to do, call 911 and go unlock the gate… if it’s just a stroke, if it is a heart attack, well, that just may well cost me my life and theirs nothing we can do about our living situation or location on the island…

I think it’s time I got on-line and ordered a defibrillator and heart monitor… I have everything else I need… but hubby, he needs equipment and can’t go the old fashion way with me… where as if it was him… I can keep him alive till EMS shows up… so yep, I be in one big catch 22 right now…

At least now I know, and so does Mike, if a mini stroke happens again… we go straight to the hospital and let them deal and the VA can just pay for it!!!

The purchase of a defilbrilator is way out of my price range… I am so screwed….

Hubby contacted our senator, think he’s a little freaked, hopefully they jump in, they got the surgery done after my fighting the VA for 10 years… hope springs eternal….
