In late January, I had a stroke. Fortunately, I could tell that I'd had one and my wife took me to the hospital ASAP. They treated me with a medicine called TPA (I have no idea what that is short for. All I know is, it works!) I have hardly any residual effect from the stroke. The only thing I've noticed is a little numbness in my left foot. What a blessing.
Last week, our daughter gave birth to a healthy little baby boy. Our first grandbaby! In the meantime, the Miniature Club members finished their room boxes of the barbershop, and we've started work on the front porch project. I should have some pictures to post in the not too distant future - if I get any time to do that. Visits to see the grandbaby will definitely take priority!
P.S. I thought you might appreciate knowing what the symptoms of a stroke are. General symptoms of a stroke include:
- Sudden numbness, tingling, weakness, or loss of movement in your face, arm, or leg, especially on only one side of your body. (this is what I had)
- Sudden vision changes.
- Sudden trouble speaking.
- Sudden confusion or trouble understanding simple statements.
- Sudden problems with walking or balance.
- A sudden, severe headache that is different from past headaches.
