It's Almost August!

I know I promised to be better about posting to this blog. That was back in December and it's almost August! Sorry about that. It's been a crazy bunch of months.

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.
