it was a busy day for the plapman yesterday. I walked to my eyeman to get mt glasses adjusted then stopped at afriends for a chat. he's been having health problems too. He was sheduled for knee surgery in October but when the checked his health condition the found a blockage in his heart arteries. So instead of the knee operation he ended up with a triple bypass. He has yet to have he kne surgery. While walking home my legs started to feel strange, like walking on air. My only thought was that if I'm going to have a ceasure i was goung to do it at home and not along the road. Once home the granddaughter called the Queen who took me to the ER. There the doctors dianosed a stroke and with a new policy implimented recently I was sent by ambulane to the stroke clinic in Winnipeg. They confirmed the stroke as a TIA but also said that due to the unknown state of the clot once found in my heart the couldn't have given me the clot buster as it may have sent particles of the heart clot throughout the system. I guess untill they redo the echo work I may as well stay home if I feel I'm having a stroke as there is nothing the doctors can do for me. It's getting pretty bad. The paramedics all know me and I strating to recognize them. The lady on the return trip was with me on a trip for an MIR and the one one the trip in has picked me up at home and even knows my address by heart. I sure wish they'd find a solution to my problems.
On the bright side the new grandson is doing well nad him and the daughter were released yesterday. All is well with them. I now have a new grandson whom I can teach to be rotten.:) then send him home to mom. Revenge is sweet!
