Down But Not Out

Setbacks. We’ve all had them. They come in different ways.

As I write this entry I’m sitting up in a wheelchair in my hospital room. Since I have no laptop I’m using my phone. So I apologize for any errors or typos.

So what happened? Well, I was brought to the hospital with a suspected stroke Saturday evening. If it wasn’t for the quick actions of my daughter and neighbour who knows how this would have turned out. Facial droop, numbness in the face and weakness all down the left side. Typical signs.

I’ve undergone tests like MRI, CT Scan etc and all came back with good news. My ultrasound showed a 55% blockage of my carotid arteries but they don’t intervene until 60%.

Yesterday was positive as I was able to get up and take 4 steps albeit shaky ones but I was up. I sat up (pic) and Crystal L M Toth who’s been so strong through this took me outside. This morning I was able to lift my arm a little bit more than I have been able to prior.

The morning hasn’t been the greatest so far. While I feel okay laying down I’ve experienced palps, chest pain and it spread into the jaw and shoulder. Left side.

I have found out rather recently that it’s a condition called Ischemia. Basically, blood is being cut off from my brain somewhere. Most likely my legs or heart. So I’ll be undergoing another MRI and something called a CT Angiography. Not really sure what that is.

All I want to say to my readers really is this. Don’t forget about me. I’ll be back. Writing new articles, editorials and feature reviews on the FlightScope mevo, Cobra Golf KING F8 ONE Length irons and more. So stay tuned!!

Until The Next Tee!!
