I knew the pecursors. Occasional numbness in my face, headaches, etc... but they were ignored. Back on Wednesday, I was working on a tablet when I felt really tired, like everything was out of place. I aslo found that my left arm wouldn't function like my right: While the right was normal when I did a motion, such as pretending to play a piano, the left made things muddled. I couldn't work the tablet that well either. Some bedrest restored feeling, but was soon replaced by the numbness again. When I went to get the mail. I started to drift to the left. One second, I was on the gravel road, the next I was heading into the ditch. When I told my mom these things, she drove me to the emergency room. There I was asked some questions and had my blood pressure checked: it was 218 over 125. For all intents and purposes having a minor stroke. I got sent to a regional hospital by ambulance. Once I arrived, I was taken to my room and I rested. I ended up having both a CT scan ( the iodine when pumped into my IV felt the same as when a woman had a hotflash during menopause) and a MRI (the whole process was surreal. It's like lying right next to a jackhammer and then five minutes later, be subjected to bad EDM). The results were that I had a lesion in my brain's blood vessals and that a blood clot got through leading to the stroke. After and EKG showing the clots didn't come from the heart, I was discharged, but only after two days of boredom. The only interesting part is the alarm they had when someone falls out can be activated just by moving my legs. So, I look forward to the posts of sympathy, the sage advice of Brik, a quip from Chuckman (You're always on Chuck. you're always on)and any other messages. Thank you.
