DH collapsed when we were cooking this noon. He became quite ill while on the floor and asked me to call 911. His BP sky high etc. Theyíre running tests now and giving meds. Itís a bit scary since heís never been ill. Just needed to tell someone.

Oh Renea, I'm so thankful you were there for him. I am so sorry to hear about his having a stroke. The kinda, sorta good news is that it was caught quickly. I hear that much can be done when that is the case.

I'm also glad to hear your sons are coming in. It sounds as if you were handling things, but it's always comforting to have supporting family.

...and supporting PT friends. Thinking of you and DH. Thank you for letting us know.

(((hugs)))

DH was transferred by ambulance to a major city two and a half hours away to a university heart hospital. My local hospital had difficulty getting things organized and the info I received kept changing. The staff here in the university hospital is amazingly efficient and organized. Several specialists talked to me tonight and will see him tomorrow. Iím so glad heís here. Iím feeling encouraged that weíre on the right track. Thanks for listening. Life can be a bit scary at times.

Again, I have walked in your shoes. My brother was sent to a larger hospital about 2 hours away from his hometown, which was 5 hours from where I live. The staff was great and always told me what was going on. I would eat breakfast at the hotel close by and stay the day with him. At night, I would go to Chick Fila and get a big salad. A few of his close friends came to visit also. The days were long but he was only there for a week before he was moved to a rehab facility.
Sending you prayers for peace, comfort, and strength for both of you.

My dad did the same thing. He ended up having a stroke in an area where most people wouldn't survive and he had 3 of them in the same area. He has a 50/50 chance of survival if they did surgery. So he's opting to not do it.

A few years later, he had A-Fib issues.

He's doing better.

Hope your DH is doing better.
