Topic: My Dear Friends
Please excuse my absence, but I have been rather busy of late taking care of Dondra who has now suffered a stroke.
The correct term is "Evolving Stroke" which means just that: there may be another, more serious one coming. I watch her closely and do what are known as "neurochecks". I get her to smile - making sure the smile is even, get her to lift both arms simultaneously, and other stuff. The stroke affected her eyesight at first (and still does to some degree) then her speech, but those are now mostly resolved.
Roger, she thanks you very much for your phone call to check on her and she was happy to hear your friendly voice.
I also have not forgotten what my Chordie friends have done for us to make her feel better and I know I promised a Thanksgiving poster with a Thanksgiving card and all the names I could remember. If I forgot someone, please know it wasn't intentional and we are both very grateful - if a little "knackered" from all the Home Health Nurses and Physical Therapists who come 3 times a week.
I don't know if this will show correctly, so if it doesn't may I ask one of the mods/admins to fix it, please?
I am sorry this is so late......
PS: If y'all don't hear from me for a few days, just know it's because I am taking care of my wife and not because I don't want to interact with you, okay?
