At about 7:30 last night, I apparently suffered what Doctors call a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA). In common parlance, it is referred to as a "mini-stroke."
It seems that blood flow to a part of my brain became temporarily blocked by a clot. I had gotten up to get a cup of coffee, and according to the folks at the radio studio, I dropped onto the floor, out cold. They told me it looked like I "dropped dead on the spot."
Within a minute or so, I came around, but had a horrific headache and was slurring my speech. I had almost no ability to use the right side of my body. Off to hospital they took me.
The E.R. did imaging and a slew of tests. As this was being performed, I returned to pretty much normal. My speech is still a bit off, and I am having trouble remembering some things, but Docs say this will subside.
Docs say they believe I had a transient ischemic attack. Apparently, the things that lead to my heart attack last April, can also lead to a stroke.
I'm on blood thinners and anti-clotting stuff for awhile.
Docs told me that stress is a big factor in this type of incident and asked if I am under stress?
Under stress? Are you kidding?
My country is falling apart. There's actual civil war brewing in Virginia. My President is being fraudulently impeached. Our country is doing things overseas that are all leading to World War 3 and I have a constant battle for financing the show and this web site. Stress? Nahhhhhhhhh.
