Thumbs down Well, this week just went to *&@#

Well, if the week wasn't bad enough already being told I have until this coming sunday to get out of my house and need to find $3500 by sunday to get into the new house...but now, it appears my dad has just had some sort of stroke.

My mother and I believe my dad has had a mini stroke (AKA 'Whispering Stroke') tonight. We are trying to get him to go to the hospital tonight but he is being stubborn refusing to go and says he will go in the morning.

Basically, all of a sudden he is having a hard time talking, slurring his words, blurry vision, and is having issues walking normally….shuffling his feet instead of walking. According to this article I found on one of the local hospital's website (Ochsner Health System » Health Library), he has several of the typical symptoms.

He refuses to go to the hospital tonight...he is stubborn like that though. Hopefully we can convince him otherwise without something major happening tonight...

Once I know more...I will let y'all know. Not asking for prayers...but lets all think good thoughts.

Much appreciated...just had to vent in some manner.

He really should go tonight because if there was any brain damage, they (and you) need to get started in trying to repair it as soon as possible. Also, they need to get him on blood thinners soon before he has any more. My dad had a stroke about a year ago, he hasn't had one since, but that doesn't mean anything really.

I am sorry to hear that. Stubborn old men can be pretty frustrating. Lets hope he listens and gets in before anything serious happens.

I hope everything turns out alright and ya'll are able to get him to go see about it. Strokes and heartattacks are nothing to play around with.

Re: Well, this week just went to *&@#

Ok, just got back from the hospital about an hour ago. Here is the deal. We still don't know what is going on. There is evidence of previous stroke/strokes. However, they say these are from several months ago.

His heart rate is way low...we are talking around 40-45 bpm when at rest...normal I guess is around 70-75. They feel that the low heart rate is starving his brain of O2. They feel that he has probably been having mini strokes for a period of time as a result of this lack of O2. These mini strokes are un-noticeable to the person usually and are not picked up with a cat scan unless there have been a lot of them in the same area of the brain. These are what they feel is starting to affect his vision and speech.

They have run a few tests today, and are going to run several more tomorrow to make sure the low heart rate hasn't been caused by any form of cardiac event. The nurse, whom I might add is a real cool guy, went off the record and said he will at least end up with a pacemaker...unless there is something cardiac related wrong.

So, basically, we are now in sit and wait mode. I will head back over there tomorrow after work and my mother is going over in the morning. Hopefully we will have some more answers by tomorrow afternoon.

So...now I am off to work through the night to make up for today since i have no paid time off...y'all enjoy....I will update ya more when I know more.

Wow, in the 40's? Do they think it's due swelling of the heart muscle or something else? Or have they even told you any guesses yet?

We watched the monitor all morning...and it hovered between 40-46 most of the morning through the afternoon.

Guesses so far are...

Clear it up for you? It did for us.

Yeah, they have a good long list of tests they are going to run tomorrow mostly to check off what is isn't. They are going to do some 2-D imaging and some sonograms and what not. They were pulling some more blood to do some additional enzyme tests when we were leaving.

Hopefully we will know what is going on tomorrow....or at least have some clarifications as to what it isn't.

Hmm. Well the good news is that strokes like that are fairly common, they will find what's causing it and hopefully have a good fix for it.

Thanks...and what you stated is pretty much why I didn't ask for prayers and asked for good thoughts instead.

rob another thing you should watch out for is weakness or numbness on one specific side of his body. a stroke is basically a lack of oxygen to the brain, and if he is experiencing any of that, call for an ambulance regardless and have him checked out. he may yell and scream that he doesn't want to go but maybe having paramedics there may change his mind about it

Re: Well, this week just went to *&@#

New update:

He's going to die.

Basically, both of his corrated arteries are 100% blocked. There is a possibility of surgery, but patients usually don't make it off the table under these circumstances.

The doctors come in at 6 am so no one is up and around to ask questions...so we don't know all the details. We don't know if there will be medicine...or what possibilities there are. Nurses know jack...all we know is what the cardio doc said in that there is nothing they can do.

So, basically, there is nothing they can do and I guess we are just in waiting mode for the big stroke.

So yeah...now I have this, the house, and chrissy *****ing up a storm behind me.

I am incredibly sorry to hear this. I've been asking my mom about this here and there (medical field for over 30 years). She said even if the nurses do know anything, only the doctor can say what it is. As for the surgery, it's pretty much what you already know.

Re: Well, this week just went to *&@#

Well, he came home today...nothing can be done...it is basically down to a roll of the dice as to whether today will be the day.

They did give him a colesterol pill to help lower his colesterol...but the doc doesn't know how blood is getting to the brain...which is a nice warm and fuzzy.

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone....I'll be around but not nearly as much as normal for a little while.
