Last Saturday was much like any day for me. I met a good friend I had not seen for some time for lunch and had a nice visit. Afterwards I went home to work on a baby quilt I am doing and fix supper for Vincent when he arrived home later that day. Lasagna was the food of choice. We had a quiet dinner enjoying each others company. He excused himself and promised to return shortly.
When he did arrive back he was complaining of being a bit dizzy and seeing double. He works long hours and so I thought he was just tired. He sat next to me and laid his head back. It did not take long before he was asleep. I missed his company but I let him sleep. When I got up to go to bed I attempted to wake him to join me. He would not respond. I soon realized that he was not going to wake. I quickly called 911 who arrived shortly afterwards. They too were unable to rouse him. After vitals were taken and such they decided to transport him to the hospital.
To make a long story short, Vincent suffered a mild stroke. We have spent the last four and a half days in the hospital, running multiple blood tests along with MRIs, MRAs, CTs and countless other anagrams. He was discharged yesterday to come home. Luckily he only had a small blockage that seems to have released itself. He is on the usual medicine to help to prevent further episodes . His vision is a bit messed up but we have an appointment with a nuero optometrist who should be able to help that.
It is amazing how your life can change in the blink of an eye. I find myself with all sorts of questions swimming around in my head. I want so to talk my frustrations and worries over with my best friend yet I am unable to. He is not who he used to be, at least not for now. Plus the added drama and worry is not something he needs to feel he has to handle. Keep us in your thoughts. I am not sure what this journey has in store for us but I know that we will see it through…My giveaway is still a go, just understand if I am not as punctual as before. Much love and hold precious those cherished moments.
