A good update...

We are all resting a little easier around here....had a few rough days, but Roger is finally feeling basically normal again.  We still don't know what it was.  I ended up taking him to the Emergency Room Friday...they put an IV in and gave him fluids, gave him morphine for pain, and zofran for the nausea.

His blood didn't show anything wrong, tested negative for flu;  they did chest x-rays, urine sample, and EKG.....and nothing showed.  He still felt bad all day Saturday. Stayed in bed almost all day.  Yesterday, he got up and stayed up but felt bad still.

All through this he has talked about feeling there terrible fears, and sense of dread.  One of the nurses said that this is sort of normal after having something so traumatic as the stroke.

Anyway, I want to thank everyone for their prayers.  Not sure how much blogging I will do but I did want to do this update.  I thought about doing it last night but was half afraid he would wake up feeling terrible again.

Just a note..

Roger is still feeling very weird...not sure what is going on.  I am not going to try to join Willy Nilly Friday 5 though I love that meme.

I took Roger out to this strip pit pictured above and we walked around it.  He got to feeling a bit better while doing that.  When we completed the lap, he sat in a lawn chair and I fished a little while.

But soon as we got home, he felt weird again.  Our nurse practitioner is on vacation and won't be back till Monday and he wants to wait and see her.    My blogging may slow way, way down till we get this figured out.

On Being thankful...

This is going to seem to be a crazy 'thankful' post once you have read it all.  First, let me say that I am really thankful that spring is near.  We have enjoyed shirt sleeve weather here this week.

Linking to Thankful Thursday
*****************
I am really thankful to still have Roger here with me.  He started out having a good week, but yesterday evening he started feeling weird.  He did not say anything till he went to bed...so I took his blood pressure.  It was okay.

This morning he got up and still felt the same.  Every morn he wants to go to Hardee's or McDonald's for coffee and a breakfast sandwich.  It is seldom that we don't go somewhere of the morn...we maybe stay home once a week.  Anyway, I told him I planned to stay home...but in a little bit he asked me if we could go...that he just needed to be out and be around people.  So we went.  I know that he can feel a bit normal out like that.  Where everyone is just sitting, enjoying a little break.

He felt weird all day till late this evening and he felt better for a while, but is back now to feeling weird.

We have been doing a lot of other stuff, so don't know if that has run him down...it did not seem to at the time, but maybe it all caught up with him.  It is just so hard to see him feel like this.   And very hard for me to blog and do anything normal...but I keep making myself.

A song remembered...

I was laying in bed, talking with Lorelei last night...and this song crossed my mind.  It was never a hit, or anything but always one of my favorite songs by the Eagles...
