Wife in Hospital

Finally home tonight after spending 13 hours in the ER with Sandi. It appears she has had a "minor stroke." They finally have her blood pressure stabilized and have stopped her throwing up from her head pain. They have her headache pain level down a bit as they have her heavily sedated this evening.

Some tests were done today with more expected in the morning. Their major focus today was trying to get her stabilized as any movement of her body caused massive blood pressure spikes and body tremors along with some other issues. Thankfully, the blindness in her right eye that came on suddenly this morning seems to have passed as her vision came back this afternoon. At about the same time, she regained movement in her right hand.

Because of my own cardiac issues and the fact I fell in the middle of the ER scaring the heck out of everyone, I was  kicked out and told to go home and rest.

I didn't argue since they had her stabilized.
