Wow, what a day my friends. My appointment with my neurologist was at 11:15, the bus got me there at 11:00. I sat in the waiting room until 2:00p.m. Then, the nurse finally called me back. She weighed me, took my blood pressure, and my pulse, and asked me a few questions. Then, she put me in another room to wait for my Doctor. I sat there until 4:p.m., and then he finally came in the room. Crazy!! But, I truly appreciate the time,and attention he gave me. He really listened to me, and answered all of my questions. He is a very nice, Christian man. He cares about his patients well being. He is concerned about me. My out of control diabetes is a major concern. That, and a blood clot, are the two reasons I had my stroke. I found out today, the blood clot I had was in my left carotid artery in my neck. It traveled to my brain, and along with the excess blood glucose caused from my diabetes, caused my stroke. Also, I found out, they cannot go in,and clear out my blocked artery because of the location. Something else I found out today, there are four main arteries in your brain, two of mine are totally blocked, not just one. Both of mine in the back of my brain, are blocked. He scheduled an MRI/MRA to be done next Friday, June 13. He wants to make sure the two arteries in the front of my brain are still open. Continued prayers would be very much appreciated. I love you all.
