Scared . . . . .

This weekend my mother had a scary episode that took us to the hospital.  It turned out what I thought was a stroke, was a Transient ischemic attack (TIA).  These are also known as baby strokes.  No permanent damage.  That was the first scary thing that happened.

The second scary thing was something that the doctors said.  Something EVERY doctor said.

As medical staff was coming in and out talking to us, every single one asked the same few questions:

  • Do you have Diabetes?
  • Do you have high blood pressure?
  • Do you have high cholesterol?
A couple of the doctors actually glanced at me as they were asking my mother these questions.  Every time they were asked, the hair on the back of my neck stood up.

Apparently I am in a VERY high risk group!  What wonderful news!!

As if I wasn't scared enough with what was going on with Mom, now let's continually remind me of that nasty piece of my reality.

Guess I've just been delivered a good swift kick!

My mom is going to be okay.  I just have to make sure that I am too!
