New Challenges

Did the seizures cause a stroke or did the stroke cause the seizures?
Which caused the
 "numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg,
 confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
 trouble seeing in one or both eyes
 trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
 severe headache with no known cause" ??

His headaches have not been sudden...he's had them since last summer after treatment started....but after CAT scans and MRI's the cause is still unknown..

Bob has been forced into the  position of being even more dependent on others for things he once did himself. Presently he is unable to stand, walk or even sit up without assistance.
He is still  having little seizures whenever we help him sit up or move from the bed to the couch or recliner.
My desire is that the therapy we can obtain through Home Health will be sufficient to keep him out of a rehab hospital...and that I will stay well and strong enough to give him all the care he needs...for as long as he needs it.
We will have a hospital bed for him in our new house, which we hope to move into this week. I will put it in the living room where there are lots of windows and he will be part of whatever activity goes on there...instead of being back in the bedroom, secluded.

Our two boys and two youngest grandsons will be here from Texas this weekend for a few days

"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."
Ecclesistes 9:11
