Just a little update

Hello everyone.
I just wanted to come and explain whats been happening so that you very kind and caring people who have left beautiful comments and prayers will know how things are.
As many of you know, my son had a stroke in february and we have been very lucky that he is here with us. He has been recovering since then and having medications to try and bring his blood pressure into check as its still too high. Before i left the last message, Adam had paid a visit to his doctors and his bp was high again and he had been feeling dizzy a lot. The doc did some checks and arranged immediately for a scan at a hospital out of town after the weekend. At the time it all seemed to really close in on me, maybe because we had already been through so much and it seemed like a new worry and i also have asthma and chest problems right now so i maybe was just vulnerable. I was trying to be strong but it all got too much so i just couldn't cope with managing all the things i do and also be happy and upbeat online .. couldn't face blogging etc.
Since then we have had the results back from the scan. Without going into details, the news is that nothing has changed. This is good news because adam still has a small anuerysm which he worries about. The doctor rang him and told him that the dizziness is caused by the healing of the site where the stroke was so its very sensitive. This is huge relief and i feel much better in spirit now and able to cope again, however i am a little under the weather with my cough and asthma so i shall be taking things slowly.

Thanks so much to all of you for your kind thoughts, and hope to get around to visiting each of you just as soon as i can

Don't worry about visiting blogs to leave comments - just concentrate on getting yourself better. It is great to read that you son is making steady progress.

Sounds like you body is telling you, that you need to now rest up, and concentrate your energies on yourself. You have had to much to cope with and have been incredibly strong supporting all your family. Now just take time to support and heal yourself.

Bless you

I reckon your body is telling you to get yourself some you time! Glad to hear that the your son is on the mend. Try to think of blogging like chocolate - it isn't essential, a little bit now and then is good, and if you really want to treat yourself, pig out but just occasionally!!! said...
