Stroke

My mom had a stroke yesterday... uhh thursday.. whatever day it was I left for Jersey.

Or rather she had a series of small strokes a few days before, when she was in the hospital, and they weren't sure what was wrong. They figured out it was PROBABLY TIA (mini-strokes )yesterday.

She's OK, disoriented with limited memory, and physical co-ordination, but there doesn't seem to be any additional permanent impairment.

They ARE worried about more of them, and about her unrepaired aneurysms bursting; but there's really nothing they can do.

Anyway I was waiting to write about it until I got some more details, which I did today. More tests next week.
