Becky was improving very well and had an excellent weekend. She had a follow up with her kidney specialist and they were satisfied enough that her next appointment was set for 4 months. However, on the way home she developed some numbness in her elbow which spread to her hand. I took her to the ER and told them I was suspicious of a stroke and this was shortly confirmed. Due to the fact that I got her there fairly quickly she was well within the window where a clot buster drug could help protect her brain and she was placed in the Intensive Care Unit. Yesterday she could speak but had aphasia (inability to select the correct word) although the words she got out were clear and distinct. This morning she is improved, she has regained a lot of function in her left arm. Her remaining limbs and face were mostly unaffected. I have been told she will go to a care facility on discharge for rehab before she can return home.
