Dying Man’s Daily Journal – STROKE


Start with a question if I may. When I was out visiting Shauna, she signed on to the blog through google. Now below each of my postings there was some sort of a video attached. I check form my own computer and it is just not there. Does anyone else see it, if so please don’t click on it. I don’t know where it came from or what it is.

I have a lot to write about but just don’t seem to have the energy to do much of anything.

Back into all the check ups and tests with all the various medical specialists. I still have the headache and something is affecting my vision. There is something with my right eye. Seemingly out of no where my eye just clouds over so that I can see nothing but white, nothing else. That only lasts for about 10-15 seconds. That fades and then it is hard to describe. It is like if your TV looses its signal and there is just static. It takes about 10 or 15 minutes and that fades and the vision returns.

Have seen the doctors and with a CT scan and MRI and have determined I have crystalized plaque in the major arteries leading into my head. If i understand the doctor correctly they suspect little pieces of that crystal is breaking off, floating through the blood stream until lodging in the eye. Huh, now I have been preparing myself  for a heart attack or such but a stroke scares me. See a stroke specialist this afternoon and I guess we will see.

    All the best Bill….hoping for good results. Was wondering if you went to the stoke prevention clinic at the St. B. They were wonderful with me when I suffered a very mild stroke 2 years ago. No lasting affects or problems since.

    Also, no video attachments here.

    Oh geeze…..another speed bump that you get to deal with. I’m hopeful, with all the specialization in matters of the heart, that there’ll be a intervention that will help with this crystalization ordeal.

    And no–no video attached to the posts.
    You might want to have Shauna run a scan for spy-ware and have her remove any that are detected. I run your web log through a Chrome browser (which is a google browser) and I’ve not encountered any issues–however spy-ware will oft times attach links to advertisements, including videos.
    That might be the issue?
    Wild guess!

    ((((((((((((( Bill )))))))))))))))

    You just take care of you and let people love ya!
    Let us know where things land as you can. People are caring about you.
    *hugs*

    Yes … I see it. As I was scrolling down, all of a sudden a line appeared on the screen that has a link. I didn’t click on it, but I did screen capture so could send to you if you like. Also … sorry about the news. You are in my prayers.

    No sign of an errant video here. Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Bill, Just checking up on you. Hope the visit to the stroke specialist went well.

    No videos here. I use Firefox as my browser and have an ad-blocker installed, so maybe that’s why I don’t see them.

    I’m so sorry to hear of this latest bump in the road. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
