We saw three neurologists today and they all say that it was highly unlikely that what happened to Pablo last night was a seizure. They think it was a mini-stroke - a TIA (transient ischemic attack). TIA is a change in the blood supply to a particular area of the brain. The most frequent symptoms include temporary loss of vision, difficulty speaking, weakness on one side of the body, and numbness or tingling, usually on one side of the body. The neurologists all said it isn't common for someone Pablo's age to have a TIA after surgery.
Not sure when he's coming home now. An MRI has been scheduled for Monday to maybe find the cause of the TIA.
Pablo is so disappointed.Yesterday, he was his normal self. Today his left eye is droopy, he has no energy, his head is killing him, he is having a hard time talking and he was just really out of it all day. He was sure he was going home today and instead, he felt like he did Tuesday and Wednesday. Yesterday was too good to be true and now a mini-stroke. I was so angry today. Angry that things took a bad turn. Angry that things could still go really wrong. I just want Pablo to get better. I don't want any more shit to happen. We've been dealt enough shit and I can't handle anymore. I'm not sure how much more Pablo can take either.
I don't know what more to say...I'm too pissed off and I just want to cry.
