First of all, that's great news JoAnn!!!
As far as my hubby's health goes, he has severe degenerative disk disease (or is it a syndrome or something else???) so bad that he is bone to bone in three different places in his back & neck, with 1 vertabrae being only 2/3rds of what it used to be ( so lots of migraines),
arthritis, he had both a moderate stomach bleed (threw up blood & a little in his stool) , and then a severe stomach bleed, 5 years later, where he lost 48% of his blood volume. None of that sent him to file disability, but what did was what happened 3 years ago last month.
He almost died 500 miles away from home & I was at home, because I was too ill to travel with him for work. By the time he drove himself down here, he was sooo ill!! I got him in to the doc & that was we found out that both
of his legs - from hip to ankle was essentially one long blood clot & both
of his lungs were 70% full of Pulmonary Embolisms (more blood clots). We are all still finding all of the ways that this has caused or triggered in him.
I did skip over several trips to the ER 4 & 6 months before this event... because I thought he was having a heart attack - they sent us home saying that he was just fine!!!
At this point in time hubby and I are just not very concerned that he may have any tbi's- but I thank you so very much for the care, concerns and kind words that you ladies have shown and said - thank you.
Besides - every stinkin' time we would go out in the woods surrounding our house, of course both of us are dressed & "treated" properly in defense mode for LD, I would get 10 - 15 ticks on me and - I kid you not- he would only have two!!!
now that's just wrong!!!
