TIAs are "mini strokes"...a stroke causes permanent damage, TIA's come and go. They are affecting her right side. She hasn't lost use of her right side, just weak. Her right side of face is slightly off and when the TIA hits, her speech gets very slurred and then ten minutes later, all is ok. She had every conceivable test known to man...all came back negative. No blocks, no bleeds, no vessels collapsed. They "think" the mini strokes were caused by, are you ready? SUDAFED. She takes it daily...well, not any more.
She's now back at assisted living. I spent the night in her room last night, hoping today she'd be acclimated, but she is not. She is more confused than normal. Just very sad
