SR is in the hospital again. I'd like to request everyone be nice and gentle with the mods and supermods, no squabbling please.

I'll post when I find out something, just very scary.

Thanks, think those prayers are working. They just transferred him about an hour ago from intensive care to a regular room. That's a good sign.

He was out most of the day, but due to the major sedation.

They don't think it was a stroke (hope they don't find out otherwise later), but seizures that were the consequence of the previous stroke. It was terrifying, but guess the years of handling the seizures of our dog Blue prepared me. The paramedics did a good job, and they're giving him greyt care at Sarasota Memorial.

Our neighbors have been wonderful. One is a nurse practitioner working on her PhD who stayed with me last night at the hospital til 9:30pm. She noticed when Garrett started to have a major problem last night. They whisked me out of the room and she stayed with me. The neighbors are rallying around. They're starting to take turns walking the hounds, as I can barely walk. I need the knee replacement badly, but have been unable to have the surgery done that had been scheduled for Feb 28th (the stroke was Feb 19th). Tonight one of the ladies took me out to dinner.

No, they tried a catscan last night but were unable to complete it as he went into a seizure while they were doing it. He was in there long enough to ascertain that in all probability it wasn't another stroke. I'm sure they'll do an MRI on him again, but he had one May 9th.

My wife has had 3 knee replacements. If you need first/second hand information, we've got it.:)

PS....It was 5 years ago that she had her final operation. She does very well. Rides her bike every day.

I've had one knee replacement, the result of a car accident. It didn't go well and think it's what has messed up my other knee. The jerk didn't measure my legs correctly and has one a bit longer than the other. I have confidence in the surgeon here, but need to get in and get it done.

It's pretty much limiting my life. I can't do what I want to do. Glad it went well for her.

They have an expensive instrument that measures the knee in three dimensions and calculates where to notch the bone to insert the joint .Most knee replacement doctors eyeball it but find one who has access to the proper equipment .My wife had both knees done and enjoys muich better pain free movement .Occasionally when the weather is damp she still feels some stiffness .

The doc here is from Cleveland Clinic. He had been both an engineer and computer expert. He's very precise. I think the other guy eyeballed it and didn't have a very good eye. It never was right.

when my Grandmother had her first one done they ended up cracking the femur because the bone was soft it took much longer for it to heal than it should have and i think it got infected. When they did the second one it went much better and she's doing great now

Hopefully you will be able to get your knee replacement surgery and be spry again.

Could be. We had to have "the talk" yesterday. The poor guy was almost out cold all day, but didn't like that cath. He kept lifting the hospital gown to check it out, and I told him he couldn't be flashing the passerbys (was in the ICU so glass walls on the front). It didn't register. They almost had him comatose, except for those brief times when he woke up and was irritated with the IV's, etc.

I'm dog tired, but will give the daily update. He's much better, now talking coherently in complex sentences. I was scared to death last night as I looked up some of the medical terms on a report that they gave me. I was concerned that he'd talk in real life in those short one-liners he uses on the board. That would have driven me nuts. :D

He was awake ost of the day. They're not giving him all those sedatives. He has his old sense of humor back and was walking a bit. He might be able to come home tomorrow. So good news.

They did an Catheter Angiography on him ?After laying in the Cath Lab on that table for a few hours with his privates exposed for all to see, but who cares...They use a number fourteen needle stuck into the Femoral artery and feed the Catheter through it and up into the base of the brain .They numb the groin with drugs to insert the needle and stop the drugs but when they take it out it hurts like hell .....Nobody in their right mind enjoys a needle that big stuck into their groin .Sounds like they dissolved the clot and will have him on Coumadin, Plavix and Asperin for quite a while.....No more barbecued ribs or bacon .
