The Latest

Hey all.


Kat's CAT scan - totally normal. SO not sure where the trouble was. A nurse in Michael's unit knew she was having it and asked about it, and when she described her symptoms, he wondered if maybe she's hypoglycemic. So...hm...

Michael's angiogram also was "negative". They didn't find a cause for what happened, so they are saying his body has basically healed itself. So now it's just getting his brain to heal from the damage done by the original bleed.... his memory was a little better today than yesterday - this was funny - he doesn't remember where he went to college or details like that, but when an ingles commercial came on, Kat asked if he buys groceries and he said yes. And she asked "why do you buy the groceries and not me?" He looked puzzled for a minute and then said "Because you spend too much money." LOL!! So obviously there some stuff still there!!!!

She thought they would probably be able to bring him home by next weekend. There's still a lot she doesn't know about what will happen at that point, but like she said, they aren't just going to let them walk out of the hospital not knowing. It'll all come in time.

Father - thank you for the results of everyone's tests today. We always like "answers" but we'll take this too. Thank you for Michael's continued healing. Touch his body, help it to mend. Help Kat and the girls to be patient with him as he goes through this time of recovery. Guide Kat in the decisions she has to make. Thank you for never leaving us. In your name, Amen.

Gina said...

Hypoglycimeia, hm? I have it. My first sign is when I turn into an Uber-b*tch. My daughter has it, too, I think. I hand her a piece of cheese when she's crashing. I wonder why I don't have a cheese-hander?!

Michael's comment on grocery shopping was way too funny.

Glad to hear the good news.

Susie said...

We are heading in the right direction it sounds! I know that the future is scary with uncertainty, but something tells me that it's all going to be ok. And friend, patience has never been one of virtues either. :-)

Michelle said...

I'm late, I'm late, I know -- but Kat I'm so happy to hear the good news. I only hope it gets better tomorrow! (which really is today, I suppose) Here's hoping it is hypoglycemia (I think) because that's an "easy" solution, right?

Romi said...

I am so glad to hear the good news! I will keep praying though. The memory thing can work to your advantage Kat! My mom has memory loss. I remind her all the time how I am her favorite child :)
