Scott & Sunny

Scott & Sunny

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Scott woke this morning and couldnt see. Was also having facial spazms and couldnt control his face, neck and was also grinding teeth.
A stroke was suspected but later ruled out after a ct, MRI, MRA and MRV. He has edema/fluid build up in his brain. This was seen at the lower back part of his brain where sight is effected.
We are now in ICU under the phenomenal care of Dr Fernandez (brain doc). Dr Fernandez has been with us all day long and cancelled all other plans to see that Scott is taken care of.
He has just had an EEG which confirmed what was seen on earlier scans and also confirms that he is not having seizures.
Later we are scheduled for ultrasounds of pretty much all major organs.
The cause is unclear. Possibly related to the very high blood pressure. Now they are trying to find out the cause of the blood pressure issues.
He can talk and has full use of his body. He can even walk but cannot see where he is going.
We are scared out of our minds.

Good to see Sz have been r/o. It's now going to be wait and see. It seems that Scott is under good medical care. Make sure that you're taking care of yourself too during this stressful time. Hope to see a change in the right direction.
