07:15 pm: More Excitement

I went to the Kaiser Fair Oaks office on Thursday to have my knee checked, but I had a massive headache. I got put into an ambulance, taken to a not-very-local hospital, and had tests for a stroke eval. They think I'm probably okay. Yesterday was the first day without more headaches, so I went grocery shopping today and it was almost a disaster. I had to ask for help here and there and in the end, one of my Mexican neighbors, who doesn't speak English, carried everything indoors all at once. She's a small woman, I'm surprised she made it.

I think I may have to talk to the city and find out if there are people I can hire to do stuff for me.

Oh my, that's not good. Did they decide that you had had a stroke but no sequelae, or that you had not had a stroke?

Probably a migraine set -- I haven't had one for a long time, but I suppose that could be it. The damn dog upstairs is dashing around and I don't get much sleep these days.

Well, I can use the grocery's delivery company for food, just plan better and have cat stuff be a quarter of the order. But I'm beginning to wonder about other stuff.

Oh, lord, I'm so sorry you're dealing with this crap. Besides figuring that you're "probably okay" did they have any suggestions or ideas as to what was/is happening?

Were today's problems connected with the headaches at all? Did you get one in the middle of the trip? How are you now?

Thinking of you.

Migraines, they think. I think I'm just not eating enough, which is still difficult. I haven't had headaches for the last three days and it's going to be really wet (we're *just* too south for snow today), I'm going to stay home. Thanks. :)

Migraines. I think it can be the dogs, but the city had to decrease the ACOs because we're short of money and they don't work at the time the dogs are so noisy.

Because I can only visit once a week, my Dad now pays for someone to come in for half and hour per day to check he's OK and to make his lunch. He has had a cleaner for some time and she now comes in weekly.

At least these days it's possible to get almost everything you need delivered so that's one less worry. I hope you can work out a suitable care package to enable you to keep doing what you can and having help with stuff that's difficult to manage.

Yeah, I may ask Kaiser's Social Workers to give me an answer, too. It sounds like your dad is doing pretty well.

Marilee Down

Dear friends of Marilee,

Marilee has taken a turn for the worst. I'm Steve from her library book club and we've been concerned since she didn't show up for the Feb meeting. Several others in the group have taken action to look into her disappearance and discovered she's back in a hospital ICU. We don't know her condition but at least it sounds like her brother has been informed. We're waiting on communication from him.

During the last serious episode I started up a forum board to share information on Marilee's condition. If we need to start that up again I'll post a link in the comments here.

Have the cats been rehomed? Does anyone need anything sent through, like money to make sure everything is settled well with her stuff etc?

Rest In Peace, Marilee. You had a life full of loving and friendship, and so few have that.

Rest in peace, Marilee. It's been a few years now since we both were on rec.arts.sf-fandom, but I remember those days well.
