Emmi Posted July 21, 2022 Share Posted July 21, 2022 A month ago today 6/21/22, my husband woke up at 3:30am and went downstairs for a drink of water. He thought someone hit him in the head and when he turned to look for whoever hit him the world began to spin. He said he thought he was upside down, fell 4 times and passed out at the bottom of our stairs to the 2nd floor. Somehow he woke up and dragged himself up to our bedroom and woke me. The last thing he said to me before becoming incoherent was "I'm sorry I'm not going to make it. Stroke". Miraculously, he did survive. He had a 9mm rupture of an Aneurysm in the menages behind the forehead/eyes causing an SAH. He had emergency surgery the same day we brought him in to the ER and they put 11coils in his head. He has genetically high Blood Pressure which has always been a challenge so Dr's think this is what caused the aneurysm to rupture (200/113 that day). He amazed everyone with his ability to talk, move and cognitive abilities. He is super bright, quick witted and energetic. Most would not detect that he's a beat off, but we do. He has double vision, wicked vertigo and fatigue right now, but after reviewing this site I'm hoping it's just part of the early stages of recovery. The mental challenge is becoming harder as he wants to be better now, but we are so lucky he's still here with us. I'm just trying to take one day at a time. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
