Stroke. Aneurysm. Subarachnoid Hemorrhage. NICU. Visospasm. Angiogram.

Some of these I'd heard of, some not until this week. Now they're all words we use in every other sentence, in every conversation, in every thought.

He was doing so well. He knew he wasn't out of the woods, but he was feeling good! They scheduled another angiogram to make sure they didn't miss the aneurysm the first time through last Friday.
Things were going well all morning, they brought him down, prepped him... then something went wrong. He knew something was wrong.

Yesterday turned into the worst day of his life.

He had a stroke.
A small one
but still a stroke.

He said it was worse than even the original episode that brought him down here to the hospital in the first place (bleeding in his brain).

The prognosis is good but there's a lot he has to get through to start feeling better.

Thank you for your support, love, and prayers; we really appreciate it!
