    thanks everyone. today was good day. went out for five hours to a small meeting. it was nice and no panic attacks. i asked for help when i needed it. we all needed to go outside and there were tall steps. i look and did not try to force myself to climb. i went back into the room and said the steps are too high. someone said don't worry about it. you can't do it and will be alright.( it was a place we go to meditate and pray.)

    12/28/13 hospital journey

    at 9 pm i was helping my younger daughter with her science project and then i noticed my fingers moving slower. i looked at my hand like what is wrong with my hand. my daughter then was trying to hand me the laptop and i could not take it from her. i then decided to try to get up from the bed. it took about ten minutes to get up with a lot of difficulty. once up i could not walk. i called my other daughter to get me back to bed. the older daughter started screaming. i called my aunt on the telephone and told her i was having a stroke. she said no your not. she said she is going home and then she will call me. she lives 25 miles away and is 78 years old. i hang up from her and think maybe she is right. i am too young to have a stroke. so maybe it is my imagination. i then try to move my arm and leg and cant move them. it seemed that time was in slow motion. i then called another person and was crying telling the person i am having a stroke. my oldest daughter is running around my room screaming. the baby daughter was in shock and went into her room. the person on the telephone told me to hang up. my oldest is calling 911 and screaming my mother is dying. i thought to myself what is going. a call came in and was nurse on the phone trying to keep me calm. she is the goddaughter of the person i just spoke to earlier. as she was talking the ambulance attended were there and the police. the attendants ask about my symptoms and then called the hospital and said i had a stroke. i then started screaming realizing i am really having a stroke. one guy was telling to stop screaming or i would have another stroke. then they were trying get me out of the bed from one side to another. i was on satin sheets and kept sliding for few minutes and then the stretcher. the hospital was one block away. when i got to the hospital it was 920. i was immediately bought into a room and they started with IV. the nurse asked the ems why did it take them so long. he said we couldn't get her out of the bed because of her sheets. i have now thrown those sheets out back to cotton. i am laying on the bed and then an old man comes in the room and said he is the neurologist. he asked me to touch his finger and i couldn't and could not lift my leg. he then asked me about the timeline. it was then 945. sent me for cat scan and it was clear. he said i was in the midst of the stroke. he told the nurses to put two more IVs on my hands and that really hurt. at 1010 the tpa was administered. the dr came back again and ask me to touch his finger and i could not. he then told me that i had to be moved to the bronx to a stroke ICU. back into an ambulance and to the bronx. got to the emergency room and layed for a couple of hours waiting for a bed. finally to my room and i am hooked up to machines and someone asking me questions every hour shining a light into my eyes. my oldest daughter was with me the whole time. for the next couple days i can barely move and had to have someone take care of my every need. i had my ipad with me. being able to communicate gave me comfort and encourage especially the first 48 hours Tempii Champion December 28, 2013 near New Rochelle, NY I'm hospital Tempii Champion December 28, 2013 Had a stroke — at Sound Shore Medical Center of Westchester.
