I'm having a rough, emotional morning. A close friend of the family recently had a cardiac event that hospitalized him, and after having an MRI, it was determined that there was evidence of two old strokes.  I haven't spoken to him directly, he hasn't any paralysis, and have learned that he seems very confused, can't drive, and his brother couldn't understand him while talking with him on the phone.  Apparently he's seeing his PMD this Friday.

 

I realize that he and his wife are taking care of it in their own way, and that's the way it is, but I'm really scared for him.  I think it stems from my own experience; at the same time my level of emotional response seems (to me) inappropriate.  Brain short-circuit?

Hi Susan, I also think it's natural to have a raised emotional response when it's someone you know.  

Maybe it's making it really fresh in your mind what a difficult time it was for you after your stroke, and you're afraid this man will have a similar experience.

My thoughts are with you, Hugs!
