Hello good people.
I’ve just been given a harsh reminder to look after myself.
This morning my younger brother was admitted to hospital with a stroke. It seems to be going the same way as my late father; no speech, can’t swallow etc. He also has the additional burden of vascular dementia. The prognosis is currently vague but the expectations appear disturbing.
He had been on medication for BP, diabetes and his dementia although the dementia is in its early stages.
Tomorrow I will call the doctor over for a check up. Never be complacent. Strokes have destroyed my dad’s side of the family.
Look after yourselves.
