It seems I had a "mini" stroke on the first of Jan. I had been outside hooking up my water hose and turning the water back on. Felt a little tired, decided not to go to the grocery store, just sat down in my recliner and read. I got up to do something and realized my knees felt like they wouldn't hold me, just like jello. Sat back down and waited for a while, got up again and still the same thing. My right leg seems to be worse than the left. Called my daughter and she came the next day and took me to the grocery store, I got one of those electric carts, but when I tried to lift my right leg up on the cart I had to lift it by hand. Called my doctor and made appointment for the next day. He didn't say for sure, but I am pretty sure I had a mini stroke. He put me on blood thinners, which means going to the lab for test every week! Next week will be other test to see if I did have a stroke. A CAT scan and sonogram on my arteries in my neck. Then what???Guess any travel plans I have will have to be put on hold. Very depressed!
