Having just read the post regarding the whereabouts of Knersie, I just thought that I would inform the Forum that I have had two Strokes in the last three weeks - just in case anyone has wondered about my lack of communication on these posts. I am -- alright --except I have a hard time focusing my eyes on things, and my tya[oing is not dfhppf! I will attempt to answer some posts if anyone is interested. Hopefully, I will 'normalize' eventually, but the Neuroligist says : "The two hours of MRI and tests says you are healthy as a horse, but we don't know why you are having all these symptoms! You may recover in a week, and it may take a month, and you may never return to what you have been!"

Really encouraging.

Anyway, that is why I haven't been posting lately. If anyone is interested. Any and ALL prayers will be APPRECIATED!

Thank you ALL!

DOC HARRIS

Doc, Sorry to hear about your strokes. My dad suffered several of those years ago. Hope you get to feeling better.
Thoughts and prayers are with you.

Your input here is important, especially for rookies like me. Do what the doctors tell you to and get well.

I hope you get better. My Grandmother had two of them. The first one took most of her vision and a little balance though I think she could have recovered if not for the second one. I don't mean to be negative; but that second one ~90 days after the first one pretty much wiped out most of her mental faculties for the eleven years she lived past then. Strokes are hugely serious.

God bless. Strokes are an incidious incident.Being a nurse I've seen robust youngish people suffer a stroke. I think a stroke. cancer,motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis would have to be amongst the worst afflictions to experience.
Our thoughts are with your from down under.

Thoughts and prayers are with you Doc. I know how frustrating it must be to not have any answers or any "real" answers. I wish you a speedy recovery and that they get to the bottom of this..
