I'm very stressed out right now. I just found out late yesterday that my dad had a mini-stroke last Thursday. He sounded just like his "usual" self on the phone. This time he had no lasting damage.
He said the episode happened at breakfast last Thursday all of a sudden he couldn't get his left arm to do what he wanted and some other symptoms. He lives out in the boonies in Alabama so his wife drove him to the nearest emergency room and he was checked out pretty throughly but they don't know where the clot is/what caused the minor stroke. The doctors say this is a warning that a major stroke could happen.
I am a big daddys girl always have been.I am very torn right now about staying here at home and talking to him pretty much daily or getting in my truck and driving up there asap 12 hours away plus $$ that are hard to come by money is tight or finding the funds and flying.
Do I go or sit tight? What would you do? Please let me know TODAY if at all possible.
