I write this from my phone in my hospital bed. I had another one of my neurological episodes yesterday. There were a few small differences, the biggest one for me was that it happened on stage during one of the performances of the musical I have been building up to this semester. I carried on, like the girl I am, and didn’t drop my line. I did however fall down the stairs and sprain my ankle.
The fall occurred as I lost control of the left side of my body. This loss of movement lasted only for a few minutes and I have since regained full function.
The disorientation that comes with these stroke-like episodes stuck around for a good 4 hours but I was fortunate to be able to make it to Fremantle Hospital with the help of my tutor within half an hour of the incident.
This morning I have been up with the doctors since 4am going through my obs and giving my samples for tests. I have just returned from an MRI to see if the masses have returned to my brain and am now waiting for my folks to arrive from home and Wally to come with ideas for progress.
I will be keeping you updated, do not worry. Here is my lovely ankle.
