Mom had to call an ambulance for my dad this morning. Couldn't function very well and there was no way we could have gotten him up and in the car to get him to the hospital. Ran many tests this morning and passed them all. Once we got the results back I sent my mom and her friend to mom's treatment down at Emory. 45 minutes after leaving dad had another pre stroke episode. Had to call them back, so treatments will probably be put off for another week. Next test will be on the arteries in his neck, if blocked or narrowed will be transferred to a larger hospital for surgery. Otherwise will be treated with medication. Very scary to watch your father lose his ability to communicate, etc. right in front of you, and I was the only one there to handle it. He is resting in his room now and probably won't have the test run until tomorrow morning. Please pray that no surgery will be needed and that the medication will do it's job.
