The sadness of relief

Oh I’m tired Joey boy with the makings of men,the grass is not greener but meaner

We’ve had our good times and bad times as usual in a family life.

The Morning

My wife and companian for the last 34 years, is a lady with a very strong personal character, and would never give in,give up to anything.
That morning she drove to a local market nearby, and then to the hairdresser. As she entered, she sort of stumbled on opening the door, but had her hair done and drove home alone.
When she arrived outside the house, our son arrived at the same moment and noticed that something was wrong, as she dropped a bag of mandarin oranges she had bought.
Tuesday 4 February 2014, just after lunchtime I received a telephone call in the office, from my son.
He said “Dad come home immediately, mummy isn’t to well,and her mouth is lopsided and drooping.
Papa viene a casa la mamma non sta tanto bene e ha la bocca un po storto
Tilt%20Pinball%20Machines%201931-1958[1]

Arrived home and found her sitting on the divan of the living room with a blank look on her face.  After much persuading, we got her in an ambulance and was rushed to E&A at 17.30. (She wanted to go in a taxi, plus called up her chemist to ask for some medicine -didn’t want to go to hospital, it’s nothing she says)

Emergency & Accident

The nurse immediately on arrival asked “What’s wrong with that mouth there ?”.
The patient was moved from the stretcher to a trolley bed and we were asked to go to the waiting room.
19.30 we were called to accompany her to do a TAC.
21.30 Doctor informed us
TAC Results
5 Brain Lesione in various parts of the brain

Come back tommorrow
Tomorrow
Went to A&E to find out in what ward of the hospital she was recovered ?

 Found the patient in a mens ward,patient then moved to Neurologia 1°Floor/B1 and it’s just like the picture
