I've mentioned once before about my friend and co-worker who was treated for cancer during the late spring and fall. He has seemed to recover well...getting back to work and seeming to feel much stronger, less tired, etc. And all that was great.
Till yesterday. He was taken from work to the hospital yesterday. He began reporting that he felt dizzy to a couple of folks around the building. They sent him down to the school nurse who asked a few questions and pretty quickly decided to drive him to the hospital.
By that time he was dizzy and complaining of blurred vision. The hospital took him right in and started tests. And last night and today, all his friends have been waiting for periodic calls from his wife as she has tried to keep us updated on what they've been learning.
The latest report indicated two things were going on. They diagnosed some heart issue that relates to periodic rapid heart rates which can cause the dizzy feeling. But in doing another test, they also located what they thought was a clot in his brain. They've now changed that to a tiny occipital bleed in the brain.
I have no idea if/how these two things could be related. Or perhaps it is just coincidence that both were taking place. But it has certainly made the last 24 hours stressful for his friends as we wait for more news.
And it just feels like he has been through enough this year. The poor guy deserves a break.
