I am so very thankful that God led me to this message board. You all can never know how much I appreciate all the prayers. Thank the Lord, Dale is better, not nearly back to 'good' but at least he isn't hallucinating or being as confused and upset. Continue to pray for him. I took him to our family doctor and his white blood count had doubled since the morning we were in the ER the Saturday after Thanksgiving so he has infection somewhere. They gave him antibiotics. The nurse at Mayo clinic said that the infection could make the encephalopathy worse. While I was at the doctor, I asked him to check me. My blood pressure was 170 over 110. He said I was a stroke waiting to happen. He doubled my bp medicine. He also gave me some meds to help me cope. I had not slept since the morning before that visit. He kind of wanted me to slow up at work, but that just isn't possible financially and also because of Dale's insurance being from my job. Pray that my blood pressure gets under control soon. I don't know what we would do if I were too have a stroke. You are so wonderful to support each other like you do. Thanks again, Revella P.S. Sorry, seems like I am always complaining about something!
