Bruce, Caroline


Hi everybody. I wanted to let you all know that I am now home. After
running several tests on me they determined that I did not have a stroke.
They seemed to be centering in on my heart for a while yesterday afternoon,
but there are no problems there either, and no brain dysfunction. So
basically, there is absolutely no logical reason for what's happening to me.
I am still incredibly dizzy, and am using a walker in order to give myself
more stability. I am not to work for the rest of the week, and I plan to
make the most of my days off. In a day or so someone will be coming here to
do an in-home assessment for physical, occupational, and speech therapy. I
don't know yet what the recommendations are going to be, but for those of
you who I've talked with in person over the past couple of days you know
that verbal communication has, at times, been extremely difficult for me.
As someone who has always been a talker and who usually has no problems
expressing myself, this is not just a minor setback for me, it's really
beyond frustrating. Let's not forget to mention the tiny little fact that
my job revolves around typing, speaking, and the ability to walk. So, who
knows what's going to happen.

Anyway, I'm going to close, but before I do, I wanted to thank everyone for
your comments, wishes and prayers. I haven't read everything yet, but I
will be, and please know that even if I don't respond I do read all
