A friend asked me to create a daily update  log, so here it is. I intend to update daily.

Day 1
It it all began on the morning of Saturday January 8th. I woke up around 6am with numbness in my left arm and leg. I was experiencing difficulty walking due to the inability to maintain balance. I dimissed it as a fluke and returned to bed for a couple hours. I arose around 8am feeling normal and continued for the remainder of the day as usual.

Around 7pm that evening, the numbness began to reappear and increased to the point that I ask Melody to take me to the ER for evaluation. In the ER, an EKG was performed and was reported as "normal", a CT was performed and reported as "normal, blood draw indicated that my BS was 306mg (my fault for not maintaining my medications regiment for a couple years). I was ordered to begin a 325 mg daily aspirin regiment.  I was observed for a couple hours and released for home care around 10pm.

Day 2 Sunday 01/10/16
Spent they day at home mostly resting in my recliner.

Day 3 Monday 01/11/16- Was scheduled to begin a new career today 😭
Was seen in the clinic by an Internal Medicine doctor who had more blood work ordered and a caritid artery ultrasound. Ultrasound was performed . No results have been reported.
