As I wrapping up my 17 day trip to China, I Face Time Mike at 7:30 pm on Saturday as I do every day. It appears that Marissa is wearing Mike out. The of them were arguing. They are on their way to dinner. So i decided to call back 30 minutes later to see how they are doing. I Face Time and my neighbor Todd answers the phone and I see commercial ceiling tiles in the background. Todd said that Mike called him for help. Mike had a hot flash and was sweating profusely. Todd told Mike he had two options hospital or Urgent Care facility. Todd's wife Tali picked up Marissa and told her that she was having a sleep over at their house. Marissa was thrilled to play with their 3 girls and 2 dogs. Todd took Mike to Urgent Care and they immediately called for ambulance. Mike was omitted at Kennestone Hospital in Marietta GA with Blood Pressure of 200 over 100. I also contacted my friend Randy and he went to the hospital the next day. Between Todd and Randy they were with Mike all hours until I got home from China. They both sent me updates.
At this point all I knew was that: 1. Mike had bad a headache and was dizzy 2. They are conducting tests to rule out stroke 3, Mike had a broken blood vessel in his neck and had issues swallowing
I landed in Seattle and had 60 texts as our friends started to hear about Mike. I called my car service and had them take me from airport o hospital. They told me that Mike had an MRI to see if he had a stroke.
