Hubby's Medical Emergency

Hi all! Just wanted to let you know that my husband spent Monday night at Sanford for observation. Monday morning he had experienced some stroke/heart symptoms during his jazz band rehearsal. The school sent him by ambulance to the local hospital in Sioux Center, Iowa, which sent him by ambulance to Sanford. We came home yesterday, but as you might imagine, I was not up for a return trip to Sioux Falls for Knit Night.

Larry was tested and examined by neurology and cardiology and everything looks really good, no damage. What probably happened was his heart went into an arrythmia, not quite a heart attack, and this caused a lack of proper blood flow to the brain, which brought on the stroke-like symptoms.

He is feeling better, just very weak and tired. He plans to return to work on Thursday if all goes well today.
