my hubby has had three possibally 4 strokes not sure about the fourth as he wont go to the hospital hes been a bit odd today making lots of shouting out noises and tonight had a really bad nose bleed i am really worried that he may have had another stroke or that one could strike does anyone else have any info as to weather there could be a connection with nose bleeds and strokes thanks
thanks for your reply mulchie i am worried but he wont go to the doctors hes not right making lots of shouting noises again i will have to keep a close eye on him today he just hates being in hospital i do understand but he wont go and i cant drag him there its very difficault even explaining that he could be really poorly or worse doesnt make any difference
I am so sorry Nannymax, I know it must be very worrisome for you to have all this going on. I too can understand his reluctance to go in, and your fear of the worst. I bet the more you pressure him to go see the doctors the worse it gets.
Can you give his doctor a call and explain what is going on? I know you cannot force him to go in, and you are his comfort and support. It is so hard to be in your shoes.
I recently went through something similar with my own dad, and I had to remain the person he trusted in this world. I thought I knew what he needed (more medical care) but he really just needed to be home and go through it there.
Please keep in touch, and let us know what is going on...your are in my prayers.
I am so sorry for what your husband is going through. Yes you are right he should be at the hospital but I understand why he doesnt want to go. That makes your job so much harder. You are in my prayers I wish I could help more than that. Please keep posting to us.
God Bless Mulchie

This must be terribly upsetting and we are so sorry for your anguish and whatever is happening. Language issues and writing changes could be stroke indicators. Going to the ER is what some might suggest and not waiting for Monday. But I was also stubborn about not going anywhere so I understand that too.
Keeping him calm and comfortable may help ease the stress. Hoping for the best for both of you.
You are right to insist on a scan. Your hubby has one brain and someone better be taking care of it. I vote for the ER also and insist for someone to find out what is going on. You dear lady, you are such a good caregiver to your husband. YOu shouldnt have to fight these fights but for some reason we have to insist on excellent care for our selves and our loved ones. Ask this specialists if he gets all mad "what would he do if this was his wife or mother or father. Would he insist they get the best care. Would he want someone looking after their brain.
nannymax good luck Your in my prayers dear lady. Keep posting. We are all here for you.
God Bless Mulchie

For less conflict in the doctors office, may I suggest you just call the doctor on the phone before going to see him or her. This way you wont have to upset your husband, and the doctor will know ahead of time the questions to ask and the needed treatment.
