This is a sewing blog. I don't normally post about my life but I don't know how I could not post about this.
My husband had a stroke on Friday. He woke up at 4 a.m. and said he couldn't feel his arm. Within five minutes I had called 911 and the ambulance was en route. He is currently in the neuroscience intensive care unit at a nearby hospital and is unable to move his left arm and leg. The doctors are flummoxed - healthy, active 37-year-old men with normal blood pressure and cholesterol aren't supposed to have strokes.
My in-laws arrived Friday evening and we have been taking shifts at the hospital. Friends and family are bringing food (more than can fit in the fridge, actually!) and helping with child care. We are fortunate to have good support.
No one can say what the coming days, weeks or months will bring. There is no time for sewing now but even in times of crisis I find that my mind flits back to the craft room some times, planning projects or mentally pairing fabrics. The baby needs some pacifier clips and I have all the supplies .. just need 20 minutes! I have a few backlogged blog posts so you'll see those coming up, whether or not I actually make it to the machine.
