My Dad actually went to the doctor. He had been feeling dizzy since being prescribed some medicine for his shoulder. He drove here last Friday (again) and once he arrived, he immediately went over to my neighbors to get aspirin (because he had no idea if I had any and if I did where I would keep them). He sat over there for an hour and told them he had felt dizzy driving over here too. Dad also told my neighbors he had felt dizzy Thursday as well. According to Mom, he got up Saturday, said he was dizzy, and was going to the doctor, but of course, he did not go. When I talked to him Saturday night he told me he was "fine" all day. Mom told me he was dizzy again Sunday and he slept pretty much all day. OH - and I forgot to add I fibbed and told him my nursing friend (Debbie - that would be you) told me it was not normal for that medicine to make someone dizzy and he should be checked out. I didn't talk to Debbie, but I knew he didn't know that so. . . . Well, I was trying to make a point to him. Anyway, he woke up dizzy again this morning and he actually went to the doctor. They ended up doing a cat scan. The scary part is that he has had a small stroke some time in the past (who knows when) because it showed evidence of that, but there was no bleeding or significant damage from it . That he had had a stroke DID get Dad's attention as well as the idea that they thought he was having one this morning which was causing him to be dizzy (for right now). The good news is that he is dizzy due to an inner ear infection and a sinus infection. He now has new meds and is supposed to take a baby aspirin every day. I am VERY thankful this is all it was. . . Oh - and for those of you who have heard me talk about my neighbors, Dad called them and told them about his day before either he or Mom told me about it!!
