Dad had his MRI results interpreted by his doctor. The report read Established infarct and cerebral atrophy. Big scary words. The doctor’s diagnosis was ischemic dementia.
I am thankful for a few things.
That his recent dizziness is not caused by yet another stroke. The doctor explained that the word “established” in the report meant “existing”.
That his condition is mild. Usually he is just forgetful and a bit confused. I hope that it does not get progressively worse.
Dad was happy with the results. He was upbeat and more cheerful for a few days after visiting the doctor.
Thanks to all who dropped by with your comforting words and prayers.
Sorry to hear about your dad. I hope he recovers soon.
He has recovered from his stroke from a while ago but lately his memory seems to be deteriorating. I just hope it doesn’t get worse.
Glad that it turned out to be ok.
Hug your dad for me, sigh so hard for me to digest this parent getting old phenomenon. I always remember his smiling face whenever I go for my numerous sleepovers at your place, how patient he was , him and your aunts, putting up with two silly giggling girls.
Yes, those were the days.
Glad to hear the good news. Btw, you got tagged.
Oh, I’ve done this, just haven’t published it yet. I’ll update to include your link. Thanks for remembering me.
