Subject: RE: BS: 'Small' Strokes
There's my Pat. :~) Of course you're right. (Warren Zevon would have loved my doc.)
TIA here? Transient Eschemic Attack
Transient means the effects go away. Ischemic means clot-caused = clot causes cessation of O2. (Other type is hemmorhagic(Sp?!?!) = brain bleed.) My types were Ischemic and the one identified-at-the-time episode had been thought to be Transient (or TIA), but ain't. Thus these also involved a larger number of cells. A TIA is a brain fart. (A type of brain fart.) In a stroke the brain goes ahead and sh*ts itself. It turns out you can never trust a brain fart, either, apparently. ;~)
I completely trust my brain to rewire itself, but it takes a dance I am still learning.
Another effect: when my computer goes on the fritz I can't think my way through the possible issues, but if I shut it the F down for a couple of days a few more ideas come to me and I can relaxedly take another run at seeing where the problem may be.
Brain at the moment is doing better than puder (as usual), so I'm fine but I'm offline a lot more these days.
JiK: Can I just plug the new external HD into my head? If so I can have the techie transfer all the files I was in the middle of moving when the puder got mad, and boogie on. :~)
Alice: YEAH. (((Alice)))
