Status update and care update website
It has not been quiet for a while. An update.
At around 3 AM on Sat. night/Sunday morning, Chris woke up feeling like his arms were numb and that he might be having a stroke. He blacked out in the bathroom, hitting his head quite hard and waking me up. We called an ambulance which came maybe 30 minutes later? He's spent 30 hours in hospitals and is now back at the apartment.
I've been sending out updates in various ways, mostly via email. Because I'm dealing with a lot of medical info, I'd like to switch off a public blog to a more secure system for these kinds of updates. You can sign up here: my.lotsahelpinghands.com/community/chris-fowlers-support-crew. Feel free to share this link with others. If you want to help now, please share stories about Chris, pictures, or other notes of support on that site.
In the meantime, this is what we know:
- Chris currently tests negative for covid (don't know if they ran an antibody test or not)
- He didn't have a stroke
- He does have a hematoma on his brainstem- effectively a bruise (from hitting the ground)
- He does have a nasty whack to the back of his head
- He is supposed to have another CT scan at about the ~2-3 week mark.
