Talk about a bother!  I’m relaxing though!

Yesterday morning I awoke and instead of walking unsteadily to the kitchen for a coffee, I staggered to the kitchen for a coffee.  It wasn’t long before I suspected something was wrong.  I drove down to the bazaar with Pris and nearly had three accidents.  I talked to people with an exaggerated drawl in Russian… because I couldn’t do anything else.  It didn’t take me long to come to the conclusion that I’d had another stroke… with this one affecting my motor skills and speech instead of eyesight.  If it wasn’t so serious, it would be pretty funny.  I sound… like a Texan!  I guess it’s one more adventure! 

Bruce took me to the Dr’s in Kiev and she confirmed suspicions.  True to form, she suggested hospital, but also true to form, I declined that adventure.  I’ll rest at home and should be getting something through a drip all this week and an MRI on my head Monday.  A neighbor used to be a nurse and she’ll come down each day. 

The ladies are having whatever the female equivalent of a buck’s night is upstairs tonight.  They sound like they are having a wild time!  80’s theme.  Wish I could post some pics, but I doubt they’d let me near them with a camera.  Not sure I want to see more than I already have, anyway. 

Today, the lads went off to another town to play soccer.  Jesse came home and reported that the foreigner team lost all three games they played.  He enjoyed himself though.  And it was good for the guys to spend more time with the students.

Time to do some more relaxing…
