Hunh.

I don't keep up with the society crap much, as you all know, but I did see tonight's headline that Bret Michael's had a TIA and they discovered a hole in his heart.

I wonder if its the same kind of hole Bones has. As Bones ages, some say he will have a higher incident of stroke because of it, others say he will not...

Interesting.

Update-

Hunh. Found another article that said that is exactly what Bret has. PFO.

I had to look up who he is. Heh.

I know of some kids who had surgery because they had severe issues with this. Hopefully they will come up with new and better ways to handle it in the future.

He has had an appendectomy, a brain hemorrhage and now a stroke (all within 6 weeks) and the doctors say none of it's related? Talk about it coming in threes!

It has to all be related to his diabetes somehow or something.

You could probably hold this up as an example as why not to do drugs and drink excessive alcohol.

... if you are right, then 85 percent of the blogosphere - as we know it - will all be dead in the next two years (using Poison's track record to judge by.).... and add in the extra stress of writing?.... and good god, we're all doomed fairly shortly.....

.... what a wonderful ray of sunshine you are at times like these.....

A dear friend of mine had the same condition, had a massive massive stroke. He was a surgeon & his wife is a doctor as well so they recognized the signs immediately and he is perfectly fine.
