Vertebral Artery Stenosis
Vertebral artery stenosis. That’s the official diagnosis from the neurosurgeon. Essentially, there are four arteries that feed blood into the brain; the two arteries on the left side of my brain, one in the left node and another in the carotid artery are fifty percent blocked and need to be opened up by removing the plaque causing the blockage.
So on March 20 I’ll be admitted to St. Vincent’s Medical Center to have surgery performed to correct the problem and prevent another mini-stroke from happening. I have to get a lot of ducks in a row before then, including trying to get my past due bills somehow near current and how to come up with the funds to put food on the table beginning today.
It’s not easy going through this shit alone. And broke.
