Bob attacked Paramedics
« on: April 27, 2011, 11:03:11 AM »
We had a call from Steve last night that Bob was found on the floor of his kitchen sitting with a blank stare, a bump on his head, unresponsive.  When the para medics came, he attacked them.  Finally sudued, he was taken to the hospital.
We are afraid it could be ēProgressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML), a viral infection of the brain.
This is what took our friend Jim a couple of years ago.
But until something concrete is known thats just speculation.

Hi Betty...
Yes.
Kurt and I were in Hudson New Yiork over the weekend but kept up with Bob on Facebook.
Her is the latest entry.

I dont think there has been a real diagnosis.  Docs are still just responding to his symptoms.

Ok well, if bob is breathing on his own, and he's up & alert, that is a very good sign  ;)

Well, for the moment, Bob has been transferred to BrynMawr Rehab.  This is good news and hopefully he will continue to recover.

thanks for the update! ;) Did you ever hear whether any diagnosis had been made? Poor Bob, so many problems this past year or two, but he does keep coming right back - so kudos to Bob! ;D

Mikie...
He had a seizure of some sort, fell down a flight of stairs and exhibited signs of having had a stroke, because he lost some motor control and speech. But in the end, he was sent home with no diagnosis.
