Just a quick post to say that Mum and dad went back to the doctor’s this morning to get the results of the brain scan. It showed vascular damage to Dad’s brain in several places, Mum said that the doctor talked about arterial hardening. My GP sister in law, D, has said that the best way to view it is that it’s like he’s had a series of mini strokes. It’s likely that he’ll have more over time as he’s not taking his blood pressure medication most of the time and is still smoking and drinking almost as much as ever.

I was sure that the scan would show up something, and I’m glad we know what’s wrong now. I’m just so sad that anything is wrong.
