The doctor on call felt like it was most likely a reaction to the vaccine and/or his dementia causing some sort of episode and to keep an eye on him, so we watched him until after 3 this morning. He's had some odd episodes before, and we suspect maybe a mini stroke or two.Fat Cat wrote: ↑Thu Mar 18, 2021 5:16 pmOh no dude! Did you get him to a doctor?baffled wrote: ↑Thu Mar 18, 2021 3:13 pm My dad either had a minor stroke last night or the second injection royally fucked him up. He ran a fever of 101, with Tylenol.
Couldn't find the word for his arm or hand, got belligerent, couldn't walk on his own and I had to lift him into bed. When I got over there my mom was on the phone with the advice line through their medical insurance and they were at a loss.
He's still sleeping at the moment.
Oddly enough, I'm still glad he got both injections. Assuming he didn't have a stroke, he'll be better off and able to fight infection in a way that his compromised immune system otherwise couldn't.
There's precisely zero chance I'll be getting this shit though. Johnson & Johnson or bust, brah.
My guess is with the fever, the doctor didn't suspect a stroke, and with the confusion there may have been worry about it actually being Covid. I'll try to get a nap and ask a few more questions. We're all exhausted. My girlfriend had a really rough recovery from surgery
He's got an appointment with his GP in a little bit.
I still think the mRNA injections are a good idea for people like him: old, weak, and immunocompromised. But, for those of us that are young(er) and healthy there's no fucking way I'd think that was a good idea.
