I Had A Decompensation Stroke On Saturday

On Saturday, I went to the first half of the Spurs Crystal Palace match at White Hart Lane, so at least I saw all the goals.

But at half-time, I wasn’t feeling well, with stroke like symptoms, I suffered before, like bad eyesight on the left side and bad control of my left hand.

So I contacted a steward and he walked me to the medical room, where I was checked out.

They thought, I could be having a stroke, although, they seemed surprised I was so lucid and could remember details like my son’s phone number.

An ambulance was called and I was taken to University College Hospital.

They did a CT scan and cleared me to go home and then return on the Sunday to have an MRI scan.

They also said that I could stay overnight, which is what I did.

The MRI scan on Sunday ,morning, showed that I hadn’t had another stroke and they told me that it was a decompensation stroke.

The hospital fully checked me out, including doing the same mental check the doctors gave to Donald Trump, which I passed.

I was home by two.

But what is a decompensation stroke? There’s precious little on the Internet.

If nothing else, my small incident proves that the systems at Tottenham Hotspur, the London Ambulance Service and University College Hospital worked as everyone expects.
