Please keep upton_ogoode (Mike) in your thoughts and prayers.

He is having some health issues and is on the mend....

However, we need to remember him daily until he is completely out of the woods.....

Taken from Mike's Facbook page.....

"I have debated whether or not to write this post. But, I understand that some may be confused as to my situation, so I'll try to clear it up a little.

This past Tuesday morning around 4am, I woke up with the worst headache I can remember ever having. I got up to take some aspirin and when I turned on the bathroom light, I did not have any vision in my left periphery. Other than the headache or loss of my vision, I felt fine, no numbness or other pain. No paralysis, speech loss, or loss of any other function. The appointment secretary for my doctors group said that they could not work me in Tuesday, call back the next day. When I called on Wednesday, that person said to get there NOW. After spending most of the day at the doctors office trying to find a facility that would not demand cash up front for an MRI procedure (all except one wanted a minimum of $1500 down and several that demanded around $3500 be paid in full up front) . That evening the test results revealed that I had a TIA or mini stroke. Now I must say that I was very relieved with that diagnosis because all of the signs and symptoms pointed to the possibility of brain tumors. I have had a few friends who were diagnosed with tumors, none of whom survived for more than months. So, if I have given some the impression that I don't have serious health issues, then I must apologize for that. Any stroke, mini or maxi is never good. A mini stroke is a warning sign of very serious issues mainly with the circulatory system.
I have always tried to find the humor in any situation that I have been in.
That's why I have made a few jokes about "driving like all of the other Nashville drivers" and "the bad news is I had a stroke and the good news is that I had a stroke." Gallows humor or black humor I guess you call it. But it is serious. I had an ultrasound and an echocardiogram yesterday. I will have the results next Tuesday. Until then, the doctor has told me to not strain myself and to rest and eat better (Hence the bacon and Waffle House smart**s remarks) I'm sorry folks, but if you know me well, then you expect my reaction to be a wisecrack about it.
So here's what I know
1. My blood pressure is very high. In the 160/95 range. I'm now taking additional medication to bring it down
2. I have had a TIA stroke. There is the possibility that I could have more and they could be much more severe.
3. I will know what the next step is on Tuesday when the results of my heart test are in. I am prepared for news of heart trouble as it runs in the family.
4. As an early Christmas present, I am finding out how many people are concerned about me and I am a little sheepish about the response. But please know that I cherish each prayer and thought that is coming my way.

Last of all, I will tell you this: I will remain as positive and upbeat as I can. Cracking jokes, making wisecracks and smart**s remarks is how I deal with it, and if you see me and I'm not doing that, call 911 cause I'm in trouble.
So, if prayers and positive thoughts are medicine, then I'm overdosing even as I type this. Some of you have offered to help and I really appreciate that. Here's how you can help:
1. Keep me in your prayers and thoughts.
2. Take care of yourself and never ignore warning signs.
3. When that fat guy in a red suit comes down your chimney, grab his wallet, ain't none of this gonna be cheap.
4. Have a blessed and very Merry Christmas because that's exactly what I plan on doing.
Sorry for the long and rambling post"
Mike West

First of all, prayers and healing vibes on the way. Secondly, I love your attitude. If you can laugh about it, it will work out OK.

Thanks for all of the prayers and positive thoughts and vibes, it is the best Christmas present I could receive. I'll know the results of my cardio testing on Tuesday the 27th, but I suspect that a surgical procedure is next up on the list. Until then, I wish each and every one of you, including the ones here that I snipe and snark with, as great of a Christmas as I am experiencing. It is the outpouring of love ad friendship that reminds me that my riches are so incredible a to be embarrassing. May your's be the same. God bless and Merry Christmas to everyone. As someone said: "Y'all a great bunch."

Somebody please tell Mike that if he isn't on an aspirin regimen, to please start taking an aspirin daily as it will keep the blood thinned, which in turn lessens the risk of a blood clot which is the root cause of TIA's or CVA's (big strokes). TIA's are a precursor to a CVA, so Mike kudos to you for quickly getting medical attention. But I cannot stress enough, if your MD specifically said to not take an aspirin, please start. It may save your life. 81 mg is OK, but 325 enteric coated is the way to proceed until your MD and you talk. And if you experience TIA symptoms again, CHEW 4 81mg ASA while you are dialing 911.
Continued thoughts and prayers to you brother, if I can answer any questions or address any issues you have, DO NOT HESITATE to PM me. I'm up until 4am usually. Willl be this weekend as I'm working today and Christmas Day. Best wishes, CCU John, RN
