Robin2 BS: Advice on Strokes (37) RE: BS: Advice on Strokes 30 Sep 04


Rapter,

Sorry to here about your mom, but it sounds like she is going to make a good recovery!


I suvived a major stroke two years ago, and I think it is scarier for the family than it is for the victim in some ways. The stroke patient isn't always aware of how different they behave, due to mental confusion. One thing that helped me was for someone to be present to make sure any instructions by docs were written down and explained to me (sometimes over and over at first)

Also be aware that a stroke can really mess up balances in the brain, which can cause depression, crying, and temper. These things go away as the brain heals, so be patient!

Your mom is going to be fine!! My stroke left me at first unable to walk, unable to read, and my right side unable to move, and blind in my right eye. I'm back to working full time, I have regained all but fine small movements in my right hand, and I still see improvement every month!
