    Says who :shadedshu :p

    Yeah I just got back from seeing her, she's pretty much normal. She's already demanding stuff so she must be good. I think the docs said they will do another evaluation Monday to figure out when they will release her. :D

    Yep sounds like she's doing better :toast:

    Watch the hospital like a hawk over the weekend Cap'n. Some tend to get lazy with the quality of care when the staff levels drop on the weekends.

    Well the last day or so I've been close to regular, only difference is when I get out of work I usually came home and got on the PC which I don't do now because at my moms house I don't have a PC. So I post a little more when home, but not much different from now.

    Glad to hear she's alright CP! :) I'm sure the doctors will get her on some sort of regimen to strengthen her. It's so good to hear good news like that! I will have a drink tonight to celebrate her recovery! :toast:

    I know where this is going. :shadedshu

    Let it be man :toast:



    She will be fine man. :toast: They will probably let her go home first part of the week and of course she is going to say something like "she is to weak to take care of herself right now" which she will be absolutely fine and perfect strength. She coming to stay with you Cp and make up for some lost time. :toast:

    Na, you dont know where I was going with it, your assuming and didnt anybody tell ya to never assume :shadedshu but I was just going to say strokes are a horrible thing... It just reminded me of my mum and how it affected her.

    I hope she's getting better every day David... with modern medicine they can do amazing things that they couldn't do just a few years back.

    She's going to be around for many years bro :D

    Glad to hear she's getting better but you and / or your family must be very cautious for @ least the 1st month because the risk of getting another stroke is high within that time frame. Vigilance is needed in order to prevent a 2nd one from occurring.

    Last February 2nd my mom had one too: it affected all of her right side but not her speech. I brought her to my place when she was release from the hospital because it was closer to the hospital where she was having physical therapy and, with the help of my sister, there was always someone with her around the clock for about 2 months.

    When she was @ the hospital, there were 2 other women then who also had strokes: one of them had a much more severe one about 15 days after my mom was released from hospital.

    Currently, she's doing better but has to go to physical therapy again because of her right leg, and her short term memory was affected a bit.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    My mother also died from a massive stroke in 94'. She never got to see my children, her grand children. So I know where Cp is at in this. I am also so glad it is going to be a happy ending for him. Some of us weren't so lucky. All my prayers of late have are still going to him and his family. We are all pulling for you man. :toast:

    Thanks for all the best wishes and posts guys.

    Yeah right now what we are more worried about is that she is a bit out of control with the meds that she was taking for her Schizophrenia. She was given her disability years ago and that was one of the reasons but after some time the doctors decided that she never did the treatment but she was normal so they just let it go. But I guess after the stroke and the effect it has on your brain, and being in a hospital and all, it's coming out for the first time. So they are working on reworking her meds to find some that suit her now, since she wasn't on any before. But I mean, that doesn't worry me as much as all the other things did. She's not going nuts neither, she's just a bit paranoid and agitated but nothing major.

    Anyhow, I'll continue to keep you guys posted. :toast:
     
    HTC, fullinfusion, okidna and 3 others say thanks.
