My mother had a stroke yesterday evening that broke an aneurysm. She is now sitting up and able to move both her arms and legs. She is having trouble saying some words, so there will be some speech therapy.
I haven't been able to go see her, the boys have passed their sickies onto me. So with a fever of 104' I'm not allowed into the hospital (of course I wouldn't want to go get her or anyone else sick) but it makes my heart hurt to not be there.
Mom was sent home today. We will hopefully be well enough to visit early next week sometime! They said it was something about her sugar levels, so she's got a blood glucose monitor now and she begins some speech therapy next week. She sounds upbeat and like she's doing really well!
I'm so sorry! Sending lots of prayers.That's a positive sign that she can move her arms and legs already. My dh had a small stroke last month and the only lasting effect has been a little numbness in the corner of his eye and on his palm.
