Hi I'm new here and am hoping for advice and friendships. My mother suffered a massive stroke on Saturday afternoon. She was not able to have the clot busting drug because she had previously been in hospital for stomach ulcers and internal bleeding, and the dr said it could do more harm than good. Anyway, to cut a long story short, this is where we are at. So she had her stroke three days ago and she has no feeling in her right arm, very minimal feeling in her right leg she moves her toes when dad tickles her foot. She can't speak at all. Her right eye has dropped and looks as though it has sunk, she is eating small amounts so she can swallow, and she is drinking but sometimes chokes on it. Today they got her out of bed on a hoist and took her to physio. They said she did everything they wanted. She also had a full ct scan which the results should be back tomorrow. From what the nurse told my dad she has a clot on the brain which caused the stroke. I guess really I am after reassurance or information from someone who's had the same and could perhaps shed light on what happens now, and if she will ever talk again. What can I do to help??? I just want my Mum back again. I am broken.
