My husband was diagnosed with VM yesterday. The doctors gave the standard response of a two week recovery - but from what I've read today it looks like that is unlikely.
He is typically a stay-at-home dad to a 1 year old and a 2 year old - so very little downtime. If you are a stay-at-home parent who had VM, how long did it take you to feel well enough to care for your children all day again?
I don't have a lot of daytime help and am trying to figure out the best strategy to let my husband heal. I wish I had the money for day care until he is 100% well but I don't.
If it matters, in addition to the headache and nausea, he had many of the "stroke-like" symptoms including numbness on one side of the body, memory problem, and speech problems.
Thank you very much.
