Guest cpohagan Posted November 26, 2009 Share Posted November 26, 2009 (edited) Hi all Our story starts on late august 09 when my mother suffered SAH before my very eyes:shocked: not a sight for anybody, this was followed up by a stroke in the ambulance going to the royal Vic in Belfast were she received an emergency op to remove the SAH and was 100% successful and moved to ICU within hours of the op. the surgeon sat myself and my sisters down to explain that there was another aneurysm on the right side and this couldn't be dealt with as she was to ill at the time and remained unconscious for three weeks..after she was moved to neuro ward and kept there for 3 weeks and again moved to a rehabilitation unit for a further 7 long weeks. today im pleased to say i have got mum home and apart from the understandable stress of leaving the hospital she has done really well today and im proud of her for that... so 13 weeks the long term affects seem to be speech ie..cant find the words and i find this really frustrates her and as a direct result crys and loses he thoughts i don't want to patronize her (this is how i feel) so my question is what is the best way to approach this situation without making it worse for mum? chris Edited November 26, 2009 by cpohagan grammar.. not my best point Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
