Guest kaj Posted November 20, 2007 Share Posted November 20, 2007 Well, my mom will be five months from the SAH on Friday. We saw the neurologitst for the first time since the ICU hospital stay. He gave us some good suggestions that we are going to start. He told us that she cannot do two step or multistep tasks. We haven't really been working on that so we are going to start. He said that this will improve her ability to go to the bathroom. Going to the bathroom is a multi-step task, I guess I really never thought about it. Anyways, the best news is her recovery. He said that she has come far in her recovery and there is a lot of hope. He also said that if she continues to improve until June(1year) the sky is the limit in her recovery. However, if she stops progressing by June, then this will probably be her peak recovery. I am hoping for the constant progression. She is having a MRI/MRA and CAT Angio to see if there is any permanent damage. I hope this comes out ok too. Well, for those of you who have been following my mom's progress, I thought I would let you know how she is doing. I want to let you know that without this board I think I would have gone crazy. I appreciate all the advice and survivor stories. I am usually kind of down on the site and don't mean to be but thought I would share a good day. WE HAVE HOPE!!! That is all I can ask for. God Bless you all, Thanks, Kim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
