Guest ElaineW Posted June 13, 2008 Share Posted June 13, 2008 It feels good to be able to communicate with others who have gone through the same traumatic experience. My mother suffered a SAH 5 weeks ago and is making a slow but steady progress (had pnemumonia also) and is still in hospital just about ready to start rehab. Yesterday was the first day since it happened that she has been able to drink or speak so that was a good step forward and a very emotional time for us all. She obviously has no recollection of the last several weeks and does not wish to know what happened although she has some insight as to how seriously ill she has been. There have been more downs than understandably and I am relaly unsure of what the future holds, indeed for her and also for me as her carer and only child. She has friends but no family herself so I know my life will change and I do work part time too. Would love to hear from other carers.
