My wife had a very bad stroke on Sunday night, not from a block but from hemorrhaging in the brain. She is still in ICU and has a tube draining fluid from her brain. They have her heavily sedated do to the swelling so we have no idea of how bad the damage is. She is moving her left leg and arm, but not the right. Angiogram scheduled for tomorrow to look at the blood vessel and see if it needs a coil to prevent further bleeding.

Thanks to all in advance
Mark

Prayers done.
As you know it will be a while before neurological outcome is know.
Please remember that even though she is heavily sedated she may still hear and understand at least some of what is said in her presence.
Please keep us posted.

Prayers up

Mark,
I know what you are going through. My wife had a ruptured aneurysm a about 6 months ago. She was in a coma for a 1 1/2 weeks and in the hospital for another 1 1/2 weeks when she came out of it. Luckily she back to normal with just a slight memory problem. She needs to make notes to remember stuff.
So I hope everything comes out ok for Sandy.

Bill

I also will be keeping both of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Please don't forget to take care of yourself during this trying time. All too often people will forsake their own well being for the sake of their spouse while in reality there is only so much that you can do for her at any given time. Be there for her, but don't forget to take care of YOU as well. You need to keep yourself strong for her, both physically and mentally. She will need you even more later than what she does right now.

Thank you to all. The up date is not much has changed. Every time they try to back off the sedation she starts to shack or shiver, that makes the blood pressure go up. The blood pressure then makes the pressure in her head go up. So they have to turn the sedation back up. the bleed was very bad and the time lost getting her to a neurologist for a drain tube was a bit longer than one would hope. but she is strong willed and pretty young (53) so we are hopeful. But she may or may not wake, or wake as a person.

Thanks again for all your support
Mark
