Re: My Mom had a Stroke 1 1/2 Week Ago
My husband had a massive stroke 2 yrs. ago this month. He was in a rehab hospital also and got very agressive therapy. The director of this rehab hospital said his cognitive level was 0. Well, he was wrong. He got great therapy and can feed, walk, bathe, and dress himself. He still has speech problems but understands everything that you say and understands everything that is going on. He just can't speak his words that he is trying to say and usually ends up drawing us a picture (which works out great). He sings a lot and loves to go back to the rehab center and visit the therapists and nurses who cared for him. Every day is a NEW DAY for him and he does something new.
Just have patience and love your Mom every day and she will get better.
Love to you both,
