Re: Post brain surgery

Sleep is one of the best things for a person who has undergone brain surgery. It lets the brain heal. When awake, the brain is busy running the mind. When asleep, the brain can concentrate on itself.

So let her sleep. When the swelling is down and she has healed, she'll slowly start spending more time awake. She'll probably have those same deficits for a while...slurred speech, blurred vision and balance problems....but they should go away or can be treated. I am doing PT right now for balance problems from 4 small strokes in 5 months. And I still nap at least once a day. And I still can't spell! But it is improving steadily.

Just give her support and be very patient.

gentle hugs............Jenny
