Re: Left side paralysis and a nursing home fate
20 years, that's music to anyone's ears. It will be 2 for me this Dec. All my energy every day goes into averting another.
The costs are completely through the roof. That's another thing I intend to avoid, though I have yet to figure out how. The cost for my sibling was over 1 mil. Just thinking about this is liable to give me another stroke. There was this case of Tony Nicklinson in the UK. Five long years of torment. For my sibling it was four years. Stroke need not be fatal for a long time. And stroke is, I think, such a mystery because it is the brain.
Now I'll try and think of something cheery: we may live in each moment as perhaps never before taking nothing for granted.
