Re: my moms story

Hello Rissa and welcome
I am so sorry to hear what your poor mom has been through. I understand your frustration in trying to get answers. You asked "what can you do for your mom." Be her advocate. Demand the best care, demand answers. Second opinions if necessary. There is a reason why she had the first stroke and now they must prevented any further strokes. What's important is what you do now. Caregivers have a special job and a difficult one. Its hard to watch our loved ones suffer and especially when we feel powerless. Be her advocate do what you know she would want. Demand the best and answers for her and your family. Best of luck please let us know how she is doing.
God Bless Mulchie
