Re: Mom just had some mini strokes - terrified daughter needing advice!
I join Mulchie in welcoming you to this special place. I am also very sad for all you are going through during this waiting phase.
Although each stroke is different, there are many parts of stroke that are very similar as well. I know when I was in my state of unconsciousness, I remember many parts of it. I was aware of my family being around me, and the nurses chatting and joking. I could not respond at all. But I did have some awareness, so I also encourage you to talk to her, rub her hands and legs and feet. Stimulate her gently and provide her as much comfort as you can.
At the same time, get yourself enough rest while she is in the hands of the hospital, as you will need to be strong in the weeks and months ahead. Keep yourself well hydrated, and well fed. Stroke recovery is a long process, but one filled with potential.
Please feel free to continue to post your feelings and questions. WE are here to help, and know the many aspects of recovery like no others do.
Waiting for answers seems like forever, but each day will likely have some new information for you. With your mothers other health issues, these can complicate any diagnosis, but please be patient.
Do you have any other family that can help you with the hospital visits. Reach out to anyone you can trust to comfort you during this difficult time.
Be well, and let us know anything new,..
