Sorry I have not responded earlier.Thanks for your comments.
My mum still is in hospital and it will be four weeks tonight since her stroke. She still sleeps nearly all day . Just occassionally she opens her eyes but its minutes at a time , not hours . She has spoken ,just short words or phrases relevent to what we are asking her but this only happens perhaps alternate days.
She is paralysed down her left side and continues to be 'fed' thru a tube up her nose .There is little progress and she looks alarmingly thin .
We are told physiotheraphy is not an option because she is so 'densily-asleep'.
We now have to find a private nursing home for her which can offer the 2-hourly feeds/turns and diabetes control .
Its so true that we look for every little bit of progress ,albeit a hand-grip or odd-word, and that gesture fuels our hope and wishes for the next day . Please keep in touch .
