Posted by Catherine Voss on October 02, 2000 at 18:16:53:

Hello...My name is Cathie Voss...My husband had a stroke on 8/3/00 believed to be caused by high blood
pressure/blocked heart valve. He was also diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on 7/2/99. He was in the hospita
for 2 weeks and in rehab from 8/16 to 9/21. He came
home unable to walk and incontinent. We are self-employed and our social printing store was closed for
six weeks. I am feeling extremely overwhelmed! And that's putting it mildly. His personality is different, he's depressed (and so am I) and is basically non-verbal. Does anyone have any suggestions? I feel he was released to soon. Also as
a caregiver I don't feel I had enough training before
he came home.
Hope to hear from you.
Cathie
San Dimas, California
