Stressed out

My mother had a stroke last June exactly one month after her 59th birthday. At the time, I had just had a baby, and lived 5 hours away. My family members talked about me and said I didn't care about my mother. That all I cared about was my baby. I had no job and very little money. Even though they knew that, not one of them offered me a dime to come home. After leaving the hospital, my mom went to rehab. Her insurance company stopped paying for her care after 3 months because they felt she… Continue

Then they said we have met the Medicare max. A month ago at therapy he was walking outside with therapist, in the grass without his cane. Now he can hardly walk from the trailer…

A time of change

My husband of 41 yrs had a stroke late in January. Working 3rd shift woke to go to work. He said his hand was asleep and left for work. The next morning he came in and said his entire R side was numb and tingly. Went to ER and was told that he had had a stroke. We were in the hospital for 2 days and went home. The next day we went to church to see our oldest daughter and youngest grandson be baptized. During the service Sam had another stroke. Had to call an ambulance this time. Luckily there… Continue

My name is Darryl Brown.  My wife of 44 just had a stroke in November.  Left brain stroke with aprxia. So far every Dr weve seen has said the same thing. That they are amazed at the progress she has made considering how strong the stoke was. So In the big picture, she is doing very well. However, they say we only have 12 months from the date or the stroke (Nov 20, 2014), for the "learning again process" to happen at a reletively quick pace. At that point it slows down considerably. If she is…
