Not sure if this is where I can introduce myself to everyone in the group but here it goes. My name is Brenda and my mother had an aneurysm on November 24, 2015. She's currently in a rehabilitation facility. The biggest hurdles we are trying to deal with is her memory. Her short term memory seems to be shot and she hallucinates sometimes. We aren't sure if it's the seizure medication or just the after effects of having an aneurysm. I would love to hear if this is normal and if this passes. Also if anyone knows of any resources I could use to help my mother get back to normal that would be great. Thank you!
FYI: my mom is 66 years old and was extremely active. We live in South Florida. She never smoked or drank. Never was hospitalized. This aneurysm was the first time she has ever been hospitalized. She also can use her hands and legs. She is now getting therapy to walk unassisted again since she was hospitalized for 3 weeks.
