So glad to hear that your home, and doing well. I also had a mini stroke, mine was a week after my surgery. hope you continue to recover nicely and get the rest you need. Hope your little girl is coping, my grandaughter who is 3 1/2 was very leary of my bald head and big scar, she acted out some because I wasn't able to to do things that i usually did, with her, but it soon worked out. Hope to hear from you soon. Carol.
Hi everyone!! It has been 4 weeks today and I am doing great!!! I go to my follow up appointment with my surgeon and for a ct scan on Monday. I rarely take a nap during the day and I have been out and about to target, the grocery store, chili’s, and to get a pedicure( that made me feel a little prettier ) and also back and forth to go with to take my daughter to preschool!!! Considering all the set backs and time frame I feel like I am doing outstanding, give me another month and I hope to be really well!! Three days after surgery I started slurring my words, I didn’t know my husband, I called him daddy, called my dad daddy, called my mom mommy, when asked the date I kept saying November 10th which is the daylittle sister died ( that is when everyone lost it), I didn’t even know what a pen was!!! Needless to say I really don’t even remember much from Monday night till real early Wednesday morning! All of a sudden they asked we the date ( and no one had been in and changed it from the day before) and I said wait a minute it isn’t Tuesday, it is Wednesday!! At that moment they knew I was coming back!! The weird thing is that they did 2 ct scans and mra and could only find a pin point dot of blood on my brain… They said I must of had a stroke and they also recorded a very mild seizure that no one even visually noticed! It was all very terrifying on my family but then a came right back… Thank you God!! I believe this is a prime example of his power, he is definately in control!!! The neurosurgery team have no doubt I will be fine!! They said this happens in about 10% of cases but I don’t think they were prepared for it to happen to me. Also my surgery was only supposed to be only 4-5 hours and it ended up being 10+! My surgeon came out and told my family that it was 3 mm like they thought but one side was completely transparent and ready to rupture at any moment and I made the right decision! My docs and nurses were great and I am soooo thankful, not only for them, but all of you!! I am going to contact the foundation and organize an annual fundraiser!! I am here for all of you whenever you need me, day or night!!
My number is 219-■■■■■■■■! Be brave, trust God, see the good even in the worst situations!!
Jennifer,So glad your doing so well, I know you were so frightened… I was worried for you. Just wonderful to hear from you. Take care and keep us updated. Carol…
Hi Carol, I can’t believe you had a stroke too, if you don’t mind me asking what happen?? How are you feeling?? My daughter is great… They didn’t shave my head, the actually left a thin strip of hair in front, then shaved the line behind it. I had to change the side I part on but you can’t even see it… I can’t wait to cover my gray hair and get it cut though but it is the least of my worries!! I am glad you are well too, I would live to hear your story as well!! Keeping you and everyone dealing with this in my prayers!!
