I wanted to reach out as my poor mum has now been in hospital for over 4 weeks after a huge stroke thats left her paralysed on the left side.
She is still able to hold a conversation but cannot eat yet so has a feeding tube.
Speaking with the consultant today he said prepare for the worst :( Survival rate is 60%)
She's had a couple of infections (chest & hand) but is being given anti biotics which has made the swelling go down in her hand. So seems to be having an effect.
But its meant that seems to have gone backwards.
Two days ago she was able to have some yogurt and a little water without laughing (so gag reflexes are working)
I guess I just want to offload, not sure what to do really.
