Uh OH!

Mom's sister had a stroke last night. Doesn't seem to be as bad as Mom's was as there is no evidence of bleeding in the brain. Doc thinks it may have been an embolic stroke which originates in the heart and moves to block an artery to the brain, but does not go into the brain. She is in ICU today. I told Mom last night, but I had to because her phone kept ringing, so she knew something was going on. She was able to sleep after I told her that it wasn't as bad as they had first thought. She has right side weakness, but is not talking yet.

Oh, no, I am glad they got to see each other before it happened.
I hope she will do well with therapy...they usually start it RIGHT AWAY.
Did they use the clot busting drug within the 3 hour time frame?
Does she live close to you all?

She has the same doctor that treated Mom. He saved her life, so I'm sure he did all the right things.
