Road to Recovery
Strokes might be called a silent killer. Strokes must be hard to recognize in some instances. Even medical professionals assessing Mom in the emergency room did not recognize her stroke and sent her home with a prescription for a nausea medication on Christmas Eve. My Mother's best friend, a retired registered nurse did not realize she had a stroke in taking her to emergency with me Christmas Day. Yet, Mom sustained a major stroke on the right side of her brain. Her will to fight to recover is astounding. She is awe-inspiring with her courage and tenacity. We still need and are thankful for your prayers.
