Re: Received very bad news this morning!

They removed the breathing tube on Monday so she's breathing on her own since then & they stopped her sedation as well, and although she has opened her eyes and looked around for a minute here & there she still isn't quite responding to anything yet.

Re: Received very bad news this morning!

*BIIIIG NEWS!* My brother has reported that not only is she breathing on her own without any tubes in her for the 3rd day, but last night while he sat bedside reading a magazine she woke up and yelled out "helloooo", and he then dropped the magazine and went straight to her and she looked at him for about 30 seconds - smiled and mumbled something - and then went back to sleep!!

Re: Received very bad news this morning!

*Even bigger news!!* She has now been moved into the "stroke rehab wing" and out of ICU after spending 12 days there, and she no longer has machines hooked upto her except for a few monitors and an IV feeder. Today it was also reported that she spent 10 minutes watching tv and seemed to comprehend what she was watching.

Great news.

Re: Received very bad news this morning!

The doctors have all agreed that a big part in anyone's recovery is how much fight they have in them and the desire to live, and so far it's looking like she has a lot of that in her!

Re: Received very bad news this morning!

After blurting out "hellooo" 3 days ago she has not spoken since but acts like she wants to, and the doctors told my brother that this is probably the only word she's able to form right now, and that she will probably need intense therapy to be able to talk again and form sentences.

Not only did she speak a few words yesterday like her name, my brother's name, and clearly said what hospital she is in, but she also has been sitting up and watching tv for about 15-20 minutes a day!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Received very bad news this morning!

After these events sometimes there is some loss of function while the brain basically rewires itself. Anyway she is out of the worse of it. I'm very happy for you and your family Cee Paul.
