Topic: Update on mom's stroke
Sunday night my mom had a stroke, it affected her swallowing and right side of body. She was still able to move leg and arm but not with any strength. Since then we have experienced the loudest gurgle, I have ever heard, it just breaks my heart. I am upset and mad, I just could not handle it. The nurse came this morning and used a machine to try and suck some of the secreations with little sucess. She has also been very aggitated and hard to control pain and aggitation. We rolled her over more to one side, and got everything under control. Now I believe she is in a coma. This has been an extremely difficult and heart wrenching.
Has anyone ever experienced this and what will happen next. Her vitals dropped this morning, but then came back up and she is warm again also. The nurses's have never seen anything like it.
