Hi All My first blog, YAY :Clap-Hands:
This is only my 3rd visit to this site, and I thank you all, I was becoming sooo very desperate to believe I was not alone on this journey, I have learned so much and cannot describe how happy I am knowing Iam not alone, I am still muddling my way around to add pics etc, but I will get there!!!!!!!!
I am blessed to have such wonderful support from my partner and family, my 2 boys now 16 and 18 and my mum,dad and sisters stayed with me every day of my3 mths of hospital, my boys live 4000klms away and were home for christmas, they were all there to help me and support me through my recovery,it was so very helpful for me :laughbounce:
When I awoke- I stroked in my sleep my youngest boy came in to pick me up from the floor and said "mum are you a ninny or something?" god love him, he was so frightened, as I looked ghastly with my left side of my face drooped,what came out of my mouth was SLURRRRRRRRRRR, and I just wanted to get to the loo, they called the ambulance immediately much to me trying to argue I was OK in between vomiting, Ambo's took me to the local hosp, was then transferred to the regional hosp, and 24 hrs later to Sydney to Concord Stroke unit - still violently vomiting with all the family in toe including my 97 yrold grannie who refused to leave me, she passed on in Mar this year, she was so very understanding of my plight as she wasn't very mobile either and was struggling to hold on to her independence
I wont ramble too much more Kris from Oz
till next time, I'm looking forward to getting to know you all :cheer:
