Guest Thank you all!@Jen I don't know if the shot is new or not. I just know my grandma didn't get hers in time back in 2005 and that if you get it whtiin 30 minutes of the stroke it's ideal, but whtiin 3 hours your chances of recovery are much better than if you don't get it in time.BTW...my grandpa is going home today!!! He has to wear a heart monitor for 30 days, but he's going home!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi there! I just want to know how is your grandma now? Did she had a brain surgery and how much blood was in her brain? Actually I'm now grieving with my grandma's lost last sat. She had a stroke last wednesday and we brought her to the hospital after 5hrs after the attack. We didn't know that she had an attacked already that's why it took sometime before we noticed something is wrong with my grandma. She had 3days in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and the doctors told us before that she had 170ml of blood in her brain and cause so much pain for her. The doctor also told us that they can't do operation since of the age factor. I really miss her so much.....:'(

The same thing has happened to my Grandma age 87. She is frail but is a very strong woman when she needs to be.
How did your Grandma get on? I hope she is OK If you have any advice I would appreciate it

I am a stroke survivor (hemorragic) I had it in February 2010 and also, this is my first post here in this forum (and I like this place BTW!)

I can tell you that the best thing you can do for her is support, the Drs. will take care of her medical condition, but believe me, just by talking to her, and visit her often she will be stronger every day. Another piece of advice I can give you is to get some support for yourself, this place is a great source of help, looks like this place have very nice people (I found it today and I am happy), also there are groups out there to support caregivers.

I wish you and your grandma the very best, "Stroke is no a "Joke! and is hard to deal with it.

I have to say that I'm lucky because my grandma had a stroke like a year and 4 months ago, she recovered almost within a week, in that time my grandma had 86 years old. Now almost a week ago she had another brain stroke she's still in the hospital, yesterday she had a surgery to place a stomach catheter because she can't swallow even water.
She can't stand up or even barely move, and speak, she only move her hands, and make some kind of sign language.
I'm desperate I don't know how to help her, or I don't know if i can get some tips or help from you guys, I know my grandma is an old person, but she's really strong I know she can beat the effects of the brain stroke...
