For those of you who have not heard, My wife, Linda, seems to have had two strokes since Wed. 8/19/09. She is in intensive care after going through surgery to remove blockage from her left corotid artery, after which she seems to have lost the use of her right side extremities. The doctors say we should wait for 24 hours to see if her movement comes back, but at this time she has lost the sight in her left eye and right arm and leg.

Any thoughts and/or prayers to whatever dietiesyou see fit would be most appreceated at this time.

Thank you,
Stephen R. Lynch Sr.:(:confused::mad:

I'll keep you both in my thoughts, Warlord. Sometimes the damage really is only short-term and can resolve in a few days or weeks. Hang in there.

My grandmother went from near total side paralysis to a full recovery in a month. Keep your chin up - because you never know.

Quick update - Linda, while not able to wake up for more than a second or 2, has had reflex reaction in her extremities, but only slightly. She is still in ICU, and will most likely stay in there until next week. She opened her eyes for a moment tonight while I was there, and looked likee she was going to cry, closed her eyes and went comatose again. I can't help thinking that going after this clot in the first place wass not such a good idea, since the massive stroke happened while she was in surgery. :doh::(:mad:

Feels like I am in a 6 foot ball of jello right now.

Talked to the neurologist on Sat. Also found out all she can do is grunt and moan ( no speech ).

I'll tell you now, they said that it was a good thing that, even though she had a stroke during surgery, it was a good thing that the artery got cleaned, because if she had the stroke before, they would not have touched the artery now.

I and my family thank you for all your prayers, and to know that all my new friends out there are more than just lip service.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife as well. Having a health-challenged wife myself, I know how gut-wrenching it can be.

Best of prayers. Keep us in the loop.

Our prayers are with you and your wife. May everything return to normal in a few weeks, there are times when the cure does not do what it is suppose to. Sorry that it has happened.

Warlord, don't be doubting your decision to go after that clot, despite what happened in surgery. That's a more-than-reasonable choice to make - if she'd thrown the clot, she could have ended up in exactly the same situation, and then you'd be saying, "Why didn't we opt for surgery before this happened?" Everything happens for a reason and when it's supposed to - sometimes we don't know that reason right away, but you gotta trust that you did the right thing and the reasoning will become clear later on.

You hang in there - we're all here for you and your wife.
