Our mom, Suzanne, who is 71 had a stroke
on the back of her head, on the brain stem
on May 23rd 2008. All of her memory and the part of her brain that makes her who she is, is all there. Thank god!
Suzanne was diagnosed with a stroke 7 1/2 hours after being rushed to the emergency room. My family and I found this a bit odd since she had every symptom of having a stroke.
And we all know that it is vital to get help and diagnosed as soon as possible, when a person apperes to have had a stroke.
