Stroke update 3
Three weeks from the stroke and the doctors are still no closer to finding out what caused it. Tuesday after a good day with physios I had a seizure, which could just be part of the healing process, it isn’t uncommon after a head injury to have a fit. It lasted 2mins I came out of it without medical intervention and didn’t lose consciousness, at least I don’t think I did, I remember the questions and them using the hoist to put me into bed.
I think I have surprised the physios. When they left on the Friday I still couldn’t lift my foot then by Monday I could walk holding a hand. I now just need supervision, but it means I can walk to the toilet and have a shower, which is always a bonus.
Friday just gone I had a home assessment which meant that instead of physiotherapy at the hospital they took me home in a taxi and watched me get around at home, get on and off the bed, toilet and sofas. I also made Simon a cup of coffee, there wasn’t time for me to make and drink my own hot drink. I managed the stairs ‘slowly’ and petted the cats.
Hopefully these are the first steps to getting me home.
