As said in the other thread, hope you get better soon, you probably don't realise quite how much we all appreciate your constant hard work. On that note, while you're laid up, who do we complain to and send solicitors' letters to?

Siouxie is doing hard time here, my sister just went through this and it meant a couple of weeks of heparin iv before surgery was possible, plus all the bloodwork. Admission to release was about 2 months, got home a week ago.

Just seen this Siouxie, what a shocker. It's so easy to take one's health for granted isn't it. Hope you are on your way to a good recovery.

OH MY..... I have only just seen this thread!

I love you people.. seriously.. such an outpouring of love, caring thoughts and wishes.. it means so much to me, you have no idea.

I'm really doing ok, though still at high risk of another stroke or a heart attack. I'm seeing the vascular surgeon on Tuesday to determine whether surgery is even a consideration - the risk of brain bleed, stroke or heart attack during the operation is very high and they have to weigh up risk factors versus potential gains.

I feel blessed and very lucky that I have all my faculties and am still able bodied. The hospital told me that with the massive amount of brain damage I have it's astounding that I am still able to think, speak, walk. Most people don't. For an idea of the area, put the heel of your hand (the bony bit nearest your wrist) to the top of your forehead where it meets the top of your head near your right temple. Extend your hand and fingers backwards, parallel to your ear, on the right side of you head. That's the extent of my stroke area (or basically, from a midline of the skull to 2 inches above the ear and extending from front to back, the whole of the right hand side. I am blessed to be whole and alive. I was saved by less than 1/4 of an inch from being completely incapacitated, rendered mute, blind and deaf and without use of any limb. I am so thankful... they have never seen anyone with the amount of brain damage I have be able to still function and communicate and pass all cognitive tests and be sound of mind and body. All I have is some loss of sensation on the skin of my left arm and hand, but I can feel needles, lol!

The next few months will be a bit stressful but I feel good in myself now and am determined that I am not going to be one of the statistics, if there is anything I can do about it!. I am on a high protein, low carb/low fat/low sodium food regime; light exercise (nothing that can raise the blood pressure) and after smoking for (not going to say a number, it would be a giveaway of my age rofl!) many years, am now a proud non smoker (though that's been hard too). I'm not on blood thinners as there is too much risk of the huge haematoma in my brain bleeding (thankfully, it's flattening out! At one point they thought they would have to drill into my skull to release the pressure); but am taking Prevastatin to try to stabilise the soft plaque, a low dose blood pressure pill for if it raises dramatically and an ASA 81mg aspirin a day.

I can truly embrace the saying "any day that you wake up is a good day" - and am just so thankful.

Thank you ALL for your wonderful posts, each one filled with such caring sentiment... I truly appreciate each and every one of you.
