My mother in law who is 95 yrs old had a stroke last Tuesday 23rd Dec, 08. She has lost sight in her right eye and most of her right side doesn't work. Since the stroke she has been sleeping most of the time. When she first had the stroke she would open and close her eyes. Two days after the stroke she now doesn't open her eyes and sleeps lots. CT scan showed she had a blood clot.
Mum has always been a very independant lady, she only gave up driving last year. If she could see herself now, I know she would want to go home to be with the Lord Jesus and dad who passed away 10 yrs ago. We have just found out mum now has an infection.
I have no doubt at all the Lord can heal her. Our prayer is that God's will, will be done.
I know stroke victims are all different, my question is how long does it take for a person to respond after a stroke, if they sleep alot and is not responsive is there a danger that everythg will start to shut down?
