My mother is 83 and up until February 24, 2011 she was active and never had any health related issues. She would brag how the only time she was ever in a hospital was to give birth. My mother has high blood pressure and is a diabetic. On the 24th she suffered a massive brain stem stroke. According to the neurologist and the GP, both sides of the brain stem was affected. Many people have said that theses stroke victims usually do not last more than 30 days. Tomorrow will be a month. Her vitals are good. Heart rate 60, BP 108/54 and running a low grade fever. We are praying she comes out of this but the doctors all have no hope. Has anyone gone through this and had a positive result? The doctors are saying all movements that she is doing are involuntary. She has never regained consciousness. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
