    Understanding strokes

    While I have never had one, my life has been deeply effected by them. My other half is signifigantly older than me and an above the knee amputee, for close to twenty years.

    She was fully independent before her stroke in Sep. 2017. Hers happened in her sleep, upon awakening I knew there was a problem and called EMTs. She has made a great deal of recovery, but is no longer independent. I must help her transfer from the wheelchair to couch, bed, toilet, etc as she never regained much strength on her left side.

    Fortunately, her left leg is the missing one and she can bear weight on the right (as I lift and hold her)

    Sunday night, one of my landlords live in aids, had a severe stroke sitting on the porch, right after everyone went to bed. The poor guy laid on the concrete, outdoors about ten hours before he was found at 8:30 AM. He is still on a ventilator in the ICU.

    I had just retired to my mother in laws unit, in the back yard, after sitting and drinking a beer with him. I should of grabbed another and maybe I would of been there...I know, I cant know everything. It was bad, he was disoriented and could only move his right arm.

    I realize most here will know the basics of stroke but I post this to urge you all to be aware and on watch. It can happen out of the blue. Time to diagnoses and treatment makes a world of difference.

    Please take the time to read the info at this link:

    Significant progress has been made in the treatment of strokes, but imminent attention is necessary......

    Thanks for "heads-up" and reminder, Kris.

    I feel terrible for "Jimmy" I just wish I had grabbed another beer and went back onto the porch. I know I cant be all knowing and on every scene, but damn. It likely happened minutes after I went around back. He also had bleeding on the brain where he evidently struck his head falling.

    He is only 53. He had super high blood pressure, like 230 over 140. He even had the landlords nurses check his BP and tell him he was a "walking stroke"

    Everyone told him, go to the Dr. Easy fix, get medication but he blew it all off. I feel so terrible for him, heartsick. Made all the more worse, by it's preventable nature.

    He is still in the ICU, they stopped the brain bleed and have the blood pressure, close to normal.

    He's done for.....

    I've read your posts about him before. Does it really suck when a person gets what they deserve?

    That's a rather cold reply. No one deserves that, he is not a bad person.

    True - that was a cold reply.

    Another lesson here is not to be a cold hearted asshole. Someone "demonstrated" something, and boy did they. Takes a real prick to make such a statement in such a time.
    @Liberty Monkey not you.
