Health News from SP


Obviously I spread the word about strokes since my husband had a serious onein 2006. He survived but is quite disabled. He was only 59 then.


His stroke was a bleed so clot busting meds would not have helped him. No one know that till medical treatment is started.

I hope this article helps someone prevent disabilities from a stroke.

    Great advice, thanks for sharing. I also want to encourage people to GO TO THE E.R. when feeling signs of a heart attack. My good friend waited too long when he had chest pain and trouble breathing, because he thought it could be heartburn,

    Chris, I'm so sorry that stroke happened to your DH. Unfortunately my female cousin had a really bad stroke when she was in her early 40s. So, now she is very disabled and recently moved into an assisted living studio apartment. She's much happier now and has started to make new friends and doesn't have to worry so much about things she's unable to do. She's a couple of years older than I am so quite frankly it ruined her healthy life. She was fit and trim and had no bad vices, etc. Strokes are something that unfortunately run in the family. I'm blessed to be 67 yo but glad medical knowledge is better now than it was. Thank you for sharing this good article. I know it's hard being your DH caretaker. I assume he is living there with you now or maybe he's being taken care of at an Assisted Living Home? Take good care of yourself. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My at age 37 6 massive in 1984 [no known cause ]
30 year stroke survivor waiting for the shoe to drop again.
There are so many aids that help me get by.
I'm happy that it was not in 1884 they had no helps medical or daily aids.
Do your DH a favor and encourage him to 'do' anything
His favorite music will help the words to form and flow easier.
I laugh when folks tell me to exercise more,
Hey,walking just a few steps a real effort
Best wishes to the fella
Care givers ROCK
