    My Mom (Age 52) Was Admitted to the Hospital Aug 26, 2017. She experienced a Hemorrhagic Stroke on Her Left Brain causing her Right side of the Body to Be Paralyzed and her speech was affected as well (Aphasia ).
    We spent 3 weeks in the ICU.

    Counting the days from her Operation (Aug 27,2017),
    It’s like 1 Month and 10 days (40 days) now.

    For her progress:
    1. She can now sit in balance with both her hands on her lap.
    2. When she tries to speak, there’s a sound already. Louder sound when she cries.
    3. She recognizes all of us and smiles a lot.
    4. Since her speech was affected, I personally taught her to nod in case she agrees with my question for better communication. Ex., "Change Diaper?, or Turn lights Off? and Wheelchair?"
    5. Yes, from No. 4, she wants to sit on wheelchair and NOT lay all the time.
    6. She sings, "la-la-la" as she can already stick her tongue out. ( I downloaded videos for aphasia recovery)
    7. She can swallow Soft Food like blended rice and juices. Her favorite, Jelly Ace!
    8. She has minimal bed sores as she moves a lot in bed so we don’t have to turn her body to the right – Flat -Turn Left and Cycle every hour.

    Hoping to hear your comments and tips like supplements and what to avoid and etc.
    Thank you guys! I’ll try to update her after a month or so.

    I am 34 years old, a wife to Bakers and mummy to Ava and George. I was a lawyer but have been a stay at home mum for nearly nine years now, which is slightly scary. I have loved it and I would count it as a job because I have worked harder at home than I ever did anywhere else. What happened to me? I was going to say that I have recently become disabled. It’s actually five years ago, now so it isn’t that recent, but it still only feels like yesterday that I felt I had a burst AVM. A lot of other people have explained it a lot better, so I am not even going to attempt if you want to know more type ‘Arteriovenous Malformation’ into any Internet search engine. In search for a better health I came across people talking of Dr. Adebola on the internet, on how he uses herbs to treat so many chronic diseases, I was reluctant to give his herbal formula a try. At first it was like a miracle to me and my loved ones, I later realized that it was the miracle powers in his herbs that help my brain cells to function normal, after 5 years I now have my health in order, I now do everything I couldn’t do while I was disabled, am so grateful to God and Dr Adebola, I can’t thank him enough so I pray his nature’s knowledge be multiplied to help reach out to more people in need of a stable health.
    I want people to think about the HEALING powers in nature’s herbs, If you have already had a stroke then I appreciate this might be too late but carers and loved ones should think about this in case something similar happens or had happened to them!
    Reach out to Dr. Adebola, message him via email dr.adebola12@yahoo.com, or whatsapp via: +19292018600
    Best of luck.

    my friend knows how you feel she has an hard time expressing herself.

  15. S B on August 29, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    Wowwwwwww…… brings back horrible memories as I had a brain hemorrhage myself at age 37 while I was 5 months pregnant with my second child…… it’s been almost 2/5 years since then. I still consider myself a lucky lucky person that I have survived even though I’m still suffering from somewhat minor residues.
    I was completely a healthy person but one night things changed so much. It was a vein rupture type not clotting type of stroke ….. and until now there is no answer to why it happened.
    I’m just so glad that I get to be around for my children. 🙏🙏🙏
