Crucial treatment for my mom in law

Update posted by Ladislav Haluska On Nov 10, 2015

Hi, this is the latest update by 10th Nov. 2015. The news are very good, my mom in law's rehabilitation progresses really well! Her movement is improving, a bit by a bit. She is able to walk short distances without an assistance, yet with difficulties, because she doesn't have so much control over the left side of her body. Still, she is becoming a little bit more skillful with her left hand. And, she seems to slowly regain her memory, which is great..

She is also going to speech therapy which seems to help quite a lot. She is now able to talk a bit, using words or even short sentences sometimes.

However, the family would really need help covering the costs. They could cover only a part of it with my support and the donations via GGF, so far sent through the site. Please, help us cover the debt.

I am updating the news.. my wife's mom has suffered a stroke, yet she survived. As doctors said, there wasn't a high change she can survive, but she did, and we need to do everything we can to take care of her, improve her health and thus prevent another stroke or heart attack which she would be unlikely to recover from.

The aneurysm was a diagnosis information the family passed to my wife. However, as she discovered, it was merely a hypothesis, and the doctor she talked to, after examining MRI, said the cause lies in her high blood pressure and high amount of cholesterol level in her body, causing chol. plaques developing in her veins. Unfortunately, even her main arteries are partially filled with the plaque. Now she's taking the appropriate medication, helping lower her chol. levels, dissolve as many clots as possible, and balance her blood pressure.

So, the surgery is not what my mom in law needs now. The best thing she can get, but we cannot afford as of now, is an intensive care in the hospital unit, where they can check everything needed, and prepare her for the rehabilitation process. It. may cost about one third of the surgery cost. Plus the medication, and the rehabilitation process which is crucial for her possible recovery.

The stroke has affected left side of my mom in law's brain. Therefore, she is impaired on the left side of her body, more or less. She can walk with a help, she cannot use her left hand. She doesn't talk, but she understands some things. So, there is a hope, and hopefully, with Your help, our dear mom can recover.

We are very, very grateful for every contribution. Thank You.

Imane and Ladislav, I hope your mum/mother-in-law has a speedy recovery. Sounds like they did not give her thrombolising medicine quickly enough. It will be a difficult time but some people improve dramatically after a stroke. My prayers are with your whole family. LoVe Pauline

I'm very sorry to hear this news Ladislav and I enjoyed meeting your mother in law when I visited your place last year. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I hope you are able to raise the money you need for this surgery. Lots of love from Australia
