Dad recovery on-going treatment

Update posted by Risma Cristanty On Oct 10, 2013

 

UPDATE as per 10.10.2013: It is been so long I have now needed to let you know that dad is now like a normal person but he is experiencing MEMORY LOSS. As we all know, many people experience memory problems after a stroke. In particular, he has a stroke in the right hemisphere of his brain commonly have problems paying attention. He is experiencing verbal, visual, informational and vascular dementia.

 

His verbal memory loss is affecting his memory of names and stories.

 

 

His visual memory loss is affecting his memory of shapes, faces, etc. There is one time when our uncle visited dad and they had a long chat. But suddenly dad asked my elder brother to give our uncle a call. Actually our uncle is sitting right in front of him. Uncle cellphone is ringing and he picked up his phone. Dad asked “where are you?” Uncle said “I am right in front of you right now. Don’t you remember?” Dad said, “Ahh.. you are not my brother. Who are you?”

 

 

His informational memory loss is affecting his memory of information and skills or trouble learning new things. And lastly his vascular dementia memory loss is affecting a greater and more general decline in thinking ability.

 

 

 

Therefore, the cure is not a matter of one specific medication but in fact TIME. He needs time to heal his memory loss.

Dad is still in the hospital. He is recovering very well. He is now under physiotherapy. He is now learing to sit as currently he is not able to sit properly. We need to tie his body to the chair so he won't slip down. He is also able to say a word like Hello but still unable to obey-command. We are still unsure why he is not able to focus. What I meant by focus is when he sees us he is not completely seeing us. His eyes are not focus on us. He is also unable to recognise us.

So friends and families, please do keep him in your prayer and please spread the word so everyone can pray for him.

We are greatly appreciate all the love and support from all of you.

Thanks and God bless!

Dad had done the tracheostomy in order for him to breath easily and to avoid infection in his trachea. He is now able to breath on his own but still need the nurse to clean the tubes.  So he is now in HDU ward instead of in ICU ward. As he still needs stoma care, the doctors are not confident to move my dad to a normal ward. So, please keep my dad in your prayer. Thanks and God bless!
