Please Pray For Mrs Doodles by MrDoodles

I'm not normally a religious man, but for those that are, can I ask that you say a prayer for my lovely wife Bev.

Bev was rushed into Hospital last night, following a massive stroke, she's only 50.

When I spoke to the Doctor last night, she said that her body will be OK, but just not sure how much of Bev will survive.

I've spoken to the hospital this morning and she's conscious and has movement, but no speech, I've got to call back about 1 o'clock for an update and will have a ride over to the hospital then.

I'll give everyone an update later.

Well thanks for everyones kind words and good wishes.

I've just got back from the hospital and it doesn't look good.

She is conscious, but her eyes only flicker open occasionally and when they do, there is absolutely nothing behind them.

Whilst it looks like my wife laid in the hospital bed, sadly I think my wife has now left me.

She's going to have a more detailed scan on Monday and will post an update when I've got something to report.

Thank you all again for the kind words and good wishes, it means more than you'll ever know.

Very sorry you and your wife are going through this Mark and I hope she has a better outcome than you are expecting, my wife's Uncle had something similar a couple of months ago and was written off by the doctors but surprised everybody and recovered well against the odds so never give up hope

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Well just to give everyone an update, the last 24 hours, have been a bit of a roller coaster.

Ist off the mobile goes off last night and it's the hospital, telling me that she's had a seizure, it then goes off again this morning, for them to tell me that she's had a rough night and she's been very agitated and has pulled out her cannula and feeding tube.

Anyway, gets there today at about 1 o'clock to be told that she's refused to go for an MRI scan as she isn't poorly and has refused all further treatment.

Now how someone with a brain injury is allowed to do that, is beyond me, but I've now authorised the Doctor to sedate her if she refuses further treatment.

I'm now able to converse with her and after a chat and a bit of sedative, I escorted her down to the MRI scan and they managed to get enough of the scan to see what's going on.

They can now confirm that she's had a stroke (what a shock) and it affects both lobes of the brain, so can now move forward with treatment.

The stroke has affected the cognitive side of her brain, which is why she thinks that she's still at home and there's nothing wrong with her and doesn't like all these strange people in her bedroom.

She did remember that she'd been to Peterborough on Friday and the names of all our cats, so that's a plus and all arms and legs are working and no problems with vision either.

So I'm a lot happier than I was at the weekend, the old argumentative Bev is back, but she clearly needs a lot of time for recovery.

Again I'd like to thank everyone for all of their kind words and good wishes, it's helped me more than you'll know, as the weekend was a pretty dark place for me.

I will post again when there is more progress.

Well just to give everyone an up-date, what a difference a week makes!

This time last week, Bev was conscience, but incommunicable, now she is eating and drinking normally, is allowed to go to the toilet and shower herself as well!

The Doctors have finally found out what caused the stroke though, so it's good news and bad news!

Apparently, she has an irregular heartbeat, which is causing her to have low blood pressure, which caused the stroke.

She will end up on blood thinning drugs, which should raise her blood pressure, which should help prevent a recurrence of the problem.

With a bit of luck, she should be coming home this week, but what happens after that I'm not sure, but should know more this week.

Once again, I'd like to thank everyone for the kind words and good wishes, they have really helped me through a very difficult time.
