If you had read this post you will know that my grandma’s health has not been pretty good lately.
Last Saturday, we brought grandma to Assunta Hospital for a thorough checkup. She had a CT scan done. Doctor confirmed that grandma is going through a mild stroke. There’s a rupture at her lower left brain. At that moment, my world came tumbling down but I tried to be strong.
I felt so stupid you know… for not being sensitive about this issue. She is having a stroke and yet nobody realised it. Thank God it’s not too late. Her left hand numbness is still there. She also has some numbness at the left back (near backside) and at the sole of her left foot. She is doing some light exercise on her legs and fingers from time to time. I believe it will take some times to heal or maybe the numbness feeling will never fully recover. I don’t know.
A few weeks back grandma had a full body checkup and that day the doctor told us that her checkup results came up all fine except that she has a very high cholesterol level. Doctor advised her to reduce intake of oily and salty food. Eat more veggie and fruits.
We will see the doctor again in 2 weeks time.
Grandma is a strong woman. She had endured many hardships during her younger days and had managed to fight them all. Right now, the best medicine for her is the medicine provided by the doctor and our love and support.
Anyone who had gone/are going through this ordeal, please share your story with all of us.
p/s: Thanks Kleio. Many hugs.
