    my mum is 63, she has had one big stroke before but she totally recovered from it in 2008 it affected her right side of the brain and all she had trouble with after was some right hand movements and some speech.
    since then shes been having TIA's all the time and the this week she had another big one. this time it was her right side of her brain and is still having TIAs around it continuously.
    she was "ok" when she went into the hospital could kinda walk and just lispy from her dropping lip but has just gotten progressively worse.
    she cant talk, can't move her entire left side, cant swallow. has a feeding tube, says shes hot all the time when shes cold to the touch, restless, has blood clots on both sides of her neck.
    shes started to vomit and ripped out her feeding tube..
    they gave her a 30% chance of survival

    has anyone else expierenced the same thing? i'm 27
