    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    My 83year old mom had a massive left hemisphere stroke last month. Thank God she is responding much better than the doctors had predicted. She still has a trach collar but is breathing on her own. She Is able to write responses and nods her head for yes and no, and her memory seems good. She recognizes friends and family. There seems to be a slight return of sensation on her right side. She is mouthing Words. She is being seated in a chair daily. But she still spends the vast majority of her time sleeping. Is this normal? How long should this continue? Based on her current, Amazing and unpredicted recovery we are optimistic for a full recovery of communicative skills.what do you think?
