Friend's Stroke: flickers of hope
Yesterday evening A half-opened his eye on the non-stroke side! I was there.
I wasn't up to getting out today, but it's reported that he opened *both* eyes and seems to be somewhat aware and responsive.
I've followed other young people's slow, difficult recoveries in my online acquaintances, so this gives me hope, though also a dread of how hard it will be. (Different to mother's series of strokes, getting worse & worse. Also seen in other older people.) But there are examples of lack of recovery too.
Thinking/hoping this intensive care is Medicare-covered. Further treatment and rehabilitation, dunno.
