Today .. my poor Ma had a mini fit .. an occurrence for people with strokes - it doesn't happen too often, as she's on medication - but I'm pleased I was with her. She doesn't appear to have any pain .. but can feel it - it affects her eyes/ eyelids & the left side of her face; this time she didn't have a flush - so didn't need cold flannels to cool her off.
Once I'd established she was ok, despite her face felt a bit funny, she drifted off to sleep; I came back after a couple of hours & she vaguely came too .. sufficiently to say she was alright - tired but ok. Again I left & returned 2 - 3 hours later.
She was still tired (understandably) .. but we had a brief chat .. & she can still see & communicate (a relief) and asked me about various things - some sensible .. some a bit off the wall - but 'go with flow' ... it makes no difference to me; then I reconfirmed she was ok - but she then shifted to how I was .. had I had enough sleep? was I over my jet lag? don't worry about her fit - she feels ok "it wasn't serious" - the staff will take care of her .. my mother is a tower of strength .. she just wants to get on with life .. not leave it .. a great attribute - don't you think?
