About two weeks ago my grandfather had a stroke, he was making a cup of tea when he forgot everything, even who my Grandmother was.
My grandmother took him straight to hospital, and he stayed there for a week. The stupid thing is, it took 5 bloody days for the damn doctors to
realize he had a stroke.
I'm sure everyone knows that the margin of error with a stroke is an hour, after which the effects become permanent. Luckily for us, the stroke was
on the left side of the brain, the doctors said that if it was on the right he would have died.
If it takes that long to figure out it was a stroke, why take anyone to the hospital?
Granddad has his memory back, and has been taken off the chemo for a while so he can recover (he also has stomach cancer)
