Freda (Mom) had a massive ischemia stroke on the left side of her brain October 24 2016. She has had to have a cranial cap. We are in day 7 and she is still being sedated. Before sedation she did recognize her granddaughter and children. She is now being slowly taken out of sedation. It's going to be a long road. Mom is so strong and God knows what to do to help her and he will.
