Dad took Mom into Swan River Hospital July 29 around 11:00 pm. She was feeling weak and had some numbness on her left side. She needed a wheelchair by the time she got to the hospital. They suspected stroke but were unsure. The signs were unclear to begin with but it was obvious within a couple of hours after arriving at the hospital that she had indeed had some kind of stroke. They kept her in overnight and she was transferred by ambulance to Dauphin. Her CT scan showed a “brain bleed” stroke (which is less common than a “blockage” stroke) so she was transferred to Winnipeg. We are waiting to hear more from the doctor. They did a second scan and found little change. At this point no surgery needed. They will be monitoring her high blood pressure.
