I am sorry if my question sounds a little odd, but its more for comfort, my gran had a stroke last wednesday, we had her taken straight to hospital, up until friday she could still talk a bit, since then she has had 3 major strokes in hospital (what the doctors say) and is just basically laying there, when we talk to her she can still squeeze our hand when we ask her too, she can open her eyes and mouth slightly and when you ask her a question she can groan to us.
As she is 89 years old the doctors have said her brain is that badly damaged there is not any chance of recovery and if she has another stroke its likely to finish her off.
The reason I am asking this question is that I would like to know from people that have suffered a stroke and are now recovering and moving around, whether my gran will be in any pain, of course its an question I only want to hear the answer "No", but it would be reassuring to hear and know how se might be feeling and thinking, its horrible seeing her like this as she has always been an independent lady, she still lived by herself and could cook a meal for you up until last wednesday, so to see her in hospital have nurses cleaning her is very upsetting.
I know its a fact that all life eventually comes to an end and my gran has had a good life, 89 years old with no illnesses until now, she has always had family around here, she even went on holiday to Spain last month with my mum and dad but it always comes as a shock.
I won't go on but would appreciate to hear from anyone who knows and has experienced a stroke and are happy to share anything with me that may make my family take some comfort in knowing.
As I say, its a strange time for me as not used to anyone close to me getting ill so I am sorry if my question seems inapproriate and sorry if it has offended anyone
Thank you in advance
