User :   Need your opinion
On 3rd June 2008 my mother had a thalamic bleeding on right side basal. She is right now hospitalised & is currently in ICU since admitted.
The currents observation we have are as follows
1. She is partially conscious. You can say 90% unconscious.
2. When awake she is able to listen & speak(a bit).
3. She is able to move paralytic affected leg & hands by her own.
4. Today doctor informed that there are symptoms of aspiration pneumonia.
If we talk about the past history she never had a complaint of any hypertension or blood pressure issue or neither she is a diabetic patient though the blood sugar count was 197 when checked in the hospital.
On 3rd June 2008 till morning eight thirty she was absolutely fine & then suddently she started vomiting & we could see that she was not able to lift the left side of her body. Immediately she was hospitalised.
