My sister in law, Andrea (everyone calls her Andi) suffered a stroke in mid August. Unfortunately, it wasn’t diagnosed correctly for two weeks, delaying treatment.
We’re currently waiting for results from a battery of autoimmune tests that were run once the stroke was correctly diagnosed, and still don’t know what the cause was. Those tests are extremely expensive, and we’re unsure what the ultimate cost will be right now. What do know is that she’s lost strength and mobility in her left arm and leg. She’s facing a year to 18 months of physical therapy to get back to full function.
Andi is an artistic soul. She creates beautiful metal artwork for their business, and she plays the guitar in her free time with her mother to relax. She says that’s the hardest thing about this whole situation- she can’t chord, and hasn’t been able to play the guitar since it happened.
We’re estimating the costs of her physical therapy right now, and waiting for results on the tests, and to see if more tests are necessary.
