My mom finally laid down for a cat scan. It showed she has had a small stroke, my dad and I were pretty sure that would be the case. Although now that it is confirmed, I have mixed feelings. Relief and sadness. I don't want there to be anything wrong with her, but I am glad we now know something concrete, rather than guessing. Also who knows a lot about strokes. Will stroke patients start to show signs of dementia or is the dementia type symptoms something completely different?
