After a major stroke 5 days ago, my mom of 70 yrs sleeps all the time. Only right hand & arm paralyzed... she has feeling in leg and toes.
(She also has Alzheimer's dementia and severe osteoporosis in back, hips, knees, all over)
She does not respond when talked to. Only on the first and 2nd day. She now doesn't even open her eyes.
She at first took fluids and ensure. For the first 2 days and from day 3, she doesn't open her eyes, and doesn't eat or drink at all. How can we get her to take fluids? Not to dehydrate...?
According to me her eyes are dilated. We shine a light in and it just stares. When they were open at first it seems that they look right through you...
We are from South Africa. She does not have medical aid. Not in hospital.
