This is the story of how my mother went from herself to a completely different person in seconds
I was woken by my father yelling my mother fell and could not stand. Rushing to her aid I knew right away...she was having a stroke. She did her rehab and came home, but my mom was not my mom anymore, well not the mother I have known. The depression from the stroke took its toll, my mother passed at the young age of 59. I miss her tremendously everyday. I want to raise awareness so other families do not have to feel what my mom and my family felt emotionally for years. I love you mom and miss you every minute of everyday.
