It's not about what movie will we go see tonight or how will 
I get my hair done . . . let's go to the mall . . . how about the country 
dance at Harry's this weekend . . . it's bowling night tonight . . . or 
let's go to the ball game! 

It's more like a constant repetition . . . helping someone to 
communicate . . . both of you, having more patience than you've 
ever imagined . . . 
medication, maybe for the rest of their life . . . 10 
minutes to walk 50 feet . . . 5 minutes to put on one shoe . . . learning 
to eat with your opposite hand and not being able to cut your 
meat . . . wanting the salt, but unable to ask for it.  These are some of 
the after stroke challenges faced by stroke survivors and caregivers.

They wonder if they are going to fall again.  You wonder, if you 
should go grocery shopping for fear they will.  You're out of bread, 
so you go. They fall . . . they get bruised . . . they don't tell you.  You 
see it hours later or the next day . . . you ask them about it.  They 
say it doesn't hurt, they can move their fingers, arms, legs (the side 
that isn't paralyzed).  They seem to be ok, and refuse to go to the 
doctor.

Falling after a stroke can be a common occurrence.  Actually, life  
after a stroke includes falling.  In most cases, it's going to happen 
at some point. If you are on a blood thinner, like coumadin or 
warfarin and you fall, you need to have it checked out.  The reason 
the doctors need to monitor you with regular blood draws when on 
a blood thinner is because, if your blood is too thin and you fall, you 
could bleed to death. On the other hand, if it's too thick and you  
fall, you could acquire a blood clot that you are unaware of.  A blood  
clot can grow to many feet throughout the body.  Either way, too 
thin or too thick it could cause you to have another stroke. 

GET IT CHECKED!!!
