I have been overseeing the care of my mother who suffered two strokes - one in March 2009, and another in December 2009. She has been able to walk on her own after a few weeks of rehab since her first attack, but I try to have someone by her side just in case she falls. She has some assistance when she bathes and changes clothes and goes to the toilet, and is able to feed herself.
Just recently, my relatives have insisted on taking her to the US - from San Joaquin, Iloilo to Miami, Florida. I don't think it's good a good idea, but they form the majority. What are the risks and pros and cons?View Thread
