A short intro. My wife's mum had a stroke a week and a day ago. She got to hospital fast, but over the first 24-36 hours went downhill fast. She is now completely unresponsive. She has no body function and cannot swallow and is being fed through a tube up her nose. Her eyes are just rolling and today my wife showed me her mum on skype and as she called her, I was watching her eyes and I saw no indication of life inside.
She has been moved to an ICU room now because she has a build up of fluid on her lungs and cannot breath well any more.
Please be as honest as possible as to the outcome for my mother in law, good or bad I need to know. She is in a Philippine hospital, I am stuck here in China and cant get back to see for myself right now. I am a Brit.
Thank you in advance any doctor that can be honest with me SteveView Thread
