    this time its bad, really really bad

    wednesday rush him to hospital just like last year not breathing well, this time just about to reach he collapse in car

    cpr all that revive him but now after 5 days doctors say his condition didnt improve and very likely in coma state with only ventilator machine supporting him to breath

    the collapse causes brain damage, he is having seizure from big to small ones but with meds its not so much now..still the damage is done and his condition in doctors view bad

    watching him collapse in front of me the most painful thing, that time im so shock, freeze, blur and lost of words..sigh..we pray we hope he can get thru this

    he is at seberang jaya GH ICU, been 7 days now no improvement, infact not so good with on and off fever as well

    thinking bout im not gonna talk to him ever again make me so heart broken

    The good thing about being in a government hospital's ICU is that they really give the best treatment possible, irrespective of cost.

    That said, you guys can help him pull through by being there with him. They will actually allow a close family member to stay with him, if you request. Keep talking to him, attend to his needs and generally let him know you are there.

    When Jenny was supposedly in a coma, she could actually hear us talking, and she even remembered some of the stuff we said after she recovered. And studies have shown that people in coma do better if there's good support from the family.

    MIRACLE!!! wednesday he already wake up!!

    he can recognize us, nod to us, move his hand and leg, can close open close his eyes just everything doctors ask him to do

    he did the impossible waking up in 7 days, we are so glad and happy for him

    but still on ventilator to help him breath, his breathing is not good yet..y'day high fever but just now we go visit him improving bit by bit

    a long slow road to recovery, still doctors describe him a miracle


    yes, govt hospital got all the equipment, the doctors are good the nurse and staff are all good..if we can afford private hospital why not but we cant..still they do amazing job without even talk about money

    abit worry just now, this morning doctors say his BP and oxygen level suddenly they run ventilator to max give him medication and sedation to let him rest

    y'day visit him he seems like wana fight his way out, we told him to relax go easy dont fight too much as he is still weak..maybe he work himself too hard

    another day another worry..hopefully things are better from now

    WOW!! That is fantastic news!! :thumb: :thumb:

    It's good to sedate him to rest. When he's sedated or put into a medical coma, it reduces the amount of oxygen the brain needs, limiting the amount of damage caused by the stroke and preventing further damage.

    Keep us updated!! :thumb:

    I'm praying your dad will be okay and good. Public hospitals are pretty good and efficient nowadays. The doctors and the staffs are doing the best.

    thanks guys for the support :)

    on friday he fights alot, we know he is uncomfortable he is suffering alot but not much can do but to rest more

    hopefully he can calm down go thru this

    one thing is that govt hospital with so many doctors can have too many opinion but everything is great, they are doing their job to help my dad

    Right now, the key thing is to let his brain rest, to minimise damage. Once he stabilises and there's no risk of further strokes or spikes in his ICP (intracranial pressure) from the oedema, he can then be transferred to a normal ward and start physiotherapy.

    dr adrian wong? wow :thumb:

    i google abit but none of this thing is told by doctors there, make me kinda blur now though with different opinion from doctors there..but both of his hand is swollen though none on leg

    y'day and today he moves alot, he raise his hand high up moves his leg alot, can do whatever doc told him to do but looks like he is some kind of pain or discomfort

    maybe 2 weeks on bed hurting his back and legs, y'day only done tracheostomy as well

    That's really great. It sounds like he's out of danger. Do make sure you guys keep him company. Moral support is critical to the patient's survival. :thumb:
