Life After Stroke: Leonardo

Life After Stroke: Leonardo

How did my son's stroke change my life? 

To be or not to be, that is the question...
In Summary: My son's stroke has distorted my mother's way of being. First of all, I'm a mom plus mom: The Curse of our firstborn has put on me an irrepressable instinct to wind. We have three children now and I would continue, even if it were not that...

Life After Stroke: Leonardo

Suddenly we stopped. He was intent on looking at the wall that led to the sea. Or at least, so it seemed to me at that moment. Maybe he saw something interesting, which I had escaped. I didn't know it yet, but at that very moment our life was just dyed purple.

HOW TO EXPLAIN TO A CHILD WHAT A STROKE IS?

HOW TO EXPLAIN TO A CHILD WHAT A STROKE IS?

In 2017 we completed our first survey on the knowledge of stroke on a representative sample of the Italian population (source: Omnibus Doxa – Sample 1000 representative cases of the Italian population, December 2017), to which we have Asked: 'Do you think stroke is a disease that can affect even children who are still born, who are in the belly of mom?'. The results did not amaze us...

Life After Stroke: riky

My life has changed: it would have changed anyway with the arrival of a child. Riky is now almost two years old and fills every space and every moment of my day. He's got a left hemiparesis. He has an emiparesis, not his emiparesis. He's a kid. He's a happy child. And that's what's important! ...

Life After Stroke: Riccardo

Riccardo was born with a smile. "Why don't you Cry?" "He smiles, he's just born but he's happy already!"
Here's what I remember of his birth, I remember his rosy face, plump and above all serene.
Maybe that's what I want to remember because in reality this feeling of peace, of extreme beauty lasted a moment and then I slipped away from my hands despite efforts to stop the memory of that beautiful perception of emotional perfection.

A chair in a waiting room. This is what I remember about the moment when, during the ultrasound of the eighth month, the doctor told us that "something was wrong". I remember the legs that were plotting and that chair, where I could not sit, waiting for the doctor to write the report and call us again in the study....

Life After Stroke: Clara

Today I want to share with you the story of my family. Before and after stroke. I am Brazilian and I moved to Italy in 2004 to study. Here I meet a Canadian boy who grows up in Florence called Carlo Woods. He's 13 years older than me and has 2 daughters since his first marriage. "Sunflower", 26 years old and "Pink", 24 years old.

Life After Stroke: Elena

Life After Stroke: Elena

The sense of loss that I felt when we received the diagnosis was immense and still peeps every now and then into me, even though it has been almost 5 years. The extent of what was communicated to us that day was a thunderbolt in the clear sky. The motor problems of our daughter Elena (EMI DX), who was 10 months at the time of diagnosis, we had noticed them for a long time; However, we would never have imagined the size of the damage that his brain had undergone at a time that is still not known accurately, including between the 28th week of pregnancy and the 28th day of Life.....

Life After Stroke: CAMILLA

I remember exactly the expression of the Doctor who first told us that Camilla had had a cerebral hemorrhage, then a loud noise, the desperate embrace with Alexios and the spaceship, also more commonly called "Thermocradle", which if the door Via. It had only been 28 days since his birth, days very different from how we imagined them, because we, in our hearts, we always knew that something was wrong, despite the assurances or accusations of being parents eager for doctors and TIN nurses where she was hospitalied for jaundice.....
