I am a mother of 4 boys. At the time of my aneurysm my oldest was 9 and my youngest was 1. I spent the day of my aneurysm at my babysitters graduation. I had driven her family an hour to the graduation and back. I had never met them before and couldn’t pick them out now. It was at the dinner that my husband said my eyes rolled back into my head and I fell out of the chair. I remember nothing except my nightmare about missing my sons 5th grade promotion. I was kept in a coma for a couple of weeks. From mid May to mid June 2011 I was in the ICU. I moved to rehab right before July 4. I went home in August. Life has been quite a challenge. I have right side weakness. I can no longer run. I just learned about neurofatigue which explains some things for me. I am so grateful that I have been here for my boys. I’m sad that my abilities were diminished so I could not do as much as I would have liked but the alternative was much worse. My oldest is now 18 and my youngest is 10. Thank God I survived!
