Update in my son

Last edited Sun Oct 28, 2018, 01:25 PM - Edit history (1)

MRI showed My son had 2 small strokes in the cerebellar cortex caused by a bilateral vertebral artery dissection. We don't know yet what caused the dissection, its possible we may never know for sure but some of the tests done that we are still waiting on results of may give a better indication of what that maybe as well as treatment here on out. As of now, he will be in hospital for at least through today and at most likely tomorrow. His medical team thinks the best plan of action would be to go to an acute rehab center after released from the hospital, hes looking at 1-2 weeks (could be more, praying for less) there depending on how his body responds to the therapy.

Hopefully after the get the genetic test back in the blood clot history it may tell us more but other possibles he had a pretty major accident in Jan ( was t boned) possible it plays into this or maybe precedent storm as one doctor put it. We may never know.
The one doc today said in 9 years my son is the only 28 year old heís seen for stroke
Obviously more at the larger hosp ( or Harberview etc)
I will put out Iím grateful to my daughter who is taking notes and doing most of sending stuff to my family on her phone she is better at texting etc and better at phone stuff. I copied most of the above stuff from her post to our immediate family my phone is tiny itís hard to see.

Now again I want to thank everyone for all the awesome support hugs and info I was trying to thank everyone individually - so hard so everyone hereís your ď individual
Thank you hug 😊

7. My daughter is a physical rehab nurse

Most of her patients are stroke patients. She said the younger the person is, the greater chance of a full recovery. Even a huge difference in a person in their 50ís vs. 70ís. The odds are in his favor.
