    My mother had a stroke at age 85 and could no longer talk, feed herself, etc. Her care at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden enabled her to answer yes or no questions but she could not answer any question requiring thougt such as "How do you feel today"?

    With a younger person, there is hope of recovery. When my elderly mother was mercifully released from this life, it was a more joyful than sorrowful time as we knew she was no longer trapped inside a non-responsive physical body.

    Having taken care of my father for five years after his stroke, I found great empathy relating to this young mother and will be tuning into Mormon Times tomorrow, for sure! Those who live after a stroke and those who care for them have unbelievable challenges!
