Neurologist says Sandi's brain damage is permanent and not reversible at all. The only thing that can be done at this point is to attempt to keep her blood pressure down low enough so she does not stroke again. The problem with that is as soon as she gets up and starts doing something, her blood pressure goes way up. He believes mood swings are caused by blood pressure spikes causing brain swelling.

Heartbreaking, Kevin. It's beyond any words I can say.

Thank you everyone. I just don't know what we are going to do. The stress of going to a homeless shelter may kill both of us. Things just keep happening.

I'm exhausted and overwhelmed.
