STROKE: Remember The 1st Three Letters…. S.T.R.

24 Aug


I just want to share the e-mail that I received from my Lola. Let’s read, learn, spread this post, and SAVE LIVES! This won’t take much of your time… promise!

“My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree.

If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously..

Please read:

During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …..she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Ingrid’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 pm Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don’t die…. they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this…
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke… totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR … Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke .

Now doctors say a bystander can r ecognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S * Ask the individual to SMILE.
T * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 111 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue.. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.”


Let’s Help Tatay Finds His Family

21 Aug


This entry is just a re-post of the Blog entry of someone I am totally not related to. But her blog concerns me. It is about the old and sick Tatay. (I hope he finds his family soon).

Contact Person: Jennie: 0917-4378227

He was found at the Barangay Alabang Plaza grounds just sitting under a tree about two weeks ago. He couldn’t talk, maybe caused by the stroke that he suffered before. His right hand is also immobile and he can barely move his right leg. My sister, who is a barangay kagawad, took pity on him and brought him to the OSCA center, but he was rejected there. My sister then asked the help of the local DSWD, who then brought him to the hospital to be checked up. The doctors are recommending him for a CT scan because of a possible blood clot in the brain that is causing his his high blood pressure, but the people from the DSWD said that they don’t have enough funds for that. He is now temporarily staying in our house.
I’m appealing to his family or to those who know “tatay”. He needs his family now. For any leads regarding the identity or the whereabouts of his family/relatives, you can pm or text me at this number: 0917-4378227. thanks!

Momo just gave birth last month. We decided to make a huge kulungan for her and her sooo cute puppies.
From the Frontyard, we transferred them to the backyard. It wasn’t easy for momo. She was so jealous because Bilog-our other Dog was there. Momo became hysterical, her puppies cried hard and got dirty because of momo’s feet who got putik because she jumped all day out of jealous! So we took them off the cage & washed it off. We also had to wash the babies off because of the mud prints. 😦 poor whities, blackies, and brownies!

We had a great lunch at Conti’s (Trinoma). We ordered Roasted Beef, Baked Salmon, Baked Prawns, and Cakes!

After lunch, we went to Starbucks to use their wi-fi & connect to Dad’s phone but Damn…we left the magicjack (the connector we use to make unli calls to the United States of A and Canada. So we just logged my YM in but Dad was offline. 😦 We just had drinks and I updated by blogspot na lang.

•Baked Salmon of Conti’s is a must-try!
•Wi-fi c/o Starbucks is not that good.. 😦 It costs 100php/hour despite the poor connection
•Sam and Nanay Lola left early because they had to attend to important matters!
•We just had a few pictures.. the people from Conti’s were not so friendly at that time.. maybe they were already tired.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

>Today’s is my Daddy’s bday! A bit sad because he’s away and we haven’t seen him for almost 5 years now.

We just celebrated this special day and had a lunch out with our dear lola (just an hour ago). We brought our laptop to connect to Dad’s phone but damn… we left the Magicjack!

I just logged to my YM, hoping that Dad would log-in anytime,,,,BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ! 😦

>My ex-boyfriend and I are really in good terms… we’re good as best friends but I don’t know if some people see/apreciate that friendship.

I know that OLD LOVERS CAN BE GOOD FRIENDS. However, it really depends on who sees it.

Let’s make a survey! 🙂

Please take my survey
