Quoting Minion:" Thank you. TBH, I didn't know people so young could have strokes. I thought it was something only for older people."
My friend has a history of health issues and bad habits, so while it was certainly not expected, we all kind of saw it in hindsight.
She was alone for 3 days before she was found and when I first saw her at the hospital she looked like a corpse. If we had waited another hour to get the police to break into her house to check on her, she would have been gone. Now she has some paralysis but she can walk and her personality is exactly the way it always was. She is still very much herself. We were very lucky. Hopefully because your SO's cousin is so young, she will make an even fuller recovery.
