Recognizing A Stroke

Photobucket

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:

During a BBQ, a woman 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 s
hoes.

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

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane 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.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE

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 recognize 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. Chicken Soup)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: 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.

Song~Don't Tell Them Jesus Loves Them - Steve Camp

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-IHw8wr_-M&feature=related 

 Don't Tell Them Jesus Loves Them 
- by Steve Camp 

 Oh suffering soul, crying out for 
love In a world that seldom cares 
See the hungry heart longing to be filled 
Much more than our prayers 
And a young girl sells herself on Seventh Avenue 
And you hear her crying out for help, 
"My God, what will we do?" 

 Don't tell them Jesus loves them 
till you're ready to love them too 
Till your heart breaks from the sorrow 
and the pain they're going through 
With a life full of compassion 
may we do what we must do 
Don't tell them Jesus loves them 
till you're ready to love them too 
Oh, the desperate man 
Are we reaching for the souls 
that are sinking down in sin? 

Oh, cry for the child 
We've lost our passion for the lost 
and there are billions left to win 
And another forty thousand children 
starve to death today 
Would we risk all we have 
to see one of them say 
Why have we waited so long 
to show them Jesus lives 
To share salvation's song 
Why have our hearts become so proud 
that we fail to see 
To love them is to love God 
And a young girl sells herself on Seventh Avenue 
Hear her crying out for help,"What will we do?" 
Don't tell them Jesus loves them...
'til you're ready to love them too.

Mama's Healing Salve

My friend, Leslie, makes a home made salve for an over all healing salve. My son slid down the stairs and got a bad carpet burn on his leg that just wasn't healing with regular antibiotic ointment for over a week. It was almost totally healed in 4 days with the use of this Mama's Healing Salve. He said it soothed it and made it feel better! He uses it for acne on his face nowadays! Go like her facebook page and try it! https://www.facebook.com/MamasHealingSalve
