August 15, 2007, I survived a grade 5 subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured aneurysm on my right middle cerebral artery. I had a 10% chance of survival, and of that, a 2% chance I would be functional.
It took 10 hours after the rupture before I received the appropriate medical intervention.
At the time of injury I was 30 years old.
When I woke up from my coma and brain surgery, I was half paralyzed, lost half my vision, and lost half my sensation. At the time this weblog was created I was about 18 months post injury.
I am sharing my story with you to help survivors of severe intracranial bleeds, their support networks, and the medical community, learn about what I experienced, demystify the recovery process and offer hope for recovery.
I invite you to review the tabs at the top of this page to navigate the journey 🙂
Aneu is defined as brand new, since everything is new for me post bleed.
Aneu is also a play on the word aneurysm 😉 I am definitely Aneu Gal!
I am a survivor of a grade 5 subarachnoid hemorrhage survivor from a ruptured brain aneurysm. This is my story.
