Patient : MY 66 YR OLD SISTER HAS SUFFERED A STROKE THAT TOOK OUT HER ENTIRE LEFT SIDE. AFTER 30 DAYS OF REHAB WITH NO MOVEMENT, SHE NOW HAS BLOOD CLOTS IN HER LUNGS. I KNOW BLOOD THINNERS ADD TO STOKE POSSIBILITIES, SO WOULD A STRAINER BE A LOGICAL POSSIBILITY OR WILL THESE CLOTS REALLY MAKE HER NOT GET WELL AT ALL?
