Dolores Aveiro, Cristiano Ronaldo’s mom, suffered a stroke that nearly took her life on March 3, 2020.
Now, she is making a progressive healing and is grateful to be by her household’s side.
“It was difficult and I thought it was the end for me,” Dolores confessed to the Portuguese media outlet ITV.
“When I saw my eldest grandson, ‘Cristianinho’, come into my room to visit me, it was a big shock for me.
” I hoped to God not to take me; I wish to see my grandchildren mature which’s what occurred. There was a great deal of faith there, however it was hard.”
Cristiano’s mother also recalled the moment before she was rushed to hospital.
” I got up to go to the restroom and passed out; I dropped,” Dolores noted.
“When I recuperated I attempted to get up, however I understood that the left side of my body was paralysed. I called my partner, Jose Andrade, and informed him I didn’t feel well and asked him to call 999. I do not keep in mind getting to the medical facility.
“In my case, it was five minutes. Cristiano called the doctor from Italy and thank God I had the operation. Many people are not as lucky as me.
“My healing is progressive. I left the medical facility walking, however it has actually impacted my left side, my mouth, my leg, my speech. A year ago today, I saw my life nearly go through my fingers.”
