Dolores Aveiro was discharged from hospital almost three weeks later as she stated that she was ‘recovering well’ and she thanked the doctors and medical team that treated her.

And she has now taken to social media to speak in depth about her ordeal and the impact it had on her family.

Captioning a photo of her on Instagram in the hospital captured 12 days after her stroke, she said: “A year ago today I saw my life almost running between my fingers.

“And luckily I managed to hold on to a light, a light that pulled me up, a light that stubbornly insisted that it was just another obstacle to be overcome and another story of overcoming to tell.

“I never spoke openly about what actually happened, just because I recovered to almost 100 per cent people think that nothing happened or that the scare I gave my children and those who really love me was small.”

Before adding: “I stayed in a hospital bed, connected to dozens of wires and incubated. The hours after the stroke were torture.

“They didn’t know how I was going to wake up, they didn’t know how the damage would be, they were afraid of losing me, fear that I would be disabled, without recognising them, and with many limitations.”

She continued: “I woke up, a few hours later, not knowing what happened to me. I looked ahead and saw my children, around my bed. I was surrounded by machines, unable to move.
