    My Dad had a stroke 5 years ago. He is still kicking. I never take my blood pressure. I am too scared.

    If you read the thread, it's fairly obvious. Since this is your first post, what's your objective here?

    At this point he is probably unaware. The rough part must be when your mind functions but your speech and mobility don't. I've known 3.

    We shall see. He has been sedated. He was responsive, though confused when found.
    I wont discount a miracle and pray for one.

She has made a great deal of recovery, but is no longer independent. I must help her transfer from the wheelchair to couch, bed, toilet, etc as she never regained much strength on her left side.

    Fortunately, her left leg is the missing one and she can bear weight on the right (as I lift and hold her)

    Sunday night, one of my landlords live in aids, had a severe stroke sitting on the porch, right after everyone went to bed. The poor guy laid on the concrete, outdoors about ten hours before he was found at 8:30 AM. He is still on a ventilator in the ICU.

    I had just retired to my mother in laws unit, in the back yard, after sitting and drinking a beer with him. I should of grabbed another and maybe I would of been there...I know, I cant know everything. It was bad, he was disoriented and could only move his right arm.

    I realize most here will know the basics of stroke but I post this to urge you all to be aware and on watch. It can happen out of the blue. Time to diagnoses and treatment makes a world of difference.

    Please take the time to read the info at this link:

    Somehow I thought you were talking about "Jimmy"..... and thought you posted about him stealing from your land lord.

    Guess it time for another drink and hide.....

    My step father had 2 strokes about 2 years ago. He was lucky & make a mostly full recovery. My wife (& dr) assumed that I had had a stoke when she got up one morning & realized that something was wrong with me (I wasn't coherent). Turns out it was oxygen depravation because of pneumonia. I was lucky & with treatment it only took me 48 hours to improve.
