Please help me with your prayers, thoughts, or whatever fits in with your beliefs. My husband had a serious stroke yesterday. Whole family is at the hospital waiting to see how he is. He is lucid, knows who we are, where he is and that "Vicki thought I was having a stroke." As for why he is here. I am almost unable to eat. My kids are taking good care of me. I got rest last night. I managed to eat a little. At least one of us is with him all the time. I'm not super coherent so this maybe all makes sense.

Aw Vicki.  :(

One of my bass playing mates had a stroke about 18 months ago and although he's not family,I get a little of how you must be feeling.

Hold on to the positives,that he is alive and lucid.

Look after yourself Vicki,you'll not be much use if you end up ill yourself.

I'll be thinking of you,be strong.

This is a thank you for the moral support. I need every ounce I can get.

For anyone interested in an update, this is what I know.

Stroke was caused by atrial fib condition that we didn't know he had. One chamber of heart quivers instead of beating. Blood pools, clots, get into bloodstream and eventually the brain where it blocks arteries.

Most of the right side has been damaged though not 100%. But a lot of damage. Probably won't regain full use of left side of body. He will make some progress though. He's gone from not recognizing the left side at to being able to point it out and sometimes even move the arm or leg. But not usually and not much. We have a lot of work ahead of us.

Speech and language are good. Speech is slurred but understandable. He knows everyone by name, including people he hasn't seen for awhile.

That's all I can handle reporting right now, but that's pretty much what I know.

Dear Vicki and Husband, This is a shocking time for you and He, for he knows what's going on, but he may not be able to communicate how he feels so well.

@CaliaMoko - So sorry to hear of your husband, my Father had a stroke too, and it was  awful to see him trapped in there. I know it depends on what damage has been done as to what he can do and understand, but there may be rays of light even so early afterwards...have a friend that works on a stroke ward in a really good hospital in Germany and there is LOTS they can do, I made the mistaken assumption  that he wouldn't wouldn't get any better, I know you'll read up a lot and search the web, and  yes you are right, it's hard work, an an emotional roller coaster. He is still the same bloke, his humour, his likes etc.

You have my moral and musical support, you might find quite a bit of solace in music Vicki, both listening to what others have penned about the same situation and expressing your own.

Keep strong, and I'd be interested to know how you are all getting to grips with it all.

Rich
