I’ll leave you with this: Since the stroke occurred on the right side of his brain, left-brain language and reason are intact, which means my dad is intact, even his sense of humor. Last Saturday, not an hour after the stroke, a nurse called my mom into the ER cubicle, smiled and said that when she asked my dad, during the standard neurological battery, who the president was, he said, “the Manchurian pumpkin.” Then, yesterday, when a neurologist asked him if he knew why he was in the hospital, he said, “I heard the food was good.”
In the past few days he's already made tremendous progress: when I first saw him he didn't know where he was, could hardly speak, and couldn't move the left side of his body. Now he's aware, able to converse (though slowly) and move his left side a bit.
If I or my father or my mother have risen to meet you in this life or somehow lightened your load, I hope you’ll consider giving what you can to help a wonderful man get his life back. Please share this and know that you have my deep gratitude.
