David Counceller Stroke Recovery

On Wednesday October 3rd, our dad, David Counceller had a hemorrhagic stroke. This is when a ruptured blood vessel causes bleeding in the brain. He was medevaced to Indianapolis because the bleeding was not stopping. Fortunately it did eventually stop before brain surgery was necessary.  
At this point he is still hospitalized. The stroke has left him with serious speech problems and also impaired use of his right hand.   
His recovery is going to be a long haul that includes a lot of speech, occupational, and physical therapy. We are still unsure at this point of how much he will regain from this brain trauma, but we remain optimistic. 
David Counceller is a wonderful man. He has had a career serving his community as a law enforcement officer and police chief. He is a charismatic person who is used to being on the other side of situations like this... he is a helper, a caring person who has reached out and helped so many in his lifetime. 
The last thing I want is for my dad to worry about anything right now. I want him to rest and rehabilitate. Donations made to this fund will go to help Dave now, and in the future as he faces recovery from this difficult trauma. 
Thank you so much.
