Jays amnesia

Jay an I have been married 25 years. We have 2 adult daughters, the youngest having autism .  Jay had open brain surgery a year ago to fix an aneurysm but sadly things went horribly wrong. The surgery was long an complicated an jay suffered two mild strokes. The real sadness would hit us when he woke up. He did not know who any of us were. The specialists  have said jay has a profound retrograde amnesia. His memory of his life (45 years) is completely gone, his childhood, meeting me, marriage, kids. Every single moment in his life erased. We have been told it's from the complications of surgery an the damage to his brain. He's unlikely to ever get his memory back.  We have learnt in the last few weeks that Jays now facing more surgery as the aneurysm is growing back at an alarming rate. Everyday life again is ian uncertainty,  Jay is one of the most wonderful people you will ever meet. He has always given to those around him. He would give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it more. We have all suffered financially an meeting regular bills is difficult. The main thing the girls an I would like to do is help him see his dream through of restoring his pride an joy, an LH Torana. This would be the biggest gift we could give back to him.
