Help David talk and walk again

On the 10th October my husband David ages 44 suffered a huge  bleed to his brain without any earning he just fell of the bed onto the floor at 11:30 pm . He couldn’t talk was shaking and couldn’t move any of his right side and I knew it was a stroke . I called an ambulance and he was rushed to hospital leaving our sons at home who unfortunately witnessed what happen she’s just 8 and 15. We arrived at hospital and I was put in a room and waited 5 hours on my own . Finally a nurse and doctor told me he had suffered a huge bleed and they didn’t think he would survive and I was told to say my goodbyes before they attempted to try and sage his life with surgery . I will never forget that night . David was my total hero and we have never been apart in 18 years . Later that Day he had surgery which is called a craniotomy, they remove a piece of skull to release the brain from swelling and they removed the bleed . David was put in a coma and ventilated . 2 days later the pressure was rising on his brain and he had to have another surgery he stayed in ICU on a ventilator for 2 weeks before becoming more stable and moved to a Neurological ward . David could no longer talk or move any of his right side and due to Covid we were unable to see him so he went through 6 weeks on his own without his family . Our world has been turned upside down and myself and my children are devastated and miss him so much . My youngest son Chsrlie recorded a song that David use to sing me and we wanted to get it to David in hospital and it was shared on Facebook and went viral and reached David .
Dsvid is now at Chorley hospital for rehabilitation he still cannot talk except yes and he’s in so much pain in his right side . He has also got vision problems .David is in very low mood and rehabilitation is slow and limited . David would greatly benefit from intense therapy from a private rehabilitation team but as David can no longer work we just don’t have the funds and I will be his full time carer . David is the most loveliest strongest Man and we we just want him back we know he may never be the same David but he deserves to live a quality life .
Please help us get David home and give the children  there Dad back .
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Love Kathryn , Olivia . Ronan and Charlie
