    To me, a nap is like an hour or two. I take several naps every night throughout the night. Five hours is more sleep than I get all night.

      Thank you so much 

  8. It works for me but go to https://strokenetblog.net/2014/07/20/techniques-in-communication/ Your husband's stroke was very recent. The first 6 - 12 months are when the majority of recovery occurs. Recovery, though, is actually a lifetime event. It can be painfully slow but it NEVER, EVER stops! Be patient because in 5 years you both can look back and marvel at how much you have learned and how much he has recovered. It varies for each person due to how much time and effort they put into it. The sooner that they start rehabbing the better. Anyway, please read the entire article. Something else you might be interested in is our Stroke Caregivers Handbook. Over a dozen of our experienced stroke caregivers pooled together and wrote down everything they learned, typically the hard way, for the inexperienced stroke caregiver.
  9. Please go to our website called, Stroke Education, for more information about stroke. The page about Rehabilitation is extremely important! My type of stroke happened in the brain stem, which did not affect any area of the brain. Many, 9 of 12, cranial nerves were damaged. My cognitive skills were not affected but most of my mechanical skills were destroyed, including my speech. At first, I could only blink my eyes. I quickly developed communication skills. Please read my article called, Techniques in Communication. It explains how you can communicate with your husband even though he cannot speak. Check out my website at http://www.stevemallory.org/ if you want to read more about me and my stroke.
