  1. Thank you all...I have been moved literally to tears this morning for all the prayers and support for my James. He may be going home from the hospital today as they really can't do anything more for him now and his wife wants to care for him herself rather than send him off to the one nursing home that the VA found that would accept him with his trach. He had just begun a massive remodeling program on their house before the stroke and his wife has struggled to find contractors and the financing to complete it so he can be made comfortable on his arrival. I started a gofundme page to help her with it and so far we have collected about $2700 out of the estimated need of $5,000 so I once again find myself overwhelmed with gratitude. There are still so many kind and caring people out there!
  2. Thank you for that. I am a member of the group that doesn't really endorse firearms but James has always enjoyed collecting and did some hunting so he would probably really appreciate your group and as I previously stated, we need all the prayers we can get!☺️
  3. Yes please... we need all the prayers we can get.

    Hi Renzo. It is definitely a process but hang in there!

  10. Hello. I’m so glad to find this forum! I suffered a TIA back in 2003 but I was one of the lucky ones who quickly overcame my speech issues and have mental issues few can detect. My 44 year old son, however, was not so fortunate. He suffered a massive ischemic stroke on Oct 9, 2019 and had a craniotomy to relieve swelling in his skull a couple of days later. He was fairly responsive the first day in the hospital, responding to basic commands. After surgery though he has been in a coma, not responsive at all. So now it’s been more than 30 days. Can anyone who has any experience in long comas following an ischemic stroke offer us any encouragement at all? The medical staff at the hospital paints a very bleak picture.
