sukie31 Posted April 29, 2021 Share Posted April 29, 2021 Hello Everyone, I am new to the board. My husband had a stroke on 3/31/21 when he was on a solo trip 200 miles away from where we live. He was brought to an area hospital on 4/1, then moved to another hospital that's about 150 miles from where we live that was more equipped to help stroke survivors. He is now in an acute inpatient rehab. His stroke was an MCA on the right side of his brain and it affected a substantial area. He has little to no movement on his left side right now. His speech has been affected, but continues to improve every day. He has some short-term memory issues and some issues with vision. For example, yesterday he said that the bottom of the bed looked like it needed to be straightened out because it was at a 90-degree angle to the rest of the bed. He is a very active person and his mood has been very up and down, admittedly mostly down which makes sense to me considering everything that has happened. His personality is very much intact which I am grateful for. I'm thankful that this board exists and I have a question that I'll post in a different section.
