A stroke of bad luck

Last Monday my dad had a stroke. He was taken to the ER on Monday (where he remained in the ER for 15 hours!!!!!!! Because, they didn't have a room!!!! WTH?!). He was released on Friday.

He is doing pretty good, but he has some communication problems. He struggles with direct questions, names, and just finding the right word sometimes.

Overall, he is doing GREAT! Especially, since it has only been a week! However, we still have a road ahead of us. I have been doing everything I can... I even spent about 4 hours on the phone trying to get a CT scheduled today! Still, it is hard seeing him struggle through this. :(

Please, keep him in your thoughts.
