I don't know why I took so long to update. It's been 1 year and 5 months since his stroke. He is doing good. He had to learn to walk and can do really well until he gets tired and then he gets a bit wobbly.
His eyes are pretty good except the left side, his eye is numb and he still is vertically challenged.
The left side of his head and face is still numb (in a wierd way) that if it rains or snows hard it stings.
His whole right side is also numb and it stings in a different way. He said his arm is constantly freezing but it is strong. He never lost strength. plus he can't tell if something is hot or cold with his right side.
I am hoping to find a holistic doctor and get him off different pills.
He is now a vegetarian like me (after watching Forks Over Knives) and he is always trying to do something and keep busy.
We were told he was very lucky and if he wasn't in such good shape he might have died.
Oh yes, he had a rotator cuff repaired this last March (it was a complete tear) and after that healed for awhile a tree fell on his same shoulder. (Causing a seperated shoulder) Now that has to heal.
BUT he is doing good and if you saw him you wouldn't know all this has happened.
Now we are both trying to eat healthier and exercise.
I am know he will keep improving.
Thank you all for your prayers, I know that helped a whole bunch.
