It is still early days, he suffered the stroke on Sunday 5th October. Some days he appears to be much more aware and able to understand us and some days he barely seems to recognise us. Yesterday, Sunday 12th October, he was the most aware and communicative he has been, but, still very limited. Hopefully, his communication and awareness and mental capacity will only increase over time but no one can say with any certainty if that will happen and how long it might take. He is currently significantly physically debilitated. He is right handed and it appears that all the motor skills of his right limbs are compromised.
Thank you for your help and assistance. Sadly Dad passed away early on Saturday morning.
