    I wish the best for you and your wife. As others have pointed out, there is hope for substantial recovery in many cases of stroke, and sometimes it takes a while--and a lot of work--to make it happen.

    My father had a clot and then a brain hemorrhage two years ago at the age of 84. I was so scared I could hardly function. Various approaches to dissolving the clot were tried, and at least one of them was successful. The family was concerned about his problems walking, thinking, speaking. A doctor friend of mine said not to give up hope - - these things can turn around, sometimes miraculously. And dad's did! Over time, his mental acuity returned, his coordination. Last weekend, I walked a mile with him at a decent pace. He was talking about stock investments - - his main hobby. He was quite clear in his thinking.

    Hang in there. It's scary stuff, but things can turn out much better than you might believe today,.

    The only thing I can do is offer a little hope. My daughter felt something was wrong, was near a hospital while she was traveling out of town. Drove into the parking lot to the front door, and called the desk and said she was possibly having a stroke. The hospital personnel rushed out to where she was, got her inside and treated her right away. She did indeed have a blood clot in her brain. The prompt treatment helped tremendously.

    My son went up to where she was by train, and drove her company car back and turned it in. She remained in the hospital for several days, and had to be off work for quite a while, but her brain somehow constructed a pathway around the clot. That was a little over eight years ago, and she is completely recovered now. She had a slight problem with her left hand for a while but that cleared up.

    I'm just writing this to offer hope, because she is completely recovered now, and working in a high stress job! This occurred on the same day I entered the hospital here in B-Town for a hip replacement. She did not let us know for a couple of days because she didn't want me not going ahead with my hip replacement. She knew if I had known I'd have cancelled and went where she was straightway. By the time I found out, I couldn't travel.
