Update on my dad, he has aphasia from the stroke but it has been improving since Saturday. They still need to do more tests. I’m just terrified for him. Aphasia is when you can’t make connections with languages between speaking and listening. All of his intelligence is still there but my heart is breaking thinking of how tough it will be for him and uninformed people might treat him like an idiot. To still have all of your intelligence but not be able to communicate! It is a nightmare for anyone. It just reminds me of when you’re supposed to be under anesthesia but you aren’t and are still conscious… just kind of the opposite. It just hasn’t been easy for him or me in general and this is just one more thing. I’m not sure he will be able to drive or work and that will be even harder for him. I will have all the patience with him but I don’t think others will. All because he tries to do everything for everyone. He just doesn’t deserve this. No one does.
