Hi shelley, I too hope that he is ok and comfortable today.

Hi me mums bin see him and he's doing great.. It was caught early. The feeling in his arm back just a little droop on his mouth

He might need an op tho to relese sum pressur on his brain. But apparently he bin ill for a few months and not been listing to the docs. He been blacking out and collapsed twice in town :rolleyes: fails to let any ov us no tho., typical of him . Was told to take it easy but had not listened and bin digging up his allotment Ect

But he doing well loveing the nurses.. :D still being his old charming shelf.

Sending my best wishes and prayers for his speedy recovery. He sounds like a great bloke!

Had update today.

He out but the op on the blood clot in his brain that caused the stroke cannot safy be removed.

So he's got blood thinning medication and had bin warned that he might have another stroke in the coming weeks

If tablets don't shift the clot there's now they can do so he s ticking time bomb.

HI Shelly darling, just saw this and hugs to you and family, sounds like he has been lucky! hopefully they thinners work ,my fingers and toes crossed for you

Sending my best to you and your family. I will keep everything crossed also that the thinning medication works for your grandad.xxxx
