    strokes

    Oh No

    Not only does he have stage 4 and severe div in ten legs and lungs. 3 weeks ago he suffered multiple strokes that damage his behavior and memory of the brain. Drs don't know how he will recover he is very aggressive and has been restrained and sedated a few times. I can't have him home with our 3year old and they say he can't go to rehab cause of the behavior is there any suggestions?

    Lost loved one

    Loss

    Some of you might remember I lost my husband 7 month ago, Not only did hefight Lung cancer but he fought with strokes and blood clots, I still log in here from time to time. I miss everything about him. as confusing as this is i miss taking care of him. I have been trying to find a support group here, Hospice offers maybe once a month. Will there be any suggestions? It seem to be harder for me to deal. It almost a year..It like it hit a brick wall
