Re: Will he survive???
It is a great shock when a stroke strikes. I've had mine. Those of us here were so very lucky in what our strokes did not do to us. We did not lose our consciousness, our ability to think, to speak, to understand, to eat, to swallow, to breathe, to control our bodily functions, our mobility.
Medicine today can keep us alive in ways that are beyond belief. With no living will in place, the tragedy grows and compounds. I know of this first hand, suffer every day because my sibling had no living will in place and so any and all measures of rescue are employed while the definition of life and living is defined and redefined. This leads into big ethical questions. I know where I stand: my living will is in place and I will never relinquish control over my life to anyone else.
