My dad had a stroke about 1 year ago. He's been extremely depressed and his physical condition seems to be slowly deteriorating. He keeps getting pnemonia, so they put in a feeding tube because food and drink and saliva gets into his lungs because the muscle in his throat is partially paralyzed. The doctors give us the shrug and say to give it time. Does anyone have any information??
