PostSubject: My step dad just had strokes   Sun Apr 28, 2013 4:21 am

My step-dad Phil Snyder just had strokes.
The problem is with a small vessel in his brain and they
can't do anything about it because of the location.
He is 63 yrs old and was really looking forward to retiring in a couple years.
Sadly he has lost the use of his hands, legs, speech, and some
eye-sight and he may continue to have strokes.
He's in the Altoona Pa hospital in serious condition.
I am so worried about him and my mom...
All prayers welcome! Thanks

Thanks everyone,

UPDATE:

Next few days are critical as he has a small vessel in his brain that's
slightly bleeding so they can not give him any blood thinners thus he could
have more strokes... But we are praying this doesn't happen. Hopefully in
a few days they can get him on a blood thinner... He has already had
two strokes...
Phils mouth is drooped on one side, can't move left arm at all, left leg is sluggish but he's moving it. Speech is slurred and his eyes were slightly effected...
But they are starting therapy tomorrow which is good news...

Reallgog hoping he pulls through Jim. I was paralysed for 6 months after brain surgery, it was a long recovery but on a good day very few people would notice. As I said My thoughts and good wishes are with both of you.

Wishing him a full recovery, I know someone who had a stroke and has made a full recovery.
It's been a bit of a horrible year so far for my family too, my father-in-law has been diagnosed with blood cancer and I have lost my job of 24 years.

Again, all the best mate.

Thanks all for prayers & concerns!

So far no more strokes for Phil & they have started therapy...
They do CT scans on him checking the small bleeding vessel
in his brain. They will try blood thinners again as soon as the
slight bleeding ceases.

So for now we are just praying he has no more strokes and starts
showing some improvement... Thanks... Jim

Thanks all for prayers & concerns,

The slight bleeding in Phils brain stopped sometime yesterday.
So tonight they moved Phil to Health South Rehab Center
in Altoona Pa for therapy.

Phil has already shown some slight improvements.

Phil will not be able to return to work at the Paper Mill.
The Paper Mill said they will continue to pay him his
salary up until he retires.
The stroke happened at his work-place...

So all in all things are starting to look up... Thanks... Jim

My mom was alittle PO-ed at Phil yesterday...lol
First off Phil can not move his left arm and his left leg
is sluggish and clumsy.

When my mom arrived at the Health South Rehab Center yesterday
she could not find Phil and she panicked. Then this wheelchair came flying passed her...lol
It was Phil...lol
So I think he's feeling better...lol

Thanks all! Smile

Phils now walking with a cane. They are shocking his face and left arm/fingers
trying to get them back in working order.
Phils speech is getting better!
Each day he's making small improvements!

Thanks all for prayers & concerns! Very much appreciated! Smile

Thanks all!


Well Phils health insurance wants him out of therapy even though
Phil has a ways to go to improve...
Health South Therapy Center is keeping Phil until Friday free of charge
these next 2 days. Health South Therapy center will be trying to
get Phils health insurance to continue his sessions as he needs more
therapy...
Phil fell yesterday...
So I'll keep you up to date on this situation...
