Frank P.


My husband, Frank, was very active and watched everything he ate. He did not smoke or drink. On April 18, 2010 in the early morning hours, Frank woke me up and said his arm was asleep. I could tell by his face and speech that he had a stroke. Frank spent 2 1/2 weeks in the hospital. He could not eat or drink during that time. Then he went to a rehab hospital and was there for three weeks. He could not do anything when he went. Within three weeks, he was up walking, talking and dressing himself. He is still recuperating.
