How do you cope after your spouse has a stroke?
2 1/2 weeks ago I had a heart attack. 1 week later my husband had a stroke. They said only his speech was affected. After a week in the hospital, then coming home a few days ago, I do not have the same man. He is different, can't communicate and gets angry fast, which i can understan! He got an infection in the hospital and has a picc line in. I hadn't even recovered from my heart attack yet and now this. I feel a sense of grieving for the man I knew. Has anyone gone through this? If he gets better, how long could that take? He refuses to eat despite all the different foods I offer. Help!!! I'm so overwhelmed.
