Larry’s Back in the Hospital

After an MRI, it was discovered that my brother Larry had a stroke. It is a very small stroke in his brain stem, but enough to screw up his equilibrium and coordination. He still has trouble speaking, moving his arms, and his face is numb. It is quite possible that he will make a full recovery, but for now, he needs watching. He is not very happy, but he feels safer in the hospital, even a poor one like Nyack hospital.

I hope they send him home today. He lost his job last year and when the benefits ran out he bought the cheapest insurance that money can buy. He’s not going to be able handle the cost of all the tests and a day in the hospital.
