Dad had a stroke.
My father had a stroke 2 days ago, he had it at night, and not knowing he had a stoke, went to work the following morning.
He was taken to the hospital and is alive, with minor side effects.
My mother has been hysterical for 2 days.

I have been thinking realistically, I know he probably should have died and that does make me sad, but he lived.

Should we not celebrate someone surviving, if not what do we celebrate?

Over the last year as I studied history, war, and conspiracy I learned to detach from emotion,in order to make a sound decision.

Is my thinking logical, am I just holding in my emotion, or is my realistic thinking just not understood by those who can't do it?

I am 19.

Re: Dad had a stroke.
just get right with your old man before he does die.

he'll probably survive for a few more years yet, it was only a minor one, so you say, but get right with him.

i thought I was cold, detached as well. then the funeral came. not nice. not nice at all.

Re: Dad had a stroke.
First of all I want to tell you that I am truly sorry.

On April 9th my husband had an occluded stroke. He is 55. There are no physical deformities, he was just using the wrong words. My dumb ass thought he was just having some weird mood. The next day it was ovbious he had a stroke. To this day he doesn't really acknowledge he had a stroke. The part of his brain that it hit affected his speech and memory. Life has been very hard since this happened. Your dad may seem ok and I hope he is but I urge you to get him into speech and occupational therapy. Things not immediately recognizable may come out in the weeks to come and the sooner he gets the therapy the more it will help him.

As for your emotional state, who would be thinking right at this time? I hope you have an easier time than I am having. I hope your dad has a full recovery. My prayers will be with you. You might look up stroke support groups, they have a wealth of imformation.

Make sure the Dr.s tell you how deep the stroke went, what parts of the brain were effected and what type of stroke it was. This is really important. With that knowledge you can google and learn a lot of things. I have.

God speed and remember to breathe.

Prayers for your husband as well as OP's father. My husband had a stroke in early February and is almost back to normal. He's 71. I know how hard it is to deal with.hf
