6 months later, an additional MRI confirmed that it was indeed a brain stem stroke
. The day he had the stroke
, he had first slipped on something and
fallen, got up walked a ways to a restroom and after sitting down, he couldn't get back up again as his right side had gone numb. Once someone helped him to get up, he again felt ok and got up walked around, then once the ambulance laid him down to go to the hospital, his right side was paralized again, not to return without extensive therapy.
