Feeling Lost

I am new to this --My husband of 33 years is 56 years old and he had a severe stroke on December 27, 2005--he is paralyzed on his right side-arm, leg, throat and is still in a hospital under observation. He has not gotten any worse but has not improved much either--not being treated with meds--will have another MRI/CT scan done in 3 more weeks to determine his condition. I feel so hopeless and useless regarding his condition and petrified of our financial future as I had to leave my job due to transporation problems-he will get Short Term Disability payments & possibly SS disability pending his outcome. Would appreciate any feedback from anyone who is in a similar situation. Thank You.

Welcome. Sorry to hear of your husband's stroke. I'm not sure that anyone on this board can help you but we do have several other boards that you may find helpful.
