My mom had a stroke about 2 years ago. I walked in on her laying on the floor talking nonsense and unresponsive. It was pretty scary. Not to dim the lights further, but she has never been the same since. It wasn't bad enough to cause any paralyisis but she isn't the same person anymore. I'm really sorry blue, this is very untimely and quite a shock. A good friend of mine, his mom died in a car wreck not too long ago and well... I know I can't call you a friend blue, however, this was still a shock. If there was anything I could do to make things better, I would. You might not want to hear this, but if it is a really serious stroke like you say. She's probably better off if she dosen't survive it. I hate saying that, but it really is true. My thoughts go out to you, and I'll yell at God for being a dick. Be strong Blue, you and your wife need each other right now, find solace in her. Thats really the only advice I can give.
