I'm a dedicated atheist, so I can't exactly pray or anything. I also don't deal with trolls of sub-mammalian intelligence, so I'm not gonna deal with that bloody idiot either.
Had a friend have a massive stroke a year ago. Initial prognosis and appearance were absolutely horrific. Over the last year, though, she's improved incredibly - far beyond her doctor's expectations. She's still not the girl she used to be, but she's alive and kicking, and she's still -her-, she's still in there.
The brain is the ultimate computer, it has incredible powers of self-repair. Don't be discouraged by initial appearances, it's the first 18 months that count most and improvement can be radical.
Blue, I hope for the best, and you and your family have got my sympathy and understanding. It's a bloody difficult time.
Take care mate.
