My Dad just had a severe pons stroke and is paralized on both sides and unable to talk. It happend three days ago and we are comminucating with him through blinking somewhat successfully. He has full cognitive ability and can hear, see, and process information effectively. I am also interested in what is possible. 90% of his ponds was damaged by the stroke.

My father also had a "pons" brain stem stroke on 29th Sept 2012. He had a tracheostomy for 1 month. Now a PEG feeding tube is inserted in his stomach for giving him liquid diet. Can swallow only 2 spoons water on his own. Full paralysis is there except for head/neck movement.

Want to know how improvement has been with you. Badly need inspiration. Please share your story with us because I found your case similar to my dad.
