My dear father-in-law made it to the stroke unit and was starting rehab but was having trouble with secretion in his lungs, the doctors tried twice to put him in the stroke unit but both times he would have sever breathing difficulty and they would have to move him back to ICU and put him back on Ventilator.  He now has pneumonia and has been found to have TB also. Today his BP dropped dangerously low and his temp high.  I believe he is a very strong man and is a fighter. He has a great family that are all focused on getting him better and getting him home.
