A close family member is 82 and had a massive stroke a week ago. He suffered one about 7 years ago and lost his ability to speak. Now, he is non-responsive and rarely if ever opens his eyes. He has been hospitalized since the stroke a week ago.
He has a feeding tube since he cannot eat, sit up, walk, and is unresponsive.
We have him in our prayers, but the doctors and nurses are saying that the prognosis doesn't appear positive.
Do you think he has a chance of survival? And if he does survive, will he be in this type of state the rest of his life?
