Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry about your dad. That's so upsetting, I'm sure. My aunt had a debilitating stroke. She was inpatient in hospital for about a month and then moved to a recovery center/rehabilitation center for 6. That probably scares you to think it was that long. Every person is different and people do recover from strokes and at their own rate. Once home, her life was a bit different. She used a walker and was very tired. However, she got better and better until her death about 4 years later. It is not at all uncommon to be extremely fatigued the first few days post stroke. What is his care team saying regarding his condition and prognosis?
