Brian had a large vessel stroke on Thursday morning. He is in the hospital. He regained the ability to use his arms and legs quickly however, his writing and speaking skills are severely impaired. He has difficulty talking and writing his thoughts.
The hospital should be sending him home from the hospital today or tomorrow but Terry will email updates as she has them.
Man, this just sucks. I think this would be a good time for us to do something for a brother. Please let us know what we can do Michelle and if its funds, I will help out. Did he contribute to Nachi Nickles?
I’m so sorry to hear this, my thoughts are with Brian and his family.
One quick way that I heard of just recently to check if someone is having/had a stroke is to ask them to stick out their tongue, if it is anything other than straight, like slanting or drooping, it is a sign of a stroke. Thanks for the link Micheal, always useful to remind people of the things you need to do in an emergency such as this.
For those that may not know Brian as personally as I do:
Brian is my competition, but he is a great inspector and a wealth of knowledge. I do refer work to him from time to time. He has been inspecting for a long time and has always been helpful on this message board. He is also a class act, when I “stole one of his Realtors” he was kind enough to tell her some good things about me. I wish him a speedy recovery.
