    Here's hoping Tim recovers very, very soon. :frown:

    Now they're saying that it wasn't a stroke.

    It sounds like it might just be a TIA [transient ischemic attack], which is usually a minor event. I sure hope so.

    It seems more severe than a TIA.

    My thoughts are with his wife and children.

    I wish a speedy recovery.

    My father has a similar condition, and he experience a TIA in 1987. He recovered fully, but it's always been there, and could rupture again at some point. But life goes on.
