    I had a stroke at 53. Therapies, sleep, and wanting to recover are key. Luckily mine was in the right frontal lobe - a "safe" place in your brain. Mine was a brain bleed, but got me a month in the best hospital in Washington State, seizures the year after the stroke, and now I'm back to my job full time. Best of luck. Sleep lots! The brain recovers during the sleep. And take naps when you are released from the hospital. My prayers are with you.

    Prayers for your recovery , Luke. May you believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; that He came died for the sins of the world. Arose from the dead and is seated at the right-hand of the Father; and lives in those (us) who accept Him as their Savior, are blessed with His Holy Spirit. "In the name of Jesus Christ, Luke Perry be healed by the Holy Spirit and cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ!" Amen!
