"my husband had a brain stem stroke two weeks ago. It wasn't diagnosed although we told doctors we thought he was having a stroke, so I am very upset. He cannot move anything other than eyes, and can cough and swallow some. His breathing is not great and needs an oxygen mask. The doctors are definitely wanting him to go, e.g., let a chest infection "take him" in their words. We asked that he be fed by naso gastric tube -- against the doctors wishes, so he is having food. I get these small glimmers of hope that he could improve, but mainly it seems he will die. It is a living nightmare for him and us all. He is 48 and we have a 13 year old daughter."
