why can't he talk so good...

He woke up and wondered
Why he couldn't talk so good
He was having trouble
In the speech neighborhood
He thought he bit his tongue
He didn't know what it was about
I wanted him to call the doctor
It made me mad and want to shout
Well, he finally did
And an MRI was done
He suffered a small stroke
And that's why his speech came undone
He is happy to know
That is what it was
And now he'll keep talking
Until his speech is the way it twas

*pic of me in the car waiting and wondering what is wrong with my husband*

Happy he did get to see the doctor and get a diagnosis. Now on the road to recovery. I will keep you in my prayers.
Be safe,

You must have been awfully worried Lynn, at least now you both know what the problem is and deal with it. Sometimes the wondering and worrying are unbearable, as I'm sure you know. Speedy recovery for your hubby.
Hugs, Laura
