kfen is an unknown quantity at this point


Yeah, that is what i thought. He did not have a stroke but an intracranial bleed.
A blood vessel or maybe even a vain burst when or just before he fell(aneurysm,maybe). When you have a stroke, part of the vail is blocked so there is no oxygen to the brain in that area, almost always lasting damage.

With an intracranial bleed, you "leak" blood into the skull and that causes pressure on the brain. That is why they needed to drill into his skull. To let the blood out.
This usually has no lasting effect, IF the doctors were fast enough...

Serious cudo's to the doctors if they figured it out in time.....
