  3. It probably was only a matter of time.
    But, still, damn.
    The last giant in the Senate. Nobody's close.

    MSNBC says AP says a Kennedy source says its stroke-like symptoms.
  5. "Stroke-like symptoms"?

    Slurred speech and coordination problems?

    Yeah, let's not hit it. My mom had a stroke. My sister had a stroke. Ain't a laughing matter.
  8. CNN now saying surgery for a blocked artery in the neck.

    No, it's not a laughing matter. My dad went to the hospital with "stroke like symptoms" that turned out to be a stroke. But it could have been other things, too - infection, dehydration, etc.

    He had the surgery for the blocked artery in his neck a few months ago.
  10. Is he OK?
    I hope.
    What was the recuperation time, rehab involved, etc?

    Unfortunately, no, he's not OK. He died about a month ago, but it was unrelated to the stroke, even though that's what he was in the hospital for.

    For the stroke, though, the prognosis was good. He had receptive aphasia and although it was apparently a very big stroke, the neurologist said that with a month or so of rehab, he could have gotten a lot better.

    Thanks for asking.
