My husband had a stroke Jan.19, 2009. He has been very blessed. His main problem is expessive aphasia. I don’t even know where to start to get help for him. He can make some sentences. He seemed better a few days ago. We have speech therapy lined up for next week but do I need to get videos or other things to help? Is there a time line I need to be on? Am I pusing too soon? He is the pastor of our church and very computer oriented. He played the piano, too. He is struggling with all this. Would the piano be therapy for him? His stroke was due to high blood pressure. He is taking medicine now for this. I’m just not sure what to do?

But you’ve already done the only important thing: you have a speech therapist coming to see him. I hope you saved a copy of this post to the forum so she/he can read it. I wouldn’t be a responsible professional if I told you what you need or can do. I will tell you that all of your ideas are good ideas. Which of them will help your husband should be the judgement of the professional who evaluates him.
