I must have missed this thread at some point, so I thought this had just happened until I noticed the dates!
Glad your on the mend. A mate of mine had a stroke that put him in a coma for 2 weeks, he was only 18 and his outlook wasn't good. He went on to make a full recovery which took about a year.
I'm not religious but next time out with friends I'll raise a glass to your full recovery!
