84. Whacked his head but good on US Airays flight

Don't dismiss it... my brother whacked his head on a coffee table (bending low to pick up something, hit it on his way up).

That night or the next he had a nasy headache.

His wife found him on the floor the next morning. Still alive, but apparently the whacking on the table started an internal bleed, the equivalent of a strok.

He spent a month in the hospital and, a year later, is still recovering. Most, but not all funtionality recoverd. Still disabled in one limb, and some cognition and visual limitions.

Had she not found him, and bleeding continued, he could well be dead.

So maybe it was the bump.
