Agree. Glad he's got family and friends around to help him as well.

This baffled the hell out of me though. I just told the hubby that if I'm ever on the floor unable to move, please take me to the hospital instead of calling his mother to help (she's a nurse). He replies with "Duh."

The 26-year-old defenseman was found by his wife on the floor the morning he had the stroke; he was preparing to leave for Pittsburgh's road trip to Los Angeles. He was conscious, but his body was not functioning properly.

His wife did not call for paramedics as his mother-in-law, who is a nurse, treated him. Letang traveled to Los Angeles with his mother thinking his symptoms would clear, but "it never did."
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
