Mechanicsburg, PA (April 14, 2020) — Neil Enloe of The Couriers is recovering at home after suffering a major stroke on March 12, 2020.
According to friend Cliff Cerce, Neil had to undergo emergency surgery because of a large clot in the largest blood vessel of his brain. He spent about two weeks in the hospital, then two more weeks in a rehab facility. Neil was unable to have visitors there because of the coronavirus pandemic, so his family was very glad when he was able to come home on Thursday, April 9.
On April 10, his son Tim posted the following update:
Dad came home yesterday, exactly one month after his stroke. We are so thankful to God for this and for your prayers.
He is doing well, still not able to speak more than an occasional word—perhaps a few total per day. He is strong and mobile, even walking steps.
We ask that you please do not send him text messages, emails or Facebook messages because they have really piled up in the last month. We do not want to add to his frustration.
Thanks for your continued prayers and love. We are inexpressibly grateful for you all.
Please continue to pray for the return of his speech and function in his right hand.
Prayers are appreciated for Neil, his wife Ruth, and the rest of the family as Neil continues to recover.
