The hockey world is holding its breath for “Mr. Hockey.”
Gordie Howe has suffered a serious stroke and has lost much of his right arm and right leg, and his speech is now slurred.
The 86-year-old legend already suffers from dementia.
The stroke happened Sunday night while in his home in Texas.
His son says he’s struggling to talk due to serious paralysis and can’t get out of bed without assistance.
“The stroke kind of came out of nowhere,” said his son, Dr. Murray Howe, a radiologist.
“Mr. Hockey” set NHL records with 801 goals and 1,850 points, which stood strong until Wayne Gretzky surpassed him in the record book.
