Co­me­di­an Tom­my Joseph is rest­ing at home since his dis­charge from hos­pi­tal two weeks ago af­ter be­ing hos­pi­talised with a stroke, but is said to be frus­trat­ed.
This was con­firmed to the Guardian Me­dia by Joseph’s wife, Judy.
Judy said her hus­band still can­not walk as his mo­bil­i­ty was af­fect­ed by the stroke.
"He can­not walk so he does have to go to the phys­io­ther­a­pist and we have a doc­tor that would nor­mal­ly come to check him once a week be­cause it’s re­al dif­fi­cult to get him about."
Just be­fore he was dis­charged from the hos­pi­tal, Judy said her hus­band was pre­sent­ed with a cheque by a group of young co­me­di­ans to as­sist with the af­ter­care and af­ter-med­ical ex­pens­es.
Pro­ceed­ings, she said, were raised dur­ing two fundrais­ing events one of which was host­ed by Joseph’s close friend and col­league Na­tal­ie Morales.
"The pub­lic has been very help­ful. Na­tal­ie as you know did her fundrais­er and then there were these young co­me­di­ans with Je­re­my. They did a fundrais­er too and they pre­sent­ed the mon­ey to him in the hos­pi­tal. So we’re ral­ly­ing with that," Judy said.
Asked how Joseph is far­ing since his re­turn home, Judy replied: "He’s frus­trat­ed."
"He’s a lit­tle frus­trat­ed. How I should put it? He’s frus­trat­ed be­cause he can’t move and as ex­pect­ed any­body that was mo­bile and now im­mo­bile it will be re­al frus­trat­ing," Judy said.
Joseph was hos­pi­talised af­ter suf­fer­ing a stroke in Au­gust and had surgery done where he re­mained in hos­pi­tal for sev­er­al more weeks un­til his dis­charge.
