It apparently will be a long road to recovery for Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert, who suffered a serious stroke May 26.
"To be clear, Dan’s recovery is a process that will take time – but we are all confident that he will meet this challenge head on as he always does," Quicken CEO Jay Farner says in a statement posted on social media by the downtown Detroit company and the NBA team Gilbert owns, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
"Dan’s family is happy to share that he maintains his strong sense of humor and focus on constant improvement," the brief announcement adds. "In fact, a few days ago, Dan requested his favorite beverage. When the hospital staff informed him they were not able to provide it, in the humorous tone Dan is known for, he insisted that a review of the hospital’s beverage best-practices be completed."
No word on whether he asked for an alcoholic beverage.
Gilbert, 57, had a stroke after being taken to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak.
