Coughing and Drooling

My dad still coughs too often throughout the day and night except for when he is sleeping. He is still not able to eat, drink, or talk. The strokes really also affected his abilities to use his tongue and open his mouth. Last year from his first hospitalization, I was able to help him get rid of his coughing after about 3 months and constant drooling after 7 months. I wonder if his coughing and drooling is ever going to go away this second time.
