Veteran calypsonian Penguin (Sedley Joseph) is almost fully recovered from a slight stroke he suffered three weeks ago, his wife Rosslyn said yesterday.

She said Joseph, a former president of Tuco, was at Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mount Hope, for a week after he suffered what was the third stroke earlier this month.

“He’s coming along well, but is still a bit weak,” she said during a telephone interview.

Rosslyn said doctors told her the strokes were caused by a blood-clot problem.

She said Joseph had problems hearing after the strokes, but had recovered to the point where he could carry on a verbal conversation.

Tuco president Michael Legerton said the prayers of his organisation was with the Joseph family and wished Penguin a speedy recovery.

“We don’t know much about his condition, but the family has our full support,” he said.
