This is Dr. David

does he have a history of prior alcohol use?

slurred speech and stumbling are not good signs

he could have had a stroke which is injury to part of his brain from a blood clot

best to call up 911

get an ambulance there and take him to the ER right away for evaluation.

he needs to see an ER doctor right away for testing, blood test, EKG, brain scan
