You may find that there is no designated playbook - every patient is different. You can probably count on your husband needing your support. In the hospital, take the time to ask doctors questions regarding procedures and medications. Afterward, taking him to and from doctor appointments is really the minimum. He may need your help keeping track of symptoms so that you can discuss his progress with the doctors, changing his diet possibly, all sorts of things. There's a pretty good book called My Stroke of Insight that may help.
Best of luck.
