right.... although, stress and illness can affect hair pigmentation and growth. so the shock the old man (full head of dk brown hair) felt on finding his wife on the floor in the midst of a medical emergency, then the stress and fear of waiting in the ER, and then during the long subsequent surgery, and then the recovery period, during which time, he's now (6 months later) very grey. some of it happened overnight, some of it took awhile.
