Unfortunately, I will be away from the blog for a few days. My father, who is five weeks from turning 87, had a serious stroke this morning. We’re going to head to my parents’ house tomorrow to do what we can to help. I will report back when I can. In the meantime, please keep my father in your prayers.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your father, Eric. Maryann’s mother will be 88 in December and has been living with us for the past five years. She has been in and out of the hospital several times in the past eight months, so I know the stress of caring for an elderly parent. Our prayers are with you.

    I hope all goes well.
    Peace.

    Stroke is boldly brushed in my recent family history. Best wishes to your father, and good luck to you as you forge your own healthy future.

    Eric,
    What more can I say? My prayers are with you and your family for sure. My father has Alzheimer’s so I can empathize with you having an ailing parent. Take care of him, and yourself.

    Eric,

    We can only hope all turns out well. I’ve been through this and will keep a good thought out for you.

    Thanks, everyone.

    He had a severe cerebral hemorrhage, but it missed the autonomic nervous system. He’s awake, alert, breathing on his own, but his right arm and leg are paralyzed, and he’s having a really difficult time trying to speak. Time will tell.

    The good news is that he was transferred out of the ICU today and into the stroke unit, and was able to resume eating solid food. The docs are pretty amazed that he’s doing well enough to do that considering the extent of the bleed.

    Eric

    Dear Eric,

    I have been on a church mission trip and have just this day read of your father’s condition (my own Dad is 88). You have my prayers for his recovery and for you and Susan as this will require emotional and spiritual strength of both of you.

    Please keep us all posted on his progress.

    Best wishes always,
    Lanny

    I have you and your family in my thoughts. I have been through that with my father (several stokes). I know the trouble you are going through and hope for a complete recovery.
