Papa


Last night, my precious father had a stroke.
Its not "massive", except for in the expectation that the first stroke is typically just that-
The First.

My best wishes are with you, Joyce. (Especially since your last post revealed so many similarities to me. :) My dad had his first stroke two weeks after 9/11 and has been hospitalised with two more since then. The big achievement is that last week, for the first time, he actually admitted that he's had them! :) (That's a result of his personality, not the strokes...) Fortunately your dad has your mother there 24/7, right? My dad will be 80 soon and is still somewhat mobile, so there's probably plenty of gas (and years) left in your dad's engine.

Sorry Joyce, praying.

Joyce said...

dad has regained most of the left side. Mom is doing well, we are finding much to laugh about, all of us together again. I am stewing on how to carve out some time in my ridiculous lifestyle.

I'm sorry about the stroke Joyce but happy to hear that your dad has regained most of his left side. Take care of yourself.

This is too much, too soon for you, me, or anyone Joyce. We heard all about how amazing your Dad is.

You just have to believe that a tour de force like your Father is all that he can be and has plenty of time left to spend with you and your family and do the things that he loves. Apparently static is not in his vocabulary.

Hug your kids and absorb some tlc on Muthaz Day.

Oh, Joyce!

I will pray, too.

My dad has had a few. He is doing amazingly well.

Joyce, I will pray that your dad fully recovers from this. I am so sorry to hear about this, I hope you are doing well. Give me a call, I can easily find somebody to take Carly next week.

Just wanted you to know that I was here.

"This is too much, too soon for you, me, or anyone Joyce."

I love that people read this post and say anything, rather than nothing.

It feels like too much, and in the words of my bro; "I wish life would slow down so I could catch up"...
