My dad calls the long talks old people give about their health "organ recitals." (Now you know where I get my sense of humor from).
Surprisingly, the old dude is okay. I would say he has 90% of his speech and memory back. Pretty shocking considering that they couldn't even give him any treatment.
The standard treatment for stroke is blood thinners. But last time they gave him coumadin, several years ago, he suffered massive bleeding everywhere and it almost killed him. He spent months sitting in his recliner, barely moving, losing weight.
I went to work today and worried all day. My brother-in-law called about 3 pm and said he had spoken to Dad and that he made perfect sense.
Suddenly the clouds parted and they day grew a little brighter.
Thanks for all the wishes and prayers. I love you people!
And now - go Diamondbacks. I have fear.
