Hey, guys and girls, just wanted to ask you to remember my best friends dad if you would. He has had a couple of light strokes, and last week they put him in the hospital because of complications from the last one. I got an e-mail from my friend Fri, tellng me that the blood thinners they have been giving him has caused the plaque in his blood vessels to turn loose and float, and he has lost the use of his left arm and leg due to this. She sent me a text message this morning just before church and told me that they had moved him to ICU because of infection and pneumonia, he's in really bad shape. The docs had already told them to expect him to have another stroke soon, and that it would be a massive one, that there wasn't much they could do for him now.... These folks are like family to me, and I can't even turn loose to go be with them. They live 5 hours from me, and mom and dad left for two weeks to go on buying trip, meaning I've got to be here to keep it running....sigh...Thanks all !
