Update on my FIL

Just returned home from dinner at our co-workers (yes, it really is almost 3 a.m.) and we had an e-mail about my FIL. He had a stroke 2-3 days ago but because he's so unsteady on his feet anyway, my MIL did not realize there was a problem until today when dad couldn't feed himself because he couldn't get his right hand to work. After being taken by ambulance to the ER, dad was admitted to the hospital and will be there for several days after which he will probably need rehab. But the family is encouraged that he's already showing signs of improvement and was able to feed himself this evening. Thanks for your prayers and please keep praying!

My FIL had a stroke several years ago. It took him a few weeks to get back to normal but, it is amazing now what they can do as far as treatment for these kinds of things.

I will keep him in my prayers.

Blessings
