A Bit of News
I am just popping in quickly to share a bit of news. I will be away from the computer for the next couple of days - so thought I would do it now. Tomorrow is our MS walk and on sunday my sweet daughter is taking me to see PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!!! I am so excited - I just can't tell you. It has been years since I've seen a musical. I just love them but haven't had the opportunity to go in a very long time. It is my Christmas present from her. I cannot wait! How I love the music. It was the perfect present for me.

We spent yesterday at the hospital with my Dad again. The numbness returned and was worse. He felt just awful, so we took him to the ER. The doctor ordered an MRI of his brain this time, and it showed that he had indeed had a slight stroke. They kept him overnight and discharged him this morning with perscriptions for a strong type of aspirin and cholesterol medication. He is to make an appointment with his doctor and with a neurologist for next week.

He looked fine this morning - just tired. You don't get to sleep much in the hospital. My Mom is totally worn out too. So we took them home and quickly left so they could both take a nap.

We are relieved to finally have some answers and thankful that it was a mild stroke. God is good. Thank you for all of your prayers on our behalf. I really hope to get back to normal next week and visit everyone. If I have a bit of time on sunday I'll try to visit then.

I am glad your dad is ok, and that you have some answers.

Praying the MS walk goes well.

I am so thankful we could support you in a small way. God is good and we continue to pray for Todd and his family.

Enjoy your fun weekend!! We'll be here when you are able to return!...

Linda I'm happy you know what is going on with your dad. Now Doctors and move forward with treatment.
I also understand you mom is tired. My dad was taken back to the hospital yesterday too. He is now in ICU. Mom is so tired she may drop soon too. But you just can't get a love one to rest.

I didn't get to check yesterday on how your Dad's appointment went on Thursday... I'm so sorry he had additional complications, but am thankful he's getting some answers. I'm praying for REST for both of your sweet parents.

I'm thinking of you so much today during your walk! I hope it goes well! Love you!!

I'm just catching up with your posts and see you've had a lot of difficult things to deal with lately. I'm so glad to hear your dad has been diagnosed and now will get the proper treatment. I pray he and your mom will find rest and be able to rebuilt their strength.
I hope the MS walk goes well and that you have good weather for it.
I know you'll have a wonderful time at 'Phantom' with your daughter. What a thoughtful present :)
