Pampered Chef: Please Keep My Dad in Prayer

    My mom just called. Dad's in the hospital.

    About 5 a.m. Dad woke up from a nightmare. He fell getting out of bed and called out to Mom. (They sleep in separate rooms.) He said there was someone in bed with him. She assumed that was part of his dream. It wasn't. He has no feeling on the left side of his body. He had reached over with his right hand and felt his left arm, but since there was no feeling in that arm it seemed to belong to someone else.

    He can walk, and he can lift his left arm. He can't really use his hand, though. She took him to the ER, and they've put him in a room. They don't know if he's had a stroke, is getting ready to have a stroke, or is experiencing heart trouble.

    He's in good spirits--joking with the nurses. He's 86 years old with a history of small strokes and coronary problems, so it could be just about anything. No one seems overly concerned, though.

    Thanks for the prayers.

    I will definitely keep your family, especially your dad, in my prayers. Hopefully they will find out what is going on and all can breath a little easier.

    Thanks for the prayers. Talked with Mom and Dad both. They have an MRI schedule for later today. They know he has some narrowing of the carotid artery. They're scheduling surgery for tomorrow to take care of that. Everyone is sure he'll be just fine. I'd appreciate your continued prayers, though. As I said before, he's 86 and in good, but not excellent, health.

    He's beginning to get feeling back in his arm, which is a really good sign and makes him feel much better.

    Just heard from Mom. Dad's surgery went well. The doctor told her that during the procedure the nurses were telling him some of the jokes Dad had been telling. He could be home tomorrow.

    Thanks for all the prayer.

    Thanks for the prayers. Dad's recovering well. He'll need to do some therapy to get full use of his hand back. It's a little weak. Other than that he's good.
