Hello PSers,
My father had a stroke last December. It was a surprise because he is so healthy. A big, scary,unsettling surprise. I didn''t write about this earlier because ...well, the last couple of months have been a blur with helping out, work, appointments, vet visits (one of the furbabies had an issue) and such. Goodness, I miss the days of getting at least 7 hours of sleep.
Wedding planning has been moved to the backburner for now. Future DH who has always been wonderful with my parents, has been exceptional during this time. He has been helping out so much and been such a pillar for me...gosh, there are no words. If there was a "Through Thick and Thin" Care Bear, it would be my future DH.

Dad''s recovery has been encouraging and - I am happy to say--he is going for his first outpatient speech therapy evaluation tomorrow! And, that is why I am writing today. The first six months are the most crucial for recovery we have been told. Dad''s progress has been good so far and I hope it continues with the outpatient therapy. As such, I hope Dad''s therapists are supportive and conducive to the recovery process. Please send dust to my Dad for continued healing, wonderful therapists and strength. And, if there is any leftover dust, maybe a little for me and future DH to keep all the balls we are juggling going.

Anita - TONS of dust headed towards your dad for a continued excellent recovery, and also for you and your DH and the rest of your family that is supporting him during this time - it takes a lot of strength to do that, and I''m sure your support and love has really helped him through this difficult time.

Lots of dust sweetie. I know how scary it is to see one of your parents ill.

You''re doing a great job though, if that''s any consolation

Hello,
I wanted to provide a quick update: Dad likes the new therapist and she is giving him lots of "homework"... this actually makes me feel a little more reassured. And, Dad, is so cute. He is taking his homework seriously. Thank you for all the dust.

Prayers for you, your DH, your Dad, and the whole family. May your Dad receive excellent care and make great progress. And may you be able to finally breathe a deep sigh and get some much needed rest. Bless you.
