A Bad Day

Today did not go at all as planned.

My brother from Florida was up and we were going to have an cookout as a family. I drove up to Mom and Dad's place and was there about 20 minutes when Mom was giving Dad something to eat.

Suddenly he went into a seizure. The ambulance was called and he was taken into the hospital.

At the moment we have no idea what has happened, but there are several possibilities, most of them not-good-at-all.

Prayers will be appreciated.

Thanks for the prayers everyone.

I have not yet learned what happened but he is doing better than I expected him to, though I really can't say is doing "good" he doesn't appear to be doing badly.

There was "new" damage in the same area as his original stroke, they have him on new meds for the seizures and has not had another since Sunday afternoon. He is still talking the same and has a little more droop on his right eye, otjer than that he is doing as well as can be expected
