Saturday Photo Hunt and Update

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO FIND THE LIST OF 
SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT WORDS
TODAY'S WORD IS

G A M E: PASTIME OR CONTEST

Mom's favorite pastime is teasing me
with the crinkle tops off the Brummel and brown
yogurt butter

Mom here:  Thank you all for your kind words and
prayers for my precious son in law.  I was with my 
daughter and son in law from Sunday until Wednesday.
Then return on Friday.  I will be home tonight. 
We  did not have time to arrange for a Diva sitter so
Madi and her Dad had a blast w/o me. LOL
I'm still finding confetti all over the place. (Just kidding)

He has continued to make steady progress over the week...gosh I cannot believe it has JUST been a week.
On Tuesday December 3rd he will have a procedure to 
place a stent into the artery to open it up.
Speculation is that he will be moved to the
Rehab unit next Wednesday where he will start
a intense 3 hour a day Physical and Occupational Therapy...not consecutive but
a total of 3 hours.  It is expected he will be there a 
month.

Hopefully we will get back to a semi normal posting and visiting routine around the middle of next week and will give you another update.
Hugs Madi and her Thankful Mom

HAPPY THANKSGIVING and update




HUGS 
MADI AND MOM
Mom here:
My son in law is making excellent progress. 
Long story short he had a stoke on Sunday.
He does not have any underlying problems to cause a stroke.
Over the last few weeks he has had a horrible cough due to allergies. All the severe coughing caused a tear in his carotid artery which caused a clot.
Thanks to excellent medical attention at his local hospital and then being transferred  to another excellent facility with more expertise in strokes.  The last few days he has gone from not being able to talk and having no feeling on his right side to talking yesterday. And today  he regained feeling on his right side and actually walking with the PT.  We are thankful for each and every small blessing w his progress and for you prayers.
