On my birthday, when there was flooding in my area, there also was another disaster that is still affecting me now.
My wife’s father had a stroke!
She quickly got on a plane to go see him. Being a nurse, she makes a great watchdog and patient advocate – you definitely want my wife batting for you if you’re in the hospital!
Well she is still away and I have been playing Mr. Mom since.
Sad to say Phil’s prognosis doesn’t look good. It looks like half of his brain got fried during the week following the stroke.
The left side of his body is useless and they are trying to get him to rehab.
It has made this Christmas pretty tough.
