    I had a Stroke a week ago on Thursday morning. Sandy
    rushed me into the emergancy ward. By the time the Dr.
    and nurses finished all the test and xrays we had a 10
    minute window to give me that new marical drug. Boy, that
    new stuff works fast. By thursday evening I could smile
    without having my face droop. Friday morning I could start
    lifting my arm and leg about a foot. Friday I could lift
    my arm and leg all the way.
    Saturday evening the Dr. sent me home.. I am still weak
    and walk with a cane. Can't drive yet so Sandy drives me
    when I have to go anyplace.

    Thanks for the info Chris, you can be sure that he's in our prayers. It's good to see, thanks to modern medicine, that he's doing better though.

    Keep us posted on his condition, will you please?
