My Dad Had a Stroke

2:04 PM Katy 13 Comments

Thankfully it could have been a lot worse, and he's going to recover. A little therapy and he'll have the full use of his hand back (I hope)...which is kinda important for a guy who's a mechanic.

Getting that call at work did bring one thing into sharp focus: I am not ready. I still need him so much, in so many ways. I go to him for plumbing instruction and life advice -- what will I do when I have no one left to ask those questions? He taught me how to use all of my tools! He taught me not to be afraid of anything! He takes my boys to Cub Scouts!

He's the only man that I could ever depend on.

We're going to the store tonight to stock up on Grandpa's favorite cashews.

  3. I'm so sorry. My dad had four heart attacks, four small strokes, a quintuple bypass and cancer before he died.

    I understand the fear you have right now. You're in my prayers.

  4. Thinking of you. Sick parents are tough to deal with. If you got your spunk from your dad, I suspect he'll be just fine. Hugs!
