Some of you Im sure have noticed my absence of late. And sadly its once again due to my trouble with my family and their health, and worse my wife's as well. You will remember that Ive had to deal with my father's recent illness which robbed him of his muscle motor control and how for months I attended to him at home. No he hasnt had a relapse and worsened from that. In fact he had been making great strides in his recovery. But this past week he's suffered another blow. He has had a mild heart attack. Unfortunately he didnt understand the danger he was in and didnt seek treatment for 3 days. So the damage done is possibly more severe than it should have been. He couldnt be properly treated due to fluid around his heart for several days. They put in stints to deal with 3 blockages but his heart remained in A-Fib. Which means while part of his heart has a proper rhythm, one portion continues to spasm leaving him weak. He has been sent home one a regimen of blood thinners for 4-6 weeks which will hopefully ease any pain he's got and help to correct the sinus rhythm of his heart. So now once again we are left waiting and worrying to see how things will go.
On top of this wife's father may have experienced a mild stroke but it could be Bell's Palsy. We wont know about that till Thursday though as the doctor had to do an emergency surgery today making our trip to the hospital pointless. So once again I must ask you my friends to lend us your prayers once again during this trying time.
