Prayers for a friend
Monday, March 03, 2014
I only lost a little over 3 pounds in February. I had a med change which caused 4 weeks of daily migraines. I also went out of town for a weekend and it took me a few days to get my food back on track. I'm close to 10 lbs. gone so I'm happy about that. I'm shooting for 8 lbs. lost in March.
A teacher friend of mine collapsed at school on Thurs. We had conferences that week and since we had worked 3 nights we were done at noon on Thurs. Thankfully he was still at school so someone could call for help (he lives alone). He suffered a stroke and was flown from our local hospital to a larger hospital a couple hours away. They discovered he had a torn carotid artery which caused the stroke. He was sent home on Sat. with blood thinners, told not to move much and no work for at least 3 weeks. Yesterday he had another stroke at home and was again life flighted to the larger hospital. As of last night we were told he had lost most of his speech. As of this afternoon we were told he would be in ICU another day or two to watch for further clots. He will eventually go to rehab. He's only 46 and teaches kids with special needs. Please pray or send positive thoughts for his full recovery.
