My Precious Dad

Many of you know that my Dad had a stroke a little over a week ago. That is why I am so behind on my blogs. The doctors did not expect him to make it through last Wednesday night and he has pulled through. He is still in the hospital and is slowly recovering. He doesn't have feeling or movement on his left side. He isn't able to swallow on his own. He is going through therapy to help regain these things. I have been going to visit and stay three nights in a row and then rejoin my family for a couple of days of rest.

I am so grateful for the special times that I have been able to spend with Daddy over the last week. My Dad and I have always loved each other but haven't always known how to build a deeper relationship. My parents divorced when I was young and my Mom remarried when I was five. Who knew that a stroke would bring my Daddy and I this close. I hate that he has to go through this but am glad for our times together.
