On May 8, my father checked into a clinic after feeling weakness on the left side of his body.  The clinic referred him to a hospital where he was diagnosed with a stroke.  He stayed in hospitals for a little over two weeks.

He returned home on May 25, but he is still not feeling very well.  He still needs a walker to help him get around and needs help from some simple tasks that he was able to do earlier.  For example, he cannot pour himself anything to drink or reach out if an object is placed far away from him.

My father begins outpatient therapy tomorrow.  Please keep praying for him and a full recovery. Smiley

I apologize to all of you for not telling you any of this earlier.  Thank you.
