    This past Tuesday was a hectic as hell day, for my day off. My Mom and I ran errands, went to the doctor's office, and went everywhere short of the grocery store. We even looked at a cherry 1993 Toyota Truck for my Dad. We even all went out to dinner and had a good laugh as I accidentally dumped a LARGE soda over my Mom's lap. I mean, it was a BIG glass of soda! I even put a sheet I keep in the back of my car UNDER her so she didn't stain my seats.

    Then the rug was pulled out from under us.

    When we got home we got a call from my brother that he had gone to the hospital with numbness on the right side of his body. We were all immediate worried. Then, later in the evening we got another call. Even though the doctor's had doubted it the tests had come in positive for him having had a very SLIGHT yet significant stroke. He is only five years older then me, and I'm 29. He is ICU right now under close observation as there is a small lesion at the base of his brain and to watch for a possible second stroke. They can't give him any medications for it now, except for pain medication.

    I'm asking for prayers and positive vibes to be sent his way. He has two sons that need their Daddy, and wife who needs her husband. I've never asked for any for when I was down, and for my own litany of problems, but please pray for him. Thank you everyone for your support!

    My dad has had a few pin strokes, my mom has had at least 2.
    and each one, i don't care how minor, still scared the bejeezus outta me.
    so from that experience, you got my spiritual guns blazing.

    keep the faith, and it will keep you, ok?

    oeace.

    Prayers are going man. "Slight" strokes in younger, and particularly if caught early, have a pretty good recovery rate.
