    Hey, ummm...
    I'm not usually one to post things like this, and I don't know if this is the right board for it (move if needed) but I don't have a lot of places where I post or chat or anything...

    My Dad just had a stroke this morning-it looks like it's not as bad as it could be...
    Please... please, if you could put him in your prayers?
    I hope I do not offend asking this just... I need a bit of hope right now, and maybe this will help, or grant him a little luck.
    -Sheng

    I send my prayers to your father. Also, may I ask you as to what his name is?

    My thoughts are with your dad and I wish your family the best. Strokes can be minor, so hopefully his was not that bad.

    I'll be praying for him. Did they give him any kind of medication to break up the clot?

    We have to be very careful about what medicines he's given, as he's diabetic and, like me, he has allergic reactions to many 'families' of medication. :( 

    We've gotten some word and he's coherent and they said it looks good thus far, waiting for results of the tests/scans.

    Update on my Dad:
    To all appearances and reports, what happened to Dad was a mini-stroke (ThankYouGodThankYouGodThankYouGod). He got worse for a while, but then started to improve until he was 90%+ his usual self. They're keeping him over night for observation but he should be able to come home in the morning. This is... my Dad's Dad died from a stroke, as did my Dad's Great Grandmother, it runs in the family and it's been all I can think of and remember when we realized what was going on, so for it to be this is... my heart can start beating again.
    Thank you everyone for your prayers. thank you so much!!

    Glad it turned out not to be severe, guy. Your dad's going to have to be careful from now on, though. Diabetes and related conditions like high cholesterol and high blood pressure predispose you to having strokes, so he must keep any and all of those under tight control. I hope he lives long and prospers.

    My uncle had a stroke a couple of days ago. Glad to hear that your Dad survived the mini-stroke.

    I'm sorry to hear about you Uncle, I hope he survived :( 

    Thank you again everyone for your prayers. My Dad should be coming home later today and when I saw him he was 90% normal, only rarely mumbling/slurring and walking normally (his limp was more pronounced but that could just be having been in the hospital bed for the night).

    He's home!!
    There's a faint slurr to his voice and one side of his lips are sagging a tiny bit but it's so faint the doctors didn't see it, though those who know him well can but still that is so GOOD...
    He's got his new medicines and will be on a diet w/ exercise to shed a few pounds/lower his blood pressure
    But he's HOME and alright...
    Thank you all again for keeping him in your prayers, thoughts and good wishes!
