Four years ago today, November 24, 2013, at 10:30 am, my precious
daughter called us to tell us that her husband, who had just celebrated his 42nd bday on 11/22/13, had a stroke and he was being transported by ambulance from their home to Greenville, NC, the Vidant Medical Center, part of East Carolina University's Medical College.
We got dressed and headed to Greenville. I quickly
posted the below on Madi and Mom's blog.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING and update
MADI AND MOM
My son in law is making excellent progress.
Long story short he had a stoke on Sunday.
He does not have any underlying problems to cause a stroke.
Over the last few weeks he has had a horrible cough due to allergies. All the severe
coughing caused a tear in his carotid artery which caused a clot.
Thanks to excellent medical attention at his local hospital and then being transferred
to another excellent facility with more expertise in strokes. The last few days he has
gone from not being able to talk and having no feeling on his right side to talking
yesterday. Today he regained feeling on his right side and actually
walking with the PT. We are thankful for each and every small blessing w his progress and for you prayers.

I am so thankful to say my precious son in law with the help
of God, excellent doctors, 3 months of Physical Therapy and a devoted and loving wife, my daughter, made a full recovery. By April 2014 he was back a work and continues to thrive and live and love.
He is Dad to my grand kitties Mia and Frisco
