Yesterday my FIL had a massive stroke. He works in an area where he's all alone and they think he must have had the stroke around 1pm. He wasn't found until 3:30pm, by a trucker who stopped to pick up shingles. We rushed over there when it went over the scanner. He was air lifted to one of the bigger hospitals in Cincinnati. Prayers would be greatly appreciated. His name is Randy. Nickname: Rogue. Right now he still can't feel his left arm at all and can barely wiggle his left toes. Can't feel or move his left leg. He CAN talk and it doesn't seem to have affected his speech or memory. So, it was the right side of the brain that was impacted. His mom had a stroke that put her in a wheelchair for the rest of her life and couldn't really talk again. It's scary. We're going back up later today and family has been staying with him. I ask for prayers that he'll be able to use his left leg in time. I think the arm he could handle but not being able to walk would really kill him. He's not really a happy person anyway and we worry that this will just make things a lot worse. It's sad. And, prayers that he won't suffer another stroke. He's still in ICU but is now breathing on his own. It's just a bad situation. Prayers definitely needed. Thank you.
