Thank the Lord for Richard who is so willing to cover for me. I so appreciate the kids who have sacrificially taken time away from their jobs to be with their dad. Please pray for them.
Today Dick's right hand is still paralyzed and his speech is still slurred. The speech therapist is teaching him to speak slower and more intentional, and the physical therapist will teach him how to use other parts of the brain to achieve his desired goal. So on the whole, he is recovering nicely and the doctors are pleased. Dick will need six weeks of recovery before being eligible for a heart, however his doctors will be more aggressive to find him a heart, because of the stroke.
Dick just asked, " Have you ever seen a three legged dog?"
|Answer: They learn to adapt and so will Dick.|
