First things first

 

FIL's stroke was a brain stem stroke[?]. Got to the hospital too late to mitigate damage. The good news... he's being discharged -- this afternoon. Has a bit of a hitch in his gait.. but... He seemed to enjoy the attention from the nurses... as long as they were female.

Thank to all for the thoughts/prayers!

 

Oldtimer --- never ate squirrel

Cremated eggs are bad. Every blow up a potato?  They're pretty bad.

The popcorn stink is still lingering.

 

I've had a busy day. Started out with normal things. Vac and empty the vac. Then I went up on the roof to do a patch. Came down and had to launder my clothes. Threw them in the machine and all it did was make noise. Oh great?!? A plastic "fuse" in the drive broke... Easy fix, but still have to pull the motor/pump and install the part, which I have/had several. Wife has learned about overloading... I  went to our salvage yard and pulled 3 or 4 when I had the opportunity... so, I had parts.Then it rained. The roof patch was successful.

Then I fried some chicken....

Don't know what that means, would imagine it's better than going to the brain ? A hitch is a small price to pay, he got off easy it seems.

Same as me. I dunno about that stuff. He's home now. Wife is talking to him on the phone. To say the least, we are all most pleased.

Thank God that he survived and is back home.

Yeah, I'm amazed at how well he's doing.

 

Weather right now... 75` sunny and raining.

Sun is setting and it's shining under the little cloud that is raining on us. If you are west of us a few... be a dandy rainbow.

I would suspect that a brain stem stroke could be very serious, because that’s a very basic component of our brain, maybe the doorway to the spinal column.  Strokes in the brain can cause various cognitive issues, but I’d think that if the brain stem was badly damaged, it could cause a shutdown of everything above it.

 

But I’m not a doctor, and that’s just a guess.  If your father-in-law is able to walk almost normally, that’s great news!  I hope he continues to improve.

that's kinda what I thought, too. Was telling wife that portion of the brain deals with autonomous functions, like breathing.  He seems to be doing better than I would have expected.... not complaining... just surprised

I get updates from wife thru her sister...  prolly no new news until this evening.

I credit his speedy recovery with a little help from my friends

thank again.

 Kinda feels like a nice summer morning in IN. Moist and a little cool. My rolling papers [interleaved] have turned to toilet paper. Pull one and the rest trail out.  They just peel apart, until it dries out. That doesn't look to be happening for a few days. 60% chance of precip today/tomorrow... Flash Flood Watch thru tomorrow.

 

Fried chicken last night. Need to do something with the other half... I have an idea. Not a recipe... This could be interesting.  Chicken chili. Green chile sauce with  pinto beans. We will see.

Wow, not sure what I would have done if you didn't tell us that.  This isn't facebook and we don't need to know everything you do.  No picture, so really didn't happen anyway.  LMAO

How are things in N.C.?  Hope all is well.

Hello Bill

Just a follow up. Me and “The Big Guy” had a conversation in regards to Albert and this is how it went :

I started off saying that I didn’t know Albert or yourself but that didn’t really matter. What did matter was Albert was currently having an issue that I was asking that He look into. I started with asking that He give Albert love & understanding.... He stopped me right there and just smiled, (that Big O’l God Smile) which means “thank you for caring and I hear you, I am very fond of Albert and the family, I’ve got this”

No.  I stand on my own, and I won't name names either.  Plus, as all know, I have never snitched.  Capisce?

When have I ever said, I come here to get away from this stuff, when the record shows they have posted the same thing they say they wanted to get away from?  Get this straight.  I don't come here to get away from anything.  And I don't tie up the moderators time with petty (*****) complaints.

If i were complaining about others who complain to the moderators, while complaining to them myself, then I would be a pot calling the kettle black.  But ask any of them if I have ever done so.  Ask any of them if I have ever reported a post.  So don't even start with any insinuations to the contrary.

Dude.  Of course it's not at you.

It's more of a public service announcement.
