I know many of you are wondering what happened with dad. Last week he suffered a stroke on the right side caused by previously undiagnosed atrial fibrillation. He was transported to the Heart Hospital in Little Rock Tuesday evening. He was put on medication to combat the atrial fibrillation. The stroke left him with slurred speech and one side of his face slack. There were no other physical symptoms of the stroke. Yesterday, an MRI showed a small bleed on the left side of his brain. The blood thinner was discontinued at that time. Today, he experienced a heart episode with his heart stopping for approximately 6 seconds. Believing the dosage was too high, the heart medication was discontinued until the doctors can re-evaluate the situation. He is able to walk around and talk and is more than ready to get back home. All things considered he is truly blessed. Continued prayers please.
