50+50 Thinking of my dad and hoping he is ok

This morning I talked to my dad on the phone from Florida and he mentioned he felt funny the night before, like he was drunk and his right hand felt strange., but then he felt better and thought he would visit the Doctor on Monday just to get checked out.

But that plan changed around 1pm today when he was having trouble with his speech and swallowing so he went to the Hospital this afternoon, as of this writing I am still waiting on word on his condition.

Nothing confirmed as of yet but it is sounding more and more like a possible stroke.

My dad has always been very healthy and he is very active at 79 years of age, Never had to spend a day in hospital and checkups always great, so this is a shocker to me.

Right now all I can do is wait to hear news, Anyone reading please take a moment to think of good thoughts for my father.

Update….

As of 9pm, Dad is back home still not feeling good but Hospital did not think stroke, gave him phone # for a specialist to see in the morning.

so it will be a wait and see what Monday brings.
