Where is Grasshopper??

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Dave and I have been absent from the forum for a while.  Dave has had several health issues over the last year. Just when one thing seems to be getting under control - something else crops up. 

 

At this time we are asking for your prayers.  Last Thursday, Dave had a stroke that affected his entire left side.  Already his leg, face and speech are back to nearly 100%.  His left arm is like "Jello" as he puts, but getting better every day.  He's a fighter and will overcome this as well!! 

 

He will be coming home in the next few days and will start rehap - Send all  your good thoughts!!

Prayers for both of you.

I wondered how you two have been. I emailed for your anniversary, and didn't hear back.

I certainly miss you both!

Jane,

 

I had been wondering about you and Grasshopper.  Thank you so much for the updates. I'm delighted to hear that Dave has made so much progress in his recovery and pray that the progress continues.  It would seem that practicing moving the machine, stitching or not, would be good therapy if Dave feels strong enough.  May you both be blessed with strength to see each other through these challenges.

I'm glad to hear Dave is improving, but it sounds like he has quite a way to go. I'll say some prayers for his continued gain of movement and health, and for you, Jane, as this is very difficult for you as we'll.

Positive thoughts for a great recovery.  Up your intake of Magnesium, this was recommended by a neuro surgeon after my Mothers second round of brain surgeries(16 years after her first stroke).
