  • our son had a stroke

    Our son Brian had a stroke on Friday June 19.He is in Cox South in Springfield, MO He is progressing, but it is very slow. We thought we were going to loose him. He is 37 years old, too young for this to happen. His left leg is a little "slow" but he can walk, his left arm "tingles". He said it feels like when your hand goes to sleep and you can't control it. On Saturday his arm was hurting really bad, the nurse called the doctor he said it was good news, that the blood was starting to flow. It will be a very long process, lots of therapy and rehabilitation. He has a wife, family, and a 10 year old daughter that has always said she loves her Daddy more than anyone else in the world. Please keep Brian in your thoughts and prayers. He needs your prayers. Wanda and Dusty Taylor

    Dusty,

    Your son is in our prayers for sure. This seems to be happening all to frequently to young people. The wife of a good friend and a co-worker were both stricken within the last two years, both were under 55. The good news is they are both recovering very well. After about 2 years my friends wife is almost completely recovered, the fellow from work has been out for a little over a month and is making fast progress. There are some tough times for them as they relearn some things, both had trouble speaking for a while. Let's pray that Brian does just as well and is back to some semblence of normal quickly.

      Hello Wanda and Dusty,

      Please read the book, My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey by Jill Bolte Taylor. Your son and daughter in-law should read it, too. The author, a doctor, had a massive stroke. With the suppoort of her mother, who often let her just sleep instead of [u]strictly following</u> the medical professionals' therapy regimen, this remarkable woman has made a complete recovery. You, your son, and his wife might decide to do everything his doctors and rehab therapists want him to do, but Ms. Taylor's book will, at the very least, help you to better understand what your son is going through.

      Kindest regards,

                So sorry to hear about your son. Its fantastic that his is recovering its a slow process but you guys get to recover together. Strokes are happening to alot of younger people its scary. I lost my younger brother to one a tear and a half ago. But you guys get a chance. We are all pulling for you.

                        Brian will be in my prayers, Wanda & Dusty
                        You both have been so good to me over the years.
                        I appreciate you both.

                        I really believe Brian is in a good place.
                        Ralph Emory interviewed Mickey Gilley recently
                        and Mickey told about some surgery he'd had done
                        right there in Springfield. Must be the same
                        hospital, unless you have more than one.
                        From what Mickey Gilley had to say, I'm sure
                        Brian is in good hands. May God give you peace
                        and may He give the doctors great wisdom.

                            Geez, I'm sorry to hear that. Maybe this will make you feel better, I know someone who had a similar incident over a year ago and today you can't tell... you can come back from something like that.
