What curls do on a bad hair day!


« on: October 10, 2013, 11:31:39 PM »

My uncle (not Orthodox), who has already been ravaged by Alzheimer's, had a bleed in his brain, which paralyzed him completely on one side.
They did brain surgery to relieve the pressure and it all went well, but we won't know for a while if any of the paralysis was just from the pressure and might be reversed somewhat, or if it is all permanent.

He was talking a bit and complaining that he didn't want the nurses to touch him, but we still have no clue how severe the long term results of this all will be.

He is only 72, so prayers for healing so that he doesn't spend a long time -both- not in his right mind and trapped in a non-working body, would be very much appreciated.

He is stable enough that they are transferring him to the Kaiser hospital (ahh insurance fun) within the next day or so.

He has been very ornery, and telling all the visitors to 'get the  H&$^ out', which is both frustrating for them but also good in the sense that he is trying to cover up some of his confusion with the anger.  This is the same thing he did at the start of his Alzheimer's, so I look at it as -normality- in his brain.

Thank you all for continuing to think of and pray for him.
