Vanity--PackerBoy has had a stroke, is recovering
myself ^ | 1/11/2011 | me

Posted on 01/11/2011 3:30:23 PM PST by Packer Pete

Some of you may know him as Packerboy. He is my brother Jack. He had a major stroke on the morning of Christmas Eve. He was unconscious for several days, but he has since reawakened, and is able to talk, but is very slow and sleepy. The stroke affected his thalamus, so he is having trouble with wakefulness. But he can move all his extremities, can answer questions (subtle ones even), still has his sense of humor, and is starting to speak as I write this.

I am updating this group on Facebook with his status regularly: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/home.php?sk=group_179708002048803&ap=1

Dear God,
I hold Jack up to Thee and humbly ask that You will lay Your hands upon him
and restore him even as You did to those about whom we read in the Bible.
In Jesus' Name
Amen
