Just got off the phone...

...with Farmer Frank.

He had a no kiddin' serious stroke, but he's fighting back like... well, like the kind of dude who doesn't call in sick when he leaves a chunk of finger in some farm machinery. Most of the tubes are out and he's fixing to start the serious work of rehabbing.

Between his wife realizing what was up and calling the ambo, the ambo crew getting him to the hospital quick, and the docs at the hospital being on the ball, the prognosis is good for what would otherwise have been The Big One not all that many years ago.

If you're the prayin' type, keep praying as he goes through the grind of recovering from this mess. If you're not the praying type, then think positive thoughts or stick voodoo dolls or whatever is your equivalent.

Thank you.

Thanks for the update. Good to hear, and glad he's the tough type. Look forward to seeing him at another blogmeet.

Done!
Prayer and/or voodoo.

If one is good, more must be better, eh?

Thoughts and prayers will continue...

Yeah, a stroke was partial or complete death, 20 years ago. With education and ER docs with initiative, we're seeing people pull through to complete recovery, in some cases, and very slight impairment in others.

Hope the rehab goes well and there aren't any severe deficits.
