    Dad's in Hospital

    Well it had to happen sooner or later... it appears that dad had a TIA Wednesday night and took a fall, Mom got him to the hospital early Thursday AM - they worked him up and sent him home with a follow up apt for Monday.

    Last night he had another incident and mom took him in again - this time they figure he had another TIA and has internal bleeding, possibly from the fall on Wednesday.

    He is retired LEO/CO (retired again in December) and is in Colorado... I am having a hard time with this - been unemployed since March of last year and do not have the funds to make a trip...

    Could use some prayer

    Mr. D, I said a prayer for you and your family. I can sympathize with you, my mother has TIA's too.

    Prayer going out for you, your Dad and your family.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
