I recently found out that one of my good friends suffered a stroke on December 22nd. His right side is paralyzed, he can't swallow or breathe on his own and he's also suffering from a secondary infection. He's being kept sedated to try and stabilize his condition. I wanted to go to the hospital to see him, but because he's in ICU, he's not allowed any visitors right now. The saddest thing is that two years ago, his older brother suffered a stroke as well and has been in a nursing home for the past year.
I feel so terrible for his family right now - I could only imagine how they must feel. DH and I have been praying for him, but if anyone has any good thoughts they can spare for him, I'd appreciate it.
