My Grandfather

This morning my Grandpa had a stroke. He is 89 years old and has always had really good health. I went and saw him today at the Mayo Clinic. He is in ICU right now and is paralyzed on his left side. He is alert and does try to talk to us. It is hard to understand him, but he is doing fairly well for what he has been through. If you could remember him in your prayers, I would greatly appreciate it. He is one of the most sweet and loving men that I know. The nurse was putting a feeding tube down his throat and I was just outside his room waiting. I could hear the nurse telling him I am so sorry, please don't hate me. The nurse came out and told me what a sweet man he was and that he told her that he could never hate her. I love this man!!! He is a strength and light in our life and has always been a great example to me and my family. He truly lives a christ like life.
