Default My brother

Need some prayer requests for him.

He woke up the other day feeling fine. All of a sudden he lost feeling in one arm. He went to get checked out. Long story short is he went for some testing where he lives and they sent him here for an mri and other tests. He was just admitted as he had a stroke. He's only 42 and was basically healthy. He's a police officer. I'm waiting for things to calm down then off to see him at the hospital.

Lets hope they find a cause and of course a cure for his stoke.

Certainly nothing to mess with, but recoverable with time.

Prayers sent..

He'll be in our prayers.

With lots of rehab he can make a full recovery.

Went to see him. He's doing alright. They still don't know what caused the stroke. His arm is numb with no strength. He's in till Monday for sure.

He's still in the hospital. They've done a whole slew of tests. This morning they did a scope into his heart and found a hole which allowed blood to clot causing the stroke. So he sees a cardiologist tomorrow to discuss options which might include open heart surgery.

More info. I guess the type of hole he has is very common and 1 in 4 people actually have similar holes. But where his is it allowed a blood clot to travel to his brain causing damage and a stroke. We're awaiting info on surgery to repair it.

Is it going to be an atrial repair from that PFO syndrome?
The youngest Osmond brother Jimmy had that undiscovered until he had a stroke.

Keep us informed on his progress. We'll keep sending the prayers.
