um, this is not ok


Last week my dad told my sisters and I that he had been talking to some friends and suddenly felt "thick-tongued". He was having trouble saying words and putting his thoughts into sentences. Other times he said he was slurring his words and sounded drunk. My mom took him to the emergency room where they took a bunch of tests. They made an appointment for an MRI to see what was going on in his brain. He got the results late last week and called and told us.

My dad had a mild stroke.

Needless to say, I am a bit of a wreck.
