Prayers Needed For old dad UPDATE

Just been contacted by Mark, he is currently in the hospital due to having a stroke. Our text conversation was short as he indicated that texting is difficult and his speech is slow. Mark is a man of integrity and has done so much for the forum and its members over the years. Please reciprocate all he has given us by saying a prayer, sending healing thoughts, or just wishing him well.

sorry to hear. Hang in there OldDad

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

Thinking and praying for you Mark.

Stroke's are hitting a lot of folks for some reason right now...
one of my customer's stepdad had a clogged artery in his neck...
he was supposed to be taking High Blood Pressure Meds,
and Cholesterol Meds...but wasn't because they upset his stomach.
So he had a stroke last week also. Neck vein was heavily clogged.
He can barely talk and is paralyzed on his right side...only 49 years old.

Once you get a HBP diagnosis, it's really important to take the meds,
and have all your arteries checked...and yeah, that part hurts.
Catheter inspection is a royal pain...but it can save your life!
The bruises only last for a few days

Also very important is a serious change of diet. Backing off all the
bad stuff...which tastes so good! Cheese & fatty foods have to be reduced.
Sucks, but you either wanna live longer, or ya don't!

Prayers sent, Stroke's are a tough recovery road!

Ride paranoid. Don't let anything distract you.
Keep the paint side up, wear the lid & leathers.
