For Bennie

I asked my Angel
To watch over you today
I told her of your struggle
And I asked her to pray

I asked the Lord Jesus
To hold you in his loving arms
I prayed he’d help you heal
And be with you night and day

I prayed for God to grant us
Strength to help you fight
Hope for each new day
And His LOVE to keep us strong

I asked my Angel
To watch over you today
I told her all about you
When I asked for her to pray

My brother in law (Bennie) suffered a stroke on Monday, Feb. 13. As with most stroke patients, his right side was paralyzed, his speech slurred.

It can be a devastating thing to watch. Bennie was always the quiet one. He never had much to say about anything. Unless my sister or their son was hurt in some way. He rarely got mad about anything. He worked hard .... in an iron foundry. He liked sitting back and watching and listening to others. He also smoked cigarettes for a very long time. A few years ago, he quit. He started having some heart issues, and doctors advised him to. I was proud of him, because I know it's a very difficult thing to do.

[color magenta}Now, a week later, my sister tells me that he is walking. Has regained most of the feeling on his right side, with a little residual numbness in his right arm. His speech has improved too. They discovered that he is a Diabetic, and believe that is what caused the stroke. He has been tested for Diabetes ever few months for a long time. Apparently this just developed. He is now in physical therapy.

I am very thankful that he is recovering. This could have been much worse. I hope he continues getting better.
