Prayer request...

My buddy texted me that his father had a mini-stroke.

His father, JVP, served two tours in Vietnam, volunteered for both. Most of it in the jungle, until he got popped. He spent the rest of this second tour behind a desk.

Apparently, Lipitor and blood thinners are working. He has some diet adjustments to be made in his near future.

I talked to JVP this afternoon. He had been out walking it off!!!

He is the closest thing I have to a second father.

See, he's already on the road to recovery. And no pussy ass stroke is going to make him go down. I bet he will make it.
I know how you feel, I'll pray for you and him.

Update: Apparently, the stroke was an indication of a greater heart problem. He had a cardiac catheter today. He is supposed to get about a week or so of rest before bypass surgery.
