A heartfelt request

I'm a very private person and when I started FKD I made the decision to keep my posts mainly on the knitting track. That being said I do believe in the power of collective prayer and positive thought.

My Dad had a stroke this morning so could you please keep him in your thoughts and prayers?

Thanks everyone.

Just by the sound of your voice when I first answered the phone, I KNEW something was wrong. Many many virtual hugs going out to you.

I've lit a candle for Daddy FKD, and placed it in the Western-most part of the house, and have asked my entire family to include him in their prayers. My favorite uncle suffered a massive stroke a few months ago, so I'm right there with you.

Know you are loved, and you and your family are in my thoughts.

Blessings to you and your family. I will keep you all in my prayers. I've been where you are and know how hard it is when everything changes in a second. Keep a stiff upper lip. Medicine can do wonders today.
Hugs, kisses, and purrs from

Deb, I do hope your father recovers soon and well. My brother, who had a stroke in September, is doing better, but still has great difficult walking and getting rid of his double vision.
