When I read the news yesterday that Luke Perry had passed away as the result of a massive stroke, it hit home how serious having a stroke can be. My parents both had major strokes. My mother’s primary physician said he was amazed that she survived. Not only did she survive, with therapy she was able to walk again and have limited use of her hand. The human body and spirit is amazing and resilient. Despite the challenges, my brothers and I and the rest of our families are so very grateful that my parents are still with us. Each day is truly a blessing. Tell and show your loved ones that you love and care for them. Don’t put it off. You never know if there will be a tomorrow.
