Prayers for my BIL

I just got word that my brother in law had a stroke yesterday and that the brain scan showed a blood clot. After a 4 hour surgery they were able to remove the clot. Improvement began after surgery and he regained felling in his left arm and leg and he was able to swollow. Please pray for a full speedy recovery for him and for his wife. She was just here visiting and had only been home for a few days when it occured......thank God she was back home in Montana though.

Thanks everyone! Doesn't appear to be as bad as my father had....thank God! Whenever I hear stroke or cancer it throws me back in time when I was having to live through the horrors of my parents illnesses and their ultimate deaths. Prayers are very appreciated!
