two days ago my dad was admitted to the hospital because half of his face got "droopy". scared would be an understatement to describe what i felt. i spent the whole day crying while watching my dad's store, when someone called up looking for him, i can't stop myself from crying. he has mild stroke. and he's only 56. many things were running my head at that time, but most of it was--the tangible reality of life can be taken away with just a snap of a finger. i am scared for my dad. i am scared for my mom. being the eldest i am expected to be strong--but i am not. i just want to pour this out, mylotters, since i can't tell all these to my friends. please pray for my dad--or fast recovery, for my mom--to be strong, and for me as well. thanks and i feel a little better after sharing what im feeling.

My dad had a mild stroke in his 50's also and he is now a very healthy 78. Chances are that your dad will be fine. My thoughts are with you.

I'm also the eldest and I worry about my mom and dad all the time. Even though I don't show it to my family all the time, my thoughts are always at my parents who are half way around the world from where I am. I may just call them after this. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I wish your dad could overcome this and just live a healthy and long life afterwards.
