Dad had a stroke before he came to stay with us that took his ability to speak. He had to go through speech therapy & learn to talk again. His therapist was working with him one day; she'd hold flash cards up & he was to tell her what picture was on the card. She held up a picture of a car, & he said "57". She says "No, Mr. Whiteside, try again". He says "57". She says "No, it's a car". He says "It's a '57 Chevrolet, da...it". He was right!
I care for my grandma who had a debilitating stroke like that. They amazed you sometimes didnt they?
Us too!! Absolutely loved it!! We did 90% of school outside today with chickens running all around. It was great!
Yes! I am so looking foreward to it and hoping for once they are right! Warmer and drier!!
Ok, so, anecdote:
Most of you know that I take care of my elderly father (he's 84). I was standing in his room today talking to him and he happened to turn his head so his bedside table light illuminated the side of his face/head. I notice that his ear looked purple (the whole ear), like it wasn't getting circulation. He's been having problems with that ear. Around the inside rim amd behind it it's been sore and scabby- almost looks like psoriosis. So I step closer and make him turn his head- it's purple all right. I said "Dad, what did you put on your ear?" He says, "That stuff you have out there...." That stuff I have out there is the Blue Kote I bought for the chickens! God love him. Dang southerner.
My grandpa used to use it while hunting, although he Claimed he carried it for the dogs!
