I just found out that Kathy Morgan (Rick's wife) appears to have suffered a mini-stroke, or as they also call it a TIA (transient ischemic attack: brief episode in which the brain gets insufficient blood supply). Those that have interacted with Kathy at recent club events may have noticed symptoms.

Rick and Kathy spent all day Tuesday at the hospital. Eventually she was admitted for a bunch of tests and observations, kept overnight and is still there today.

Please reach out to Rick and hold them both in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks

Kathy and Rick , i am so very sorry to hear that Kathy is back in the hospital. Both of you have dedicated time to Shelly's me and my kids well being and you are both wonderful pillars of strength. You are in our prayers and if I could be there I would. If you need anything that I can provide you have only to ask. May God be with you.

A quick update-- I have a minute while Kathy is sleeping.

Kathy was admitted to Yale New Haven via the ER on Tue AM. She was
discharged from the hospital Fri nite and I brought her home and put
her to bed. Sat AM she was having relapses of all the same symptoms,
which led me to believe she had been discharged prematurely. So after
a lot of phone calls and authorizations and stuff, back we went.

We were there all day Sat, and by Sat nite some medication they had
administered seemed to be working, so she was discharged again. So
far so good. She has been resting a lot. A good sign is that she is
agitating to go to the North Haven Car Cruise tomorrow nite, and is
asking when Lime Rock, the next Club meeting, and the NJ Show are.

But a bad sign is that I can't tell you what the medication name was.
Those medicines all sound like Polish surnames to me!

We appreciate all the prayers and good wishes. Keep them coming; so
far they are working! What a great family. We love you guys!

All Z Best,................................Kathy & Rick

That's very good news! Thanks for the update. We will continue to pray for the both of you.
I won't have any more news on my wife until the end of this week.

My prayers go out to both Bill and his wife, and for Rick's wife Kathy. I hope all is well, and may God be with you.

It's over a year since the last post, so I thought it time to update.
Even though most of you have seen Kathy at least once since then.

The first stroke (Aug 22 2006) affected her mainly physically, in
particular visual and equilibrium challenges. But being the tough
little Irishman and having a good God in her life, she made what
everyone considers a pretty miraculous comeback. But the second
stroke (now confirmed) has affected her in psychological ways.
The doctors have found that there is damage to the portion of the
brain that deals with what they are calling cognitive skills.

So I hope you all will cut her a little slack if from time to time she
may either act or speak in what could be considered an inappro-
priate manner. At least we now know the reason for it. And we
also know she means no harm.

Thanking you for me, but mostly for her.
~Rick~
