|Happy to be Alive|
My landlord has been home from the hospital for a few days now. He had a stroke and is paralyzed on one side. But his state of mind is upbeat and already he is standing and walking with a walker. It has been like one big party here every since he returned. He is a popular man in the community and people are coming all day long. Children play in the yard. Lots of food is being brought in. The first day that he was back, fifteen people came to visit him.
His son wanted him to return to Canada and check into the hospital there. My landlord refused. He said he would probably die if he did that. He wants to stay here and I think that is the best decision he could have made. He has two physical therapists coming in to help him. He has lots of help and friends surrounding him. This is the best place for him to heal. I am happy to see that he is progressing so quickly. Also happy that I am still alive to witness it and to enjoy the holiday season here. I hope everyone reading this has a wonderful holiday season too.
