Sending Much Love to Bruce!

I heard from Bryn on January 15 and he sent me a note that Bruce had a stroke on the morning of January 14 (I believe I have the date correct).  Bryn responded quickly after seeing some signs and they ran tests.  On January 15, they performed two procedures to dissolve the clot and then suction the clot out of the vein.  The procedures went well and Bruce's vitals are good.

Bruce will be in the hospital for a couple of days of observation and then possibly to rehab to strengthen his left side.  Bryn has been with him throughout the ordeal. 

I didn't want to pass this along until I specifically heard from Bryn that it was OK to do so.  So glad to hear that Bruce is doing well.  As I mentioned to Bryn, I know that Bruce not only has a great doctor but also a great nurse in Nurse Bryn.  (And Bryn, if you read this and see that I have any of the information incorrect, please let me know and I will update it.)

Sending much love and prayers to both Bruce and Bryn.  I will post any updates as they become available.  While they will be away for a while, they will be back and interacting with us all here on the blog.   Bruce and Bryn, your blog family cannot wait until you are back with us on a nightly basis again!  We miss you and love you!
