  1. I’m sorry to hear about about his stroke. My pops had a stroke a couple of years back. Though he still suffers from the effects of it,he’s doing a lot better and is just regaining some feeling in both legs. His memory is good for a man of his early 70’s.
    When it comes to HBP, you cannot afford to go without your meds or / and not take care of yourself. My pops had a stroke for similar reasons that Kenny did.
    I hope that he get better…and to take his meds as prescribed and to take care of himself. Strokes aren’t jokes.
