I'm sorry to hear this about Tony, Chris.
I hope he's okay now!
And of course this beautiful vessel was named after you :) #10941805

Glad to see you didn't lose your sense of humor in the midst of more health issues with Tony, Chris. Hope he's well on the way back to a full recovery. #10942520

Thank you all, he seems OK & has no outwards signs after the incident. Today is the 6th anniversary of his fall & brain injury, our girls Kerry & Stacey sent him a Happy Anniversary message. He replied, Thanks & he thinks it was a "STROKE" of luck he is still here to celebrate!!! #10944452

OM GOSH! I am so sorry to read this news. Please, you two, take good care of each other.

What causes mini strokes? Maybe his prior injuries sure could have brought this on.

I hope you don't mind me sending up some prayers for Tony and you both.

What a pretty picture of part of the waiting room. :) How neat that it brought back sweet memories for you of your Childhood, Chris! :)

I HOPE 2014 just gets BETTER from here for you both!

-Laura :)

P.S. We are trying to stay warm here. A blizzard ripped through last night and was gone that same house. I thought the forest was going to flatten in the straight winds. #10944508

Chris Ebben January 13, 2014

Thanks a lot Laura. He has not been the same since his accident, 6 years today, luckily he has only had mini strokes. We are having very hot days that are very tiring, supposedly getting worse over the next few days. #10944964
