Hello Logan County! I am still here by the mercy of a greater power. When I wrote my last article I was in the newspaper office. I was in the advertising department using one of their computers. I could not get up the steps to the news department. When I completed my article O.J.Stapleton, our top man at the paper had to help me get up from the desk. I went to the Russellville Rotary Club meeting and barely made it.
I then went to the North Crest Hospital where it was discovered that I had suffered a serious stroke. My speech had become very slurred, my walking staggered and all strength depleted. Thank goodness I was taking an aspirin daily. (I suffered the stroke on my birthday, July 19 but it was a couple of days before I was hospitalized when others insisted I go to the hospital.
I am doing much better. Everything is improving. I am responding to the good care. Hopefully I will return to this column in the near future. Thank you for your many kindnesses.
