I was going to continue my rant about the slobs this morning but three little sentences sent to my Blackberry at 11:00 p.m. last night changed everything.

“On the way home from the Rockettes concert, Kim suffered a major stroke with debillitating consequences.  She’s in critical condition.  Please pray for her.”

My brother sent the message and Kim is his girlfriend.  They’ve been together for four or five years.  She’s quite a bit younger than he is.  She’s 45 and he’s 60.  They’re both health nuts.  Work out every day, eat healthy nutritious meals, neither smoke or drink.  Living the clean life. 

Kim wanted to see the Rockettes in Nashville last weekend.  I was waiting for them to get home so I could call and invite them to Christmas dinner.

How on earth could Kim have had a major stroke?  She’s a tiny little thing who could run circles around me.  She and Mike travel a lot and they just got back from the Virgin Islands last month.  Kim was showing me pictures and I was so jealous of the pictures of her in her little bikini.  Looking all healthy and tanned.

I can’t wrap my mind around this.  It’s too early to call anyone.

How could this have happened? 

Pray for them.

I’m very, very sorry. High blood pressure is sometimes silent. :(

I am sorry that your brothers girlfriend has to go through this. I she gets better soon, and that perhaps it is too early to determine just how bad the consequences of the stroke are. Hopefully she will recover soon. My prayers are with you and your family.
