This happened last sunday night.
Tonight I was in the right place at the right time. I was passing through the local casino when I saw a friend I had not seen in months. As I greeted her I noticed something strange happening. She was having a stroke. I had a friend get security and they called the paramedics. Lucky for her it was not major but for a moment she could not talk and her face clearly had paralysis on one side. I stayed with her and she slowly was able to speak. I had someone summon her husband and brother who were there for her. She was examined by the paramedics and was back to normal as far as they could tell. The recommended transport but she chose to go with her husband. Afterwards she told me that she was seeing a pulmonary specialist tomorrow as in a cat scan the found spots on her lungs. I'm hoping she is going to be okay, she had been a dear friend for years.
I was once told that my mission in life was not complete and my life was restored. I guess part of that mission is to be there to aid and comfort others. I did that tonight. I'm always there for any friend. That's just the way I live.
This friend will be in my thoughts and prayers for a while. I dearly hope all goes well.
