Subject: [NFBAffiliatePresidents] Update on Ray McGeorge
Since I last wrote, we had been blessed with a few days of relatively little
change and signs of improvement. Today, however, is another one of those
days with a bump in the road. Unfortunately, Ray suffered a stroke today.
The doctors cannot predict ultimately how this will affect Ray. It is
simply too early to tell. The good sign is that he has been stable since
and he is moving all of his limbs around and has been over-breathing the
respirator often. He also has a blood clot in his lung that they are
discussing how to treat. One method is to insert through a catheter a
filter in his artery would prevent that clot from either lodging in his
heart or his brain.
This afternoon I went down to the hospital and spent well over a half an
hour in Ray's room, holding his hand and talking to him. My sense is that
he is fighting this hard and that he has definitely not given up despite
these bumps in the road. The strength emanating from Ray is palpable. We
need to keep our prayers and thoughts focused on him. Diane told me again
how very much she appreciates everyone's messages, prayers, thoughts, and
love. Keep them coming!
