Update on Mike Creasy
Posted by Larry Jordan on July 28, 2014, 11:06 pm
The news today regarding Mike Creasy is not good. Apparently he suffered a massive stroke and is paralyzed on the right side, unable to speak. But his wife, June, reports that he responds by shaking his head yes or no when asked questions. This is a terrible tragedy as Mike is a devoted Jim Reeves fan who has spent many hours assembling a very nice photo site in tribute to Jim. |
Years ago I had a friend who suffered a paralytic stroke and later told me that as she lay in bed she could hear her doctors telling her husband there was no hope for her recovery and they may as well disconnect her life support. Fortunately, her spouse never gave up on her. Indeed, she began to show signs of improvement and eventually made a sufficient recovery to be able to return home and function fairly normally the rest of her life. She lived years longer. So I hope this will be of some comfort to Mike's family.
Those of you who already have his wife, June's email, should be sure to contact her with words of support and encouragement. I hesitate to post her private email online without her permission.
