To make a long story short, my sister and I have not been on congenial terms with my father for about 6 years, mostly due to his wife. She is manipulative and it is better to just stay away from her.
My friend sees her occasionally as they both belong to the same organization, and knows her enough to speak to. The wife knows that my friend is married to my ex-DH (THAT's a whole 'nother thread), and that we are friends.
The wife tells my friend that my dad has been off work for 3 weeks, as he had a stroke.
She said that she had been to take him for an MRA that day and it showed 98% blockage in one artery and over 90% in the other. She said he was at home with her and not in a hospital.
My question is this, since I am skeptical of anything this woman says, and dont' want to get myself in a big mess with getting caught up in her schemes,
IF a person had carotid arteries that were that blocked, and had a stroke, would they be well enough to be at home? AND why would they wait 3 weeks to do an MRA??? We live in a one horse town but are only an hour from Louisville, and it wouldn't be a problem to send someone for tests.
He is 62, going to be 63 next month, smokes like a freight train for close to 50 years, Type II diabetic for 10 yrs or more, and most likely doesn't eat well, since he is a truck driver.
IF my dad is really ill, I would go to see him, but I am paranoid for good reason that she wants me out there just to raise hell and cause trouble. :uhoh21:
