Life changes in a stroke

How does one deal with sudden illness or misfortune? I hope I will face them with equanimity

It's been a trying week for my family.

Last Saturday, I woke up to an e-mail from my sister informing us that Phill, her 56-year-old husband, had suffered a stroke.

He had gone to work as usual on Friday. At about 8am, he felt weird and also couldn't raise his left arm. He told his colleagues he could be having a stroke.

They called an ambulance and phoned my sister with the bad news. She rushed to the hospital with the kids.
