This guy at work who could pass for my twin – he’s slightly stockier and six years younger but looks my age (I don’t know if that’s good or bad) – had a mild stroke yesterday.  I don’t know the details, but it seems to have been caused by high blood pressure.  I spoke with him earlier today and he seemed fine on the phone.  Said he’d be taking off the rest of the month, returning next Friday.
So, thankfully, it must have been real mild.
Still, a wake-up call.  Certainly for him, but also for me.  I will pray for the guy; he’s one of the assets at the place where I work, and a genuinely nice man. 
Twenty-four hours ago I was toying with the idea of giving up soda ... consider it done, with more overhauls to come!
