Really?

What a week...Mark Hamilton died...an old friend from Powell River...battled brain tumor/cancer for over a decade and he finally gets to rest.
This week my lovely friend Kori had a massive stroke...and is in rough shape, flown here to Victoria...surgery tonight to alleviate the pressure in his brain...this is pretty scary. His wife Mary is staying with me and I cannot imagine how she is coping with today...it was bad enough before but knowing this are getting to the point of no return and surgery is required - that's a whole new shit storm.
I do not even feel like going to see The Vinyl Cafe show tonight...seriously...don't wanna go. Not in the mood.

Good luck to Kori and his wife. I hope everything comes out better than expected. Where was he when he had his stroke?

He felt bad all day at work, terrible headache...after work he ate a bit and went to bed...Mary checked on him after hearing a thud, he fell off the bed and smacked his head on the night table and she called the ambulance...he has a mechanical valve in his heart from a birth defect and the blood thinners he was on didn't quite do the job so the clot went to his brain...they are keeping him in a coma to heal for a while post surgery....

What a horrid week. I wish your friend all the best, and his family strength.
