RE: Out of the frige soup
Paul, you are a good boy. Sounds like you are taking excellent care of Mawmaw Smith - I'm sure she greatly appreciates all you do.
Having had strokes myself, I know a little about them. Most of the time, the effects from a TIA are temporary. If the problems she is having don't resolve shortly, maybe you should ask her Doc about her having an MRI. I've had 3 strokes in the thalmus area, which didn't show up on the CAT scan, but showed up on the MRI. In any case, I know you will look after her. Tell her that Skylar on the roadfood board wishes her the best, and will be praying for her.
