Larry Brazil Had A Stroke Friday Night

tsmith2579(7B)June 9, 2008

Some of you may have met Larry Brazil of Tremont, MS. Larry doesn't post on Gardenweb very often but he lurks and keeps up with what is going on, especially with the Louisiana/Mississippi forum and the Alabama forum. Last September I went to Larry's and brought back a number of plants to distribute at the Fall swap. He is a very giving person, a gracious host and the epitome of a Southern gentleman. I received an email today notifying me Larry had a stroke last Friday night. He is in North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, MS. I hope all of you will say a prayer for Larry's swift recovery. I'll keep you posted as I receive more information.

Thanks

Terry Smith

It will be a priviledge to send warm thoughts and wishes to your friend Larry. He sounds like a gem of a man.

I met Larry at Ida Flynns dl garden in Sulligent, AL last year. He's a very nice man...we have kept in touch via email. Thank you for letting me know about this, and I will certainly keep him in my thoughts and prayers.
Have you heard anything more about his condition?

I talked to Robbie, who had surgery last week so he has been out of pocket. Larry's condition is much the same. He is paralyzed on one side but can speak pretty well. He was given a swallow test so they hope to remove the feeding tube soon so he can eat by mouth. He will probably go to rehab for about 3 months and then they will decide what to do next. Larry still needs your prayers. Sylvia's father was much the same about 20 years ago. He couldn't talk and was totally paralyzed on one side but he finally recovered to the point he could walk, talk and drive. So prayer does help.

Rehab is all of the difference. He can certainly recover a lot of his losses, but it will not be easy. I will add him to my prayer list as well.

I tried to call thehospital room the other nite. Wasn't sure if a family member would be there, or how well Larry could talk. No one answered. I live nearby and would love to visit esp if he'll be in rehab a while. If anyone knows, please post if Larry would be up to visitors. He invited me for a tour of his place in early spring, and it was a treat! What a nice man with diverse interests and I left with several plants!
