To All My Poemhunter Friends - Poem by David Harris
As you know, I have not been well of late after being rushed into hospital last Thursday 4 October 2007 as the result of a Transient Ischaemaic Attack (TIA) , which stimulates the symptoms of a stroke. I had five in on Thursday. My left hand side went numb each time. They lasted only five minutes at a time. It was due to lack oxygen to the brain. However, I had to have an x-ray done on my brain. The results came back yesterday and they indicated that during the TIA attacks I actually did suffer a mild stroke. Although I have not suffered any real damage to the brain, I am at times left very tired. This is one reason why I have not been reading much of late. Having said that I am missing all my friends at PH very much.
I want to thank everyone for their marvellous support and prayers. It is only when times like this occur that you find what wonderful friends you have. You may never see their faces, but the thought of them being there for you is very comforting indeed. It is something in the forty odd years of writing I had never experienced before. I am going to come back from today and read maybe one or two poems a day and comment on them. When I get tired, I will obviously come away. I am going to try to get around to everyone I know up here and at least read one of their poems. It is impossible to do that all in one day, so you will have to bear with me.
The good news is that I am on the mend. I am still writing and have several poems to post. I will start to do that tomorrow one or two a day. For now, I just want to thank everyone. Your friendship has touched me so much. I am in debt to you all for your extreme kindness.
