Mindy and the kids are still healthy but something no one could have imagined, especially Bill, happed one day and changed everything.
The family returned from a vacation cruise on a Sunday. Bill left for work the next day as usual. The next morning, while Bill was talking about the cruise with his friend at work, he suddenly stopped talking and fell to the floor.
Bill had a massive stroke. To make things worse, he struck his head so badly, that doctors would not be able to give him vital stroke treatment medication once he reached the hospital.
