On Thursday, April 27, 2017, John suffered a stroke. He has been in the hospital and going through extensive scans, tests, and therapies to determine the extent of the damage caused by the stroke. On May 1, 2017, John was up and walking around and doing great with the physical therapist! He does have deficits, however, and his recovery will likely be long and involves a lot of outpatient therapy. Raymond and John's kids have been taking shifts staying at the hospital and making sure we all know what John needs during his recovery process.
This stroke came out of nowhere and a tragedy like this is impossible to predict or plan for. This recovery process will keep John out of work for an unknown period of time. We all know and love John and he has done so much to help so many people! Right now, he needs our help. We ask that you consider donating to the costs of his recovery therapies and treatments. If you cannot donate, please send a prayer. It is our hope that, with time, John will make a full recovery but there is no way to tell.
At this time, John is not taking any visitors or company, texts, or calls. If you would like to reach out to John or send a message, please contact one of his children via Facebook and we will be sure to relay the message to him.
On behalf of Ray and all of the Shull children, we appreciate any prayers and well wishes during this time. We all remain hopeful that the John we know and love will come back to us!
