Letter to the Editor - Martin Cockriel

On Thursday, March 25, 2010 Martin Cockriel woke up in the morning with a migraine headache and blurred vision. Barbara Cockriel, his wife, drove him to the emergency room at Parker Adventist Hospital. The doctors thought he had a mini-stroke. They did all the tests for a stroke and the results were negative. However, the doctors could not explain the cause of the blurred vision and headaches. Martin was released out of the hospital on Sunday, March 28, 2010.

On Tuesday, March 30, 2010 the same thing happened when he woke up, and his wife again drove him to the emergency room. The doctors released him to go to a neurovision doctor. Martin has always had great vision. The doctor believes that he has an infection that has settled in the eye socket behind the eye and are hopeful that the blurred vision will go away in time.

Martin wants to thank everyone for their prayers, cards, flowers and phone calls. He has been quoted that his success to staying young is getting up and going to work everyday at 7 a.m., but sometimes the Lord has plan B to slow you down and appreciate life.
