Meghan Markle's father, Thomas, is going to need a year of therapy to recover from his stroke. Meghan's half sister, Samantha, tells GB News, “I don’t think he saw it coming but he’s doing better – he’s in good spirits. It’s going to take several… maybe six months, maybe a year, to get his speech back. He can work with a speech therapist and it’s good, the attack he had in the speech producing part of the brain wasn’t so big that he can’t recover. But you know when you’re almost 80 years old, there’s less plasticity and things are more difficult. So he has the memory of the words and the associations, the stroke was on the right side of the brain, so the damage was on the left and he’s left handed. But it also impaired his speech and his ability to swallow.”
A source tells the Daily Mail that Meghan wants to reconcile with her father. ''Despite their estrangement, Meghan is concerned. She wants to know if there is any way to contact her father privately, without other family knowing about it or having to get involved.

It won’t involve Netflix, it won’t involve any photographs and it must not involve any tip-offs to the paparazzi.''

I was recently doing my husband's laundry when I found a receipt for Viagra in his pocket. I was shocked because I don't believe he is using the drug with me. My mind started to race and wander. Was he cheating and using it with someone else? Did he buy it as a joke for a friend? I calmed down and am now contemplating what to do. If I question him about the Viagra, and he is using it for us, I may embarrass him and make him angry. What do you think he is doing? How do I approach the situation? Is he cheating? Tell me what to do! I need help!
