Our journey began on Wednesday, December 23. My dear lovebug was complaining with a headache, and his blood pressure was running high. Then, he said his right leg felt a little numb. I told him we were going to the emergency room just to be safe. As we were sitting in the emergency room, his left leg started going numb. Of course, they started taking blood, and running test on him right away. Eventually, he also lost feeling in his left arm, and from the waist down. They were sure he had a stroke. On Christmas Eve, I almost lost my lovebug. I watched, as he fell back on the bed into my arms, and began to have seizures. The room become filled with nurses, and the trauma unit. They made me leave the room, and sent me into a waiting area. I was crying, praying, and falling apart. Finally, they came and told me they were taking him to ICU. I was totally out of it, they had to take me downstairs to the emergency room, I was almost going into diabetic acidosis. All I wanted was to be with my lovebug, it was a nightmare. Praise God for bringing us through that night. When they let me out of the emergency room, and I was able to go into the ICU to see my lovebug, words cannot express how I felt to see him laying there like that. He is my life, and it hurt so much. Praise God for bringing him out of ICU, and into a regular room on Christmas Day. I was blessed with the greatest Christmas gift ever, my lovebug's life. Of course, our journey did not stop there. It is very much an on going journey. We came home from the hospital on New Year's Eve, quite different from the day we left. Lovebug has no feeling from the waist down, or the left arm. He has to use a walker, and has to have my help getting around. Our life has been changed, but our love has been made only stronger. God is still in charge of everything, and I continue to give Him all the praise. He has carried me, and continues to. I will never be able to thank all of you enough for all the beautiful comments, love, friendship, and precious prayers for me and my lovebug. Please keep praying for lovebug, he starts physical therapy next week. God and lovebug are my two hero's. I love you all so much, sweet blessings to everyone.
