I Am Home
Praise God from whom all my blessings flow,and believe me, they continue to flow. Well, my adventure began on September 5, which was the Saturday before Labor Day. I was feeling really sick, nauseous, throwing up, and had a very bad headache. Lovebug and I were laying down, I needed to go to the bathroom. When I tried to get up out of the bed, I could not walk, Lovebug had to carry me to the bathroom. He called an ambulance, and they took me to the hospital. They ran several tests on me, including a cat scan. The Doctor came into my room, and said that the cat scan showed a possible brain tumor. They transported me by ambulance to another better equipped hospital. They ran another cat scan on me, and a MRI. They then told us that I had been having mini strokes, possibly four. That day, I had a full blown stroke in the back of my brain. It affected my balance, vision, appetite, and was the reason for all of the headaches. I was in surgical intensive care for ten days, then they moved me to a rehab hospital for ten days. I had to have physical, and occupational therapy. I am learning to walk again. My body wants to lean to the left. I got to come home Saturday, I have missed my Lovebug so much. He is so good to me, helps me with everything. God is so awesome, I give Him all the praise. He saved my life. I thank all of you for your precious prayers, and love. Please continue to pray for Lovebug, he is so stressed, as you can imagine. I very much need your continued prayers. I have a blocked artery in the back of my brain, right where I had my stroke. It is 100 blocked, because of where it is located, they cannot operate. The Doctor said all they can do is give me medicine, and pray that I do not have another stroke. God is in total control here, as always. He is carrying me, and giving me His strength. I am safe in His healing hands. I have really missed all of you, pray you are all doing well. Please take care, and be happy. I love you all.
