Well I was feeling kinda weird all day, you know I had a bad headache and a bad pain behind my right ear. We left the quilt show and at supper. I noticed that when I tried to drink out of my straw I would suck up some coke and a little coke would like bubble / squirt out from my lips, right side. Well being no true dummy it seemed like stroke symptoms to us. So in the van we go across the street to the emergency room at St. Lukes in The Woodlands. They took my name I told them what I thought and they said “have a seat.” 30 minutes later a triage nurse saw me. We told her what we thought and she said I would have to wait my turn. I said I guess I could go home and call an ambulance she said, “You would still have to wait your turn.”
We left and went to a different hospital. I walked in Conroe Regional handed them my ID & Insurance told them what I thought and they had me come around the corner. Within an hour’s time I was having a CT Scan. I was admitted and an MRI was done on Monday morning the morning we were scheduled to see my Beloved’s oncologist.
I know you are just dying to hear what I got. I do not have any blockages at this time, I have no tumors I do have Bells Palsy and as it turns out I have had a stroke sometime in the past. They can’t tell when, it could have been a couple of weeks old or even a few years. But I have had a stroke. I am fine and on the mend and expect a full recovery from the palsy.
I have been put on meds to help prevent further stokes. And the point of this is to profess and tell you that when adversity comes your way, especially after you laugh in the face of a demon they will do whatever they can to shake your faith. Be courageous, be brave, believe and trust your faith because they know that is the only thing that can defeat them.
All things shall be as they need to be and God will do what is best!
Love you all my bloggy buds. Merry Christmas
