Difficult Times

Hello dear friends,


I'm just stopping in to let you know I may be missing in action for awhile.

My mom had a massive stroke yesterday.  
Thankfully she is still with us and alert.  She knows what is happening but she can no longer speak
though she can  mumble a few words and move her hands a bit.
She is undergoing more tests and observation at the hospital.
Today she received a feeding tube. Today she failed the swallow test to receive a feeding tube but it seems like she may have had a slight improvement by end of day. No more tests will be done until next week as specialists are gone now for the weekend.
 I don't have much more information to share at this time.
Since I'll be busy dealing with her needs and responding to family and friends, I won't be here updating on a regular basis.


If you wish to keep her and the family in prayer that will be much appreciated.



 Thank you.

  9. Hi Penny I sensed before I read your blog something was wrong. I'm sorry for your mum, I hope she will be ok and that she will get back her speech. My brother who I'm caring for had a very bad fall, and went to hospital. The thing with illness and accidents you can never see them coming. I pray you are ok and my thoughts are with you and your mum xxx

I do love to read all your comments and will do my best to return the courtesy. I am no longer on Google + so cannot comment on your blog that way. I tried to open this blog to Anonymous Users but only get Spam so I've eliminated the option. Thank you for stopping by.
