Just a Quick Update

Hi everyone, first let me thank each and everyone who has sent up a prayer for my mom. We so appreciate it. God has been good to us and has answered so many prayers since moms stroke. She is much better and everyday there is improvement. The stroke specialist said the type of stroke she had is not fatal and that she will totally recover. Praise God for that! He is so faithful! Her Dr. said that a small blood clot left her heart and caused the stroke which affected her left side. They have placed her on blood thinners and are hopeful that she will not have anymore. When she had her heart surgeries 2yrs. ago they did not feel she needed to be on any blood thinners. But, since this bloodclot left her heart they have decided it is time to put her on them. It has taken a while to regulate her meds and may take a little longer. Her blood check today said it was too thin, so we are still in the adjustment stage. She will have to have her blood checked on a weekly basis but this is a small thing considering what it could have been. She is feeling much stronger each and every day. She has seen a physical and occupational therapist and they have given her the green light. And we are so blessed to have her with us. She has had heart problems since she was 14 and she is now 75yrs. young! And has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure 2yrs. ago. So for us each day with her is more precious than the previous day. We just trust God to take care of her through the good and the bad. She has all the use of her left leg again and is gaining strength daily. Still a little wobbly but doing good considering she couldn't move it at all last week! She told me today she was ready to start quilting again as she has a quilt in frames she was working on when this happened. She has pieced 7 quilts over the summer and is quilting them for Christmas gifts for each of her grandchildren. I have volunteered to help her bind them as she wants to do all the quilting and she is determined to get them all done. Please continue to pray for her that her strength will return full force. As for me........I am tired but ok. I have had to rearrange a few things but other than that all is well on my end. Again thank you for praying for my mom.
