The last few of my posts haven’t been typical. I’ve been going through a lot mentally. I’ve been thinking too much about life-been questioning the usual themes. Even with strong will and convictions embraced, and all that we hold firm to, people can still get caught up in life. Wondering too much is distracting. Distraction makes way for better chances of getting off track, I suppose.
We are all where we are supposed to be right now in this very moment. That was incredibly difficult for me to grasp all my life up until now. Even now, I am still “grasping,” with slippery fingers. Second, I believe it to be true that we were all born fully equipped with everything we would ever need to carry out our life’s mission. I wish I had heard that ten years ago, but everything happens for a reason. The ups and downs of life actually shape who we become. One life event is prepping us for the next one and so on.The hard work is prepping us to enjoy the victory and how marvelous it really is.
My mother is such an amazing woman, the sweetest soul with the biggest heart. She’s as delicate as a flower.
She loves her family and everyone with all she has.
Things had finally begun to settle down in my life after losing dad in early June. Last night around 9 p.m. I got a phone call from my mom telling me that she was on her way to the ER with her sister who insisted she go because my mother all of a sudden had this strange pain in her left eye. Mom was home alone and I guess her sister called and then they went from there. So after waiting around for a couple hours, my mother called me back. She said that the doctor there had labs drawn which turned out okay, but nothing seemed to really be serious, yet ordered mom to go see an actual optometrist this morning at 8 a.m.
This afternoon mom phoned to tell me that at her eye appointment she found out that she had had a light stroke in her left eye. More labs were drawn, and an ultrasound was scheduled to check for blockages in her neck. All of this just blew me away. How did we get from an annoying eye pain while watching TV to this???
Anyway…this evening I found out from my sister that my mother can’t really see out of her left eye right now, which she did not tell me earlier. Mom shelters me from it all because I am her baby, and she knows how very sensitive I am and just how emotional I get whenever we discussed her sickness or any kind in the past. She is my everything in the human form. My mom is my best friend. Yes, I cried a few tears, but for the most part I’m just numb.
My sister and I are headed 3 hours south east to snatch mom up with her things, and my old dog Little, and head back up here to central KY. We are going to have her PCP in my old hometown refer her to a very nice facility here in the city where she will be very well taken care of. My aunt is with her tonight.
This brings me to my prayer request.
Please, people of faith, I ask you to pray for my momma as she is dealing with all of this stuff out of the blue. My prayer is that her vision be restored and fixed, the right and the best medications will be prescribed if needed, God will protect the rest of her body from anything else, and that the entire medical team simply be instruments of God-Let Him work through their hands and eyes.
Finally, My Praise report!
I Praise God Almighty that when my mother was home alone and this stroke happened that He was there and it did not spread to any other area of her body. God has blessed her health many times, and mine as well. Blessed be His Holy Name!
Thank you for reading and for all prayers. God bless everyone tonight. Remember that things can change in the blink of an eye on this earth, so be sure and end each day on a great note, never let the sun go down on your wrath, and always part ways in peace. We never know when ours or anyone’s days are up.
