I went to the ER Tuesday night. :( I woke up at 2am with a TERRIBLE headache. I felt obviously very uncomfortable but I had SUCH a feeling of peace. I had gotten out of bed but didn't want to leave the room in case I needed to get Barry. I just sat in my wheelchair and prayed over Barry and Elijah, who happened to be in our bed that night.
Barry woke up about an hour later and we evidentially decided to go to the ER, in case I was having another stroke. At the hospital, they took me right back and, because of my stroke history, immediately did a scan. While we waited for the results, I again felt peace. Sure, I had cried, but I still felt at peace. The results came back clear - NO NEW BLEED!!! Praise God!!
People say I'm strong, but I can't stress enough that it's not me that is strong. I get my strength to face each day through Him. I get the peace when facing a possible stroke because of Him. I wish I could tell each of you face to face - IT'S NOT ME…IT'S HIM!! It's that important.
