Tomorrow I will be meeting my future.
Well, the next step of it anyway.
Ron had a stroke about 2 1/2 weeks ago.
It is called a lacunar infarct…in the right basal ganglia.
It is a scary place to have a stroke.
They can’t always be sure what your future holds after the stroke.
So it was helpful that he was able to get 2 weeks of in house, residential therapy.
Tomorrow, he will leave that program.
Then he will start the less intensive out patient therapy. STOP
At this point, He seems happy this stage is coming.
He describes his discharge as “escaping”
We have now escaped and are home.
Yes, I had to do this in two sittings.
I was falling asleep last night.
He is loving being home for good.
He ate lunch and both of us fell asleep!
Great start wasn’t it?
So we are meeting our future.
We have no idea what it holds.
But the doctor told us last night that Ron far exceeded their hopes
For his therapy.
I am thankful. I had no indication they were so pessimistic.
Ron has worked hard.
But I also think GOD has been doing some healing work.
And for that, I am very thankful!
Thankful for the prayers of GOD’s people.
Thankful for His providence.
For now, He has chosen to keep Ron with us
In a good state of mind.
It is no small thing.
Amen and Hallelujah! I’m so glad he’s making progress and I’ll be holding you up in prayer as you enter this next stage of your caregiver’s journey!
Dear Martha and Ron, you are in God’s hands, wrapped up close to His breast. He knows the plans He has for you and will carry you through. Taking one step at a time, one moment at a time…one after the other. Hold on tightly to Him and to one another.
I lift you in prayer…both of you.
Praising God that Ron recovered so well.
Caring through Christ, ~ linda
yes, he is doing well…except for pneumonia now. that started on sunday. it too is responding to treatment. we are learning to take things one at a time…not my default at all! we are surrounded by loving people and some family as well! thanks for your prayers linda:)
Martha, praying for you and Ron! Sounds like Ron is doing well. God truly is amazing and is a good and gracious God!
he is tara. he is making good progress but it will still be awhile b/f he is totally back to normal. now that he is home, we’ll see how much comes back to him…it’s looking encouraging!
Even though you don’t know what the future holds, we know Who holds the future. Lifting you in prayer today. Following you at FMF. Blessings!
thanks for stopping by julie. he is doing quite well. still needs a good bit of help with getting some scrambled parts of his brain put back in order. being with him over the full 24 hours helps me see where his strengths and weaknesses are.
i’m seeing that having a routine will definitely help us a lot! getting meds in order, showering and eating took quite awhile today. meds are set for the week now so that is out of the way. ron has had a few naps. it’s nice to have a quiet day to settle in.
