Devastated

Wednesday, August 03, 2016

Well it did not go as I had hoped at the neurologist's office this morning. He is going to send me to UAMS which is about 4 hours away. He said I need brain surgery to repair the aneurysm. I really don't know much more than that right now. I have to wait for UAMS to call me and set up a consultation and probably tests on my lungs to see if they think I can withstand the surgery given my other health issues. I am devastated and still in shock at the same time. Having to tell my family has been rough. My life is literally in the hands of the doctors at UAMS. If they do not think I can handle the surgery then it is a waiting game to see how much longer I have til it bursts. I do know that God is on my side, I just have to get over the initial shock of what he said today.
Anyway time to keep my hands busy and get back to making things for my granddaughter's birthday this weekend.
Thank you for listening and for your prayers! I can use all those I can get.
God bless you and keep you on your journey! Have a fabulous day!

    My wonderful friend,

    you have been in my prayers since I met you here on Spark. You are one of the most amazing and strongest people I know, and I am certain that our Lord has a fantastic plan for you. Let's trust Him in all that is coming your way. I will pray for wisdom for your doctors, and courage and peace for yourself. He does not make any mistakes, so whatever He has in store for you will be for His glory. Wish I could swing by, deliver hugs and a nice cup of tea to you.

    Please keep us updated on what is going on. You are not alone here!! Oh, and my inner warrior always resorts to Psalm 91 (someone already mentioned that here). It has always brought me strength and peace. And the will to fight, no matter what.

    Sending hugs!

    emoticon I have never had an aneurysm, however, I have had a scary walk with cancer. So I know somewhat of the emotions that come.

    Remember to take one day at a time and keep your mind fixed on your faith...hang on to the truth...you are loved...God is with you always....He will never leave you.

    Your mind is a powerful thing, ...so use it to focus on positive uplifting thoughts....keep the scary ones in check.

    praying for you.... emoticon

    Sorry that the news was so hard! On the other side, my uncle lived with an aneurism for 45 years, and with medication did well. I will keep you in my heart and prayers~ emoticon emoticon

    I don't know you but I would love to friend you and listen if you need a computer shoulder. I'm new at this and you can keep me motivated to come back daily. Just let me know if that's something you need. No matter what you have my prayers.
