    Hate to Post This...

    Well Thursday Pat and I got home from a night out with friends. When we were settling in Pat complained of a bad headache. Whenever that happens I have here check her Blood Pressure. After what happened to me it is just a safety measure, but before we could find the BP cuff she started to just slur her words and I started dialing 911. Less that a minute into the call her left side was paralyzed.

    The EMTs showed up as quick as they could given where we live. I was on the phone with 911 doing what they said I should do for Pat as we waited. We took a 30 minute ride to Lexington's Stoke Center and they got her in right away.

    She had a bleed. It is the size of a glof ball and inoperable. She is still in ICU, but improving. She can speak and move her toes on her left side, but she still requires a feeding tube. It has been pretty intense, but God is faithful and she is improving. Prayers have been answered. The last 24 hours we have been able to wake her to do neurological test and that is a big deal.

    She will be in ICU a few more days and after that a regular room. It is going to be a long rehab after that.

    God is amazing. The Nero Surgeon said I was luck she survived. I do not believe in luck... I believe in Jesus.

    I just wanted to share it with you all. God bless.

    What frightening news. My best wishes to you both for a speedy recovery. I'm not a praying man myself, but she'll be in my thoughts and I hope you keep us updated on her progress.

    Thank you Jesus for allowing Pat to show positive changes. Dan, you were a trooper to be there with her and act quickly. Especially for this type of situation, getting the necessary help right away is so important. Thank goodness they were able to arrive and help her. Godspeed for her recovery!
