Thankfulness Overflows!!!

Dear Praying Friends,

Mom was admitted to Harrisburg Hospital yesterday after having been discharged from Holy Spirit Hospital on Monday. She had another unresponsive episode, except this time, I suspected she was having a stroke. Her whole right side was "dead," and although she was awake and looked at us as we spoke, she was unable to verbally respond except with a moan. I just kept kissing her, telling her that I loved her, and praying as Dad and I waited for the ambulance to arrive. I was attempting to encourage Mom to speak and said, "Mom, tell me that you love me." All she could do was moan and look at me with such love. I knew what she was trying to say, but couldn't.

Mom was suppose to go to Holy Spirit Hospital, but the ED doctor diverted her to Harrisburg Hospital because she had brain bleeding symptoms and they had no neurosurgeon on call. My brothers and sisters came to the hospital because we didn't know what condition Mom would be in. To my delight, Mom was coming out of it when we arrived. She told us how she heard everything Dad and I were saying, but could not move or respond. Then she looked at me and said, "I love you, my baby girl." Thankfulness overflows me!!!!

Please pray that there is no residual effect of this stroke and that the doctors are able to prevent further incidents. For those of you that I called in the midst of the situation, a huge thanks!!! During the trip to the hospital, I could feel your prayers. The Presence of Jesus was tangible and I could feel Him like electricity on my skin. He is so good!!!

You all are a blessing to my family and me!!

All for Jesus,
Beautiful Grace :)

That was a beautiful response from your mom. I am so glad she is alright. It was amazing to know she heard everything too and that you were both speaking love and encouragement to her. I will be praying.
