When It Rains....
On December 20th, Sunday, my life partner of 25 years was taken to the hospital by the life squad. She is still there.
My emotions are too raw and my body to exhausted to go into detail, but basically what it comes down to is that she has suffered what are called "evolving strokes" in the past 2 weeks.
Her mind is clear, she can speak, but she has lost the use of her left arm as of last Friday. She can move her legs but is too weak to stand for more than a minute.
She is beyond exhausted, but her spirit is amazingly strong.
The doctors and therapists are hopeful for a full recovery and have been very encouraging.
We are in the process of getting her into the best stroke rehab program in the area. She may go today if a bed opens up. Now we are just waiting on that.
My prayer is that she will eventually be able to come home and continue to get her therapy here through home health care and proceed to full recovery.
Please keep her in your prayers. Her name is Martha and she is only 66 years old.
