how drastically your life (or that of a loved one) can change so drastically in a day. Time will tell how well my mom will recover after suffering a stroke a week before Thanksgiving. She is out of the hospital (a bit too early IMHO) but she was anxious to get back into daily living. She has aphasia which has effected her ability to speak, process, read & write. Regaining it is all ahead of her. She is ambulatory and one might think her able looking at her from a distance, but we know better. Speech therapy is a must for her and for the time being she cannot live alone.
We have been blessed with prayers from all over which are greatly appreciated.
During this season of gratitude I am, in spite of how challenging it might be, instead of feeling too down about the chain of events instead I will look for the positive. For now, thank God, mom is still alive and fighting!!
