Crisis

I never thought I’d write a post like this but here I am, writing to inform my blogging family that I’m going through a severe crisis right now. On Feb. 11, I was diagnosed with a significant case of relapsing-remitting MS. This came as a bitter-sweet relief for me to finally receive answers as to why my condition is progressing. Then on the 21 of Feb. my beloved husband started acting very differently. He seemed excessively tired and as each day went by more and more confused and almost childlike. On Feb. 27th I had my brother get him to a doctor who sent him over to the ER for a head CT scan. A large mass showed up on his brain but they sent him home along with instructions to call oncology asap. 😲 He rapidly declined over the next day so I had him taken by ambulance to the hospital March 1. He was in ICU for 4 days, had a brain biopsy and was released to rehab last Wed, the 10th. We are still awaiting results from his biopsy.

I’m not able to say just how hard this has been but I can say that God is holding me up and I have loads of support from friends and family. If you wish to stay in touch for updates you can find me on Facebook or email me at viviejoy97@gmail.com.

Much love,

Thy Will Be Done

Most of my blogging family has heard about my beautiful mom’s recent stroke. Early September Mama suffered a mild stroke which damaged her right hand and impaired her speech. I am so thankful that she is okay for it could have been far worse and as my friend Dee said, “we could be having a different conversation right now.” God has been so good in how she received urgent care right away due to our doctor (DC) seeing the signs and advising my dad to get her to the hospital right away. (Mama and I have the same chiropractor.)

Mama is getting physical and speech therapy in home which is great due to her already being mostly homebound from cerebral palsy. I’ve written here about my mama’s health condition which has gotten doubly challenging from her stroke. Please pray for my parents and my mama’s therapies to continue to help her and that God continues to uphold them during this trial.

Much love,

Viv
