Sometimes it's like pulling teeth. Why there's so much resistance in some situations is beyond me, but it seems to be a fact of life. So, over a week after Stu's seizure we finally got an appointment with a doc who was covering for his vacationing PCP, and he confirmed what I had suspected----that such seizures are very common after a stroke. It was just good to have a doctor examine and advise us. We had the option of starting him on an anti-seizure medication, but because it's the first one, and there is no pattern of seizures, we chose to hold off on yet another medication. Stu also has a follow up appointment with his regular doctor in July, and that will be a relief to have him evaluated.
I would appreciate prayer for wisdom in dealing with these situations that crop up----the medical community speaks a language that is quite foreign to me. I often feel like a stranger in a strange land----one with land mines! On a bad day, it feels like one false step will send me and Stu into irrevocable harm. Grateful for a friend who reminded me today that I am not the one calling the shots : " You did the best you could. God clued you in when you were to be clued
in. I think as humans we tend to operate out of prevention. Stop the
bad thing from happening! Find a way to never let it happen again! God
is not thinking in those terms. God has his ways! He seems to be bent
on teaching us something. He loves in a way that is out of this world.
Or at least out of something we don't love from. Cause we don't love
like He does." I have trouble remembering that. Guess that's why I have friends to remind me sometimes. And I am passing it on to you! And still asking for prayer as I stumble through this experience. Thanks, Friends!
