Prayers Please! UPDATE

 Dear Ones, Mr. Precious wanted to send out a thank you for all your prayers on Facebook so I wanted to share it here too. He is doing so well and we thank you for your prayers.

From my husband, George:
I want to thank everyone for your prayers and well wishes. They were definitely heard and honored. My Jesus is so great! I had a stroke but the only effect was my vision was a little off. It's believed this all happened possibly from a hyper thyroid and I will see an endocrinologist on Monday for medication to treat it. I'm doing great and I'll be back running my five miles every other day very shortly. Again, I say thank you!


And I say - God bless you all and I send my love to you.


Dear Ones, I just wanted to put up a very quick post. If you follow me on Facebook you will know my husband has had some strokes. I took him to the ER Saturday morning after him being dizzy, seeing double and being a bit confused. To make a long story short they discovered he has had multiple little strokes in the area that affects your eye sight. There is nothing else - thank God He has has a myriad of tests and they have all come back with normal results showing no afib. He is in the neuro ICU area and they have been monitoring him constantly and still see no irregular heart rhythms. Just prior to all of this happening we found out he has hyperthyroidism and were waiting for an appointment to see an endocrinologist. He had another test this morning for his thyroid something with iodine. They told us it was possible that the hyper thyroid could have caused the heart to race and cause the stroke. They don't really know. So, they've inserted into his chest a Loop Recorder that will save and send data from his heartbeats to a cardiac place and if there is something irregular, they'll contact us and we'll go from there.

He is in good spirits and may get to come home this afternoon or tomorrow. We go Monday to see the endocrinologist and hopefully get him on some meds to get his thyroid back to normal.

I know I have so many prayer warriors out in Blogland and we would certainly appreciate your prayers. I know nothing is too big for our God.

Just know I love you all and appreciate you so much. Just forgive me for not visiting you for a while till things settle down.

You're all my sweeties,
Shelia ;)

  9. Shelia,

    I suffered two occipital lobe strokes, the first on 12/5 and the second on 1/5. I had the loop recorder put in on 1/6. I lost about 80% of my vision, but can still do everything (to include needlework) but drive. Hope they are able to discover the reason behind the strokes. I will be lifting you and your husband up in prayer!

  30. All the best to both of you. I know this is all very frightening, but it sounds like your Mister is in good hands. The thyroid is a strange little thing that can wreak all manner of havoc in our lives. I have had problems with mine for a very long time, and the silly thing can swing in either direction, like the pendulum on a clock. When it goes into overdrive, it can indeed cause some serious problems. It is very good that he has a diagnosis, because it is very treatable. Good luck!

  35. Cuanto me alegra Sheila..que el tu esposo vaya respondiendo muy bien ante esta situación...Dios mediante todo seguirá bien y siempre en mis oraciones.. La oración tiene poder:

    Jesús nos oye siempre: también cuando parece que calla. Quizá es entonces cuando más atentamente nos escucha; quiere que le pidamos confiadamente, sin desánimo, con fe. Pero no basta pedir; hay que hacerlo con perseverancia, sin cansarnos, para que la constancia alcance lo que no pueden nuestros méritos. Dios ha previsto todas las gracias y ayudas que necesitamos, pero también ha previsto nuestra oración. Pedid y se os dará... llamad y se os abrirá. Y recordamos ahora nuestras muchas necesidades personales y las de aquellas personas que viven cerca de nosotros. No nos abandona el Señor.
