I have so much to be thankful for.
After the past 3 days I realize just how much
GOD has been by my side.
Let me share a little of what has been going on...
my hubs had been dealing with what we thought
were sinus infection issues.  On Wednesday evening
he lost sight, temporarily, in his right.
No, we did not go right away to emergency.
The next day though, our Doctor said
go *now*!
After a long day in the ER, my hubby was finally
admitted to the hospital for more testings.
Long story short...
he has a rare condition in which the
inner portion of his curated artery tore,
causing blood to clot, which was found in a CT
scan.  In this condition surgery is NOT an option
but blood thinning thereputicly is.
He was/and is dealing with head/neck pain that was
from this.  He is now on meds
to help with headaches and this new condition.
We have so much to be thankful for.
This has NOTHING to do with his heart, he
is very healthy and the cause is yet unknown
as to why he had this happen.
He does not fit the norm of those patients they
would see this in.
I know it could have been so much worse.
WE are so thankful for GOD's peace,
his being present throughout this whole ordeal,
and family/friends who have held us up prayer.
I am so thankful to have my hubby with me
to yet again celebrate yet again another
Thanksgiving Day! 

Yes, I am thankful!

I just said Thank you Lord for your hubby.As I read your blog.

My hubby had similar thing many years ago. His turned out we got it in time and it was a detached retina.So he had to be operated on les then an hour. My son-law drove him to St. Michaels in Toronto.As we had a far distance to go and get there fast.

His cousin had same thing but he went totaly blind in one eye.Sad to say. I think I was told he did not respond fast enough.


WOW and also thankful that your hubby will be okay and didn't need surgery. It's still a little scary. God is faithful!
I'm thankful for you!
May your Thanksgiving be Blessed!
