The Fragility of Life

This has been a tough day. It was about 6:30 tonight that I got a call from my wife, asking that I check on my mother. She had gotten a call from a friend of mom's who reported she seemed very confused.

Well, turns out that, at the very least, she fell. At worst mom has had a small stroke.

She was very confused when I got to her home. She wasn't sure where she was. She didn't know whose pill box she was holding. She couldn't tell me where she lived until I gave her the first digit of her street address.

She's had a c.a.t. scan, and they said that there is some vascular constriction in the brain but didn't see signs of a stroke.

So, she's in the hospital now and I'm happy to say it's a reasonably good one. We are trusting God with her, knowing He is the giver and sustainer of life.

Mom is 84 and is otherwise in reasonably good health. We just pray that the symptoms of stroke...short term loss of memory...will continue to subside, as they appear to be doing.

Thank you for your readership, friendship and support.
