Update: my 91 year old God loving dad in the hospital after suffering two strokes and a brain bleed all in one day. And last Wednesday he suffered something else the doctors described as a vascular reaction to a medication they gave him and had to call the rapid Response team while my mom was there too.
But he has survived all of this!! Which was 💯 Thanks to God! 🙏 Praise be to God!!!! 🙏 There is absolutely no doubt in my mind.
The physio therapist however has now told us my dad is not eligible for the slow stream rehab at the hospital as he requires too much care and will never walk again -period.
My first reaction was being very upset and asking why is this therapist considered God – knowing the future of how well my dad would do in rehab?
My dad has come a long way from when he was brought into the hospital. Yet, because when the therapist came in and out my dad’s walker in front of him and said try to walk and he couldn’t take a step after laying in bed for a month, he also said my dad will never walk again and rehab is futile and that we have to look for 24 hour care at a nursing home.
My dad can now stand and pull himself up onto the stera steady (a device the nurses use to wheel my dad to a chair or to the commode) He can lift one foot at a time and march in place. Some days he lifts his legs high and other days they are smaller lifts, but he does it! But they will not teach him to walk. Or provide any help at all with walking.
I posted about the song “Rattle”, “Yes He can” and how these songs spoke to me and believe they came on at exact times as God was talking to me as I was fervently praying! and now “Look what you’ve done” and “Forever on your side” these songs have also been talking to me!
I truly believe God is present and has been present throughout all of my prayers and I don’t want to now doubt what I believe was and is God’s way of talking to me and putting things in my head. “Dry bones will walk again!” But if I am not or was not supposed to read into it like that, then I pray God shows me. 🙏
But as I pray for God’s Will to be done. It’s hard for me not to feel compelled to advocate for my dad and fight for his right to be given a chance at rehabilitation. He has the strong desire to walk, why not give him a month of rehab and see if he can walk. He isn’t getting into a home anytime soon anyway as they are all booked up.
I am therefore asking for prayer for my father. And for myself to know what to say and when to speak and if to speak or do I just let God work and pray that I hear Him when he calls upon me to talk. 🙏💗‼️ I also ask for prayer for my mom. She is now suffering from a very sore right thigh. This is the same leg she broke her hip.
My parents’ walk with God has always been Incredible! Their love and out pouring of Gods word has never left them even today – so I am having a huge issue wondering why both of my parents’ legs are being affected??? I Pray Earnestly for both of my parents’ legs to be Healed! 🙏💗💯🙌‼️ And with your added prayers as well, let Gods will be done! And His praises be sung!
For my dad to survive all of this and still be singing to God and calling on Jesus’ name! I just see A Miracle Man in my dad! He is so happy and loves God so much, I pray he continues to be a ray of light for all the nurses and doctors and therapists to see! 🙏💗💯🙌‼️
Thank you so so much for your prayers!!!
