Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am a very blessed person!
It has been several weeks now since my June 20 cerebral hemorrhage, and I am here to give heartfelt thanks to all of you who offered your very kind prayers and thoughtful good wishes for me and my family! Your cards, notes, lit Grotto candles, expressions of encouragement, and again, especially prayers have helped me through this ordeal.
The doctors are still amazed I did not pass out at my desk when the hemorrhage occurred and that I did not incur speech impairment or paralysis. I was in ICU for 18 days, and then the doctors realeased me to recover and mend at home. Headaches and fatigue were the norm through July, however, August has been a month of rebuilding my stamina and rejuvenation! I started working part time in late July and I was back to full time two weeks ago. But, I still need to pace myself each day, the brain healing process will be ongoing for a while as my body recovers.
Because the cerebral angiograms did not reveal what caused my bleeding or where, my neurological doctors say there is a 30% chance it could happen again. I told them I’m going to be in the 70% group!
So, I am doing well. God is good!! His grace is powerful and pure. Our Lady continues to watch over me with love and care!! And, the wonderful friendship you all bestow upon me is precious.
I am blessed. Thank you again!
