~A Miracle & A Blessing~
A few days ago I asked for prayer for my mom who was going to have surgery on her carotid artery which was "very seriously" blocked according to the ultra sound which was read by her physician. She was sent to a surgeon who specializes only in carotic artery surgery, and the appt. was made for one week from the original diagnosis. She had much prayer during that week, and I had made arrangements to go there and care for her. On Wed. she went to the surgeon, and he did another ultra sound on both sides of her neck. He told her that her carotid arteries were good, very healthy! What???! She told him that her doctor had said that it was very seriously blocked..how can that be? The surgeon explained that she had a small block in a vein leading to her face, but that there are several veins that lead to the face, and that they would take over for the blocked one, further that the blockage would break up on their own, and that it was common for someone of her age to experience this occurance. No surgery~go home..enjoy your life-You are fine! Wow! I cried when my mom called and told me the news, she was crying too! I believe in Miracles!! Thank you Lord!!
P.S. My dog is really happy too as I unpacked my clothes and cancelled the boarding appointment for her. My hubby is thrilled that I will be here to spend his vacation with him. And I am so thankful that my dear, sweet mom doesn't have to undergo more surgery, and that she is in good health. What a week! Thank you so very much for your prayers and I wish for you many many Blessings~
