News From A Far....

AN UPDATE FROM AMY; Faye's daughter

Hello, to all my mother's blogging buddies! I hope you are all well and thank you for keeping my mama inspired!
I am writing to give you an update and a prayer request. As you know several weeks ago, the doctor found "a spot" on Faye's lung, but miraculously, at her last visit, the x-ray showed nothing. Well, most likely, what happened was this "spot", which we now know was a blood clot, moved, and this movement caused Faye to have a stroke. The Lord intervened, one more time, and put the right people in the right place, at the right time.
Her sister-in-law saw the early warning signs and got her the immediate, life saving help she needed.... She was in the hospital for 3 days. The homecoming was a bit confusing for her, but the doctor says the "long term memory loss" should recover. Her left eye was drawn some, but the doctor believes the swelling and even the drawing should go away with time. Do pray for her leg, though. It is giving her a bit of trouble. Just enough to keep her from driving, but there again, the doctor says therapy should help.
She and Dwight are in Summerville, and was here when the stroke happened! I thank God us girls were close to help, and my older sis even came down from Chicago to help, as well.
They will be here in Summerville for a while to allow for rest and full recovery! I will keep her updated on all your warm comments!! She says she misses you and loves you all...


In the meantime, Dad, Dwight, has caught a bug... Probably a repercussion from the stress... This bug has turned into pneumonia. He is in need of your prayers, as well. He is a wonderful, strong man, but even they can get down, too. Pray for his spiritual and physical strength.

Thank you!
Amy Whitlock

  9. Oh my goodness! I was just thinking about Faye yesterday and praying for her. I'll be praying for a speedy recovery for everyone. My mom had a stroke in January so it can indeed be challanging. BTW, my mom's eye droop and mouth have already corrected themselves, I am sure hers will too. God bless all of you.
