Unexpected twists in life

>> Wednesday, July 11, 2012

At the age of 35, with no risk factors, I had a stroke on Sunday afternoon.  So far I've regained everything but my index and thumb on my right hand. THANK YOU for the amazing support everyone has offered us.  Typing is a bit hard, so I'll just cut and paste from Lanse's Facebook post for posterity, and anyone who may read here and not there.


We were driving home on Sunday afternoon from visiting Jessica’s parents in Charlotte over the weekend. We had stopped at the Summerville Burger King to feed the boys before we got home, and the stroke hit just after she had parked the car and opened the door. Had this happened five minutes earlier, we would have been a high-speed smear down the I-26 median, which is also rather mind-blowing.

We got to Trident Hospital within half an hour and she was admitted quickly. The MRI showed a minor stroke, and we were there until yesterday afternoon. Jessica is now home, and is expected to make a nearly full recovery.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and your support in other ways, it is amazingly helpful and we really really appreciate it!

Since my last general post here on Rediscovering Me, we were blessed with two foster boys, currently both aged 3 (one just turned, one to be 4 next week). I've been, understandably, eaten mostly alive.  I've posted a few times since June 6 on the adoption blog, linked above, and that's where I'm brain dumping my ideas on parenting. Feel free to jump on over there and see what's going on in our world right now. 


About This Blog

Life is about changes; transitions from one place to another, from one purpose to another, from one being to another. They say that the person you are today is a completely different person from who you were ten years ago and who you'll be ten years from now. So far, at the age of 33, I've had four major transitions in my life which redefined who I am. Two years into the results of the most recent transition I am again - still - exploring how God is shaping me. Over the next few months I hope to review my past and set goals for the future, and embrace the next adventure of rediscovering me.
