Back again

Good morning, Dear friends and Prayer Partners,

I just wanted to make a brief explanation about my absence the past few days. I woke up Thurs. morning with a severe pain in my right leg and after eating breakfast felt light-headed, so laid down on the sofa and fainted for about 10 or 15 minutes. I didn't think I had to call the doc,  and my friend and yard man was coming, so he brought in Louis' wheeled walker and after being encouraged to call the doc, I checked with Brian, and got an app't for 3.30. Well, he told me to go to the ER, which I did, without any supper. We were in the ER for seven hours, taking tests  to rule out stroke, heart attack, etc. and finally got a room at 11:30.

I had every test except an MRI, including CT scan, chest x-rays, eeg, ultrasound of the carotids, blood tests and heart monitor also BP meds to bring down very high BP. 

The results....I am healthy, everything checked out normal (for me) and the problem seems to be vasovagos (don't think that is spelled right). In other words, my brain does not always get enough oxygen when I get up suddenly from sitting or lying, so it will probably happen again. I am slowly regaining my strength, because being in bed for a couple days, kinda takes the starch out of me.
I will be back maybe tomorrow with the devotional. For those of you who knew and were praying for me, thank you from the bottom of my heart! God is good!

Love and hugs,
