Yesterday Mom (94 years young) was fine until after nap. She got up unable to walk or move her feet. Boy was she MAD. Her mind was great. Her speech was right on target. The only indication of a MINI-STROKE was the fact that she could not stand up and move her feet.
Of course, those of you who know me, know that healthy food is the answer to much of our problems according to me. Well after my beloved husband and I got her seated by the Greenbrier Golf Classic on TV, I boiled eggs and made stuffed deviled eggs. Protein for the body gone funky. Bob was the look out incase Mom needed anything. She watched the golf and talked. Then it was time to get up and go to the table. NO. Her body was struggling. We made a plate of deviled egg and blueberries. She ate every bite but no improvement.
We both knew what had happened, but neither of us would say the words, then I texted my nurse friend. She knew instantly what had happened. We decided to stay and watch Mom for a few hours. Each little bit was better than the last. By the time a couple of hours passed and the golf tournment was over for the day Mom was able to move her feet with help.
Each person responds differently to body happenings. Mom responded to nutrients and tender care and lots of prayers. If she had not we would have been off to the ER. If her face had dropped or her speech had been slired, we would have gone the minute we discovered the happenings. That was not her case and today she is once again walking on her own and enjoying the last day of the Greenbrier Golf Tournment.
We thank God for the blessing of life. Keep us all in your prayers.
