Zahava Stroke Update – Day 6

Once again we spent the day in hospital with my mother. At the moment her body is showing signs of recovery, however what we really need to see is signs of recovery from the stroke, which so far have been minimal.

The good news is her heart rate is looking more regular and she breathes on her own. Her movement is minimal however, and we don’t know exactly how conscious she exactly is.

Our main focus now is being with her every day, holding her hand and seeing if her mind will repair. It could take a long time, so patience is the main ingredient (plus all of your wonderful prayers and love – thank you!).

I will report again later in the week as I can.

Thank you,

Yaro and on behalf of Phil.

Dear Yaro

I just saw your tweet about spending long hours at the hospital, and wanted to leave you a message here. I’m so sorry to read about your mother’s stroke, and I wanted to send all positive thoughts to you both and her partner. Your mention of spending time in the hospital reminded me of when my father had cancer and was nil by mouth for nearly 4 months and I made daily visits (one of the major bonuses of working for myself meant that I could organise my own time, as I’m sure you’re grateful for being able to do now too). There are no adequate words, but I hope it will help to know that my father pulled through, pretty much against all the odds, and it was said in no small part to our daily visits and simply us being there – together with his innate curiosity and love of life, which I’m sure your mother possesses in bucketfulls too. Anyway, I just felt compelled to leave a message for you and send you my very best wishes at this time.

Praying for God’s mercy and healing hand for your mom, and for peace that passes all understanding for you and Phil. God’s Grace is awesome.

Wow Yaro, I just saw your post and — above all else — am holding knowing thoughts your mom can heal from this if she wants to.

I love what Dr. John DeMartini says: “Incurable means ‘curable from within’.”

Of course, that may not make this process much easier for you, so you’ve got my healing intentions every bit as much as your mom does.

Peace to you both…

Hi Guys,
Felt compelled to leave a message, your mother has helped me a lot over the past year and I hope to see her improving as quickly as possible. Sounds like she has all the company and care needed at this time, so with that I hope to read a blog in the near future telling of her positive and sucsessful recovery.
Take care and best wishes.
