Thanking the Lord...

We had a series of scares this week when my husband, Cliff, got double vision in one eye. We started out with an ear, nose and throat doctor because we thought it may have come from an ear ache and infection. Next we visited his heart doctor who is also an internal medicine doctor also and discovered his triglycerides were very high. Then we went to his eye doctor who referred him to a neuro opthamologist. She thinks that he had a stoke in his eye that has damaged the eye muscle and that the double vision will repair itself in several months!!!
We go back to her for a MRI this Thursday to be sure...
He is resting well and eating with better nutrition in mind.

Needless to say, I am exhausted...these doctors are located in two towns about 45 miles and 90 miles from Kinston.

We are thankful 
that it is not worse than it is
that it will repair itself
that Cliff can learn from this experience
that the Lord is in him healing him as I write...

Remember us as you pray
and as always,
blessings my blog friends!!

  1. I know it has bee a hard week for you, I had a stroke in my right eye back 11 years ago, it did clear up in a few months

  2. So sorry to hear all this, praying that all will be well!


  3. So sorry that your husband had the eye stroke. Hoping it will be well soon. It is hard running to doctors and quite often one has to wait to get an appointment. Nancy

  4. Praying for you both. God is good and will take care of you. Sending hugs and blessings, Michelle

  5. Yes, Kathryn, I will be praying for your husband and for you, too! Hopefully, things will clear up sooner than anticipated.

  6. Praying for you guys!!


  7. I'm happy that all seems to working itself out! It is tough traveling back and forth to hospitals. Been doing that lately with Mama too. Blessings this week for more healing.

  8. I've never heard of an eye stroke. I'm thankful it wasn't more serious. I can imagine you are VERY tired. Stressful things like this can really take it out on you. Make sure you take care of yourself as you take care of your darling hubby.

  9. Kathy, I am sorry to hear about Cliff's problems... We will keep him in our prayers.....
    And you too.........

  10. Kathy,
    What a week you two had last week. Sometimes I think, the scariest of all is when you don't know what is 'wrong'. I am so thankful it sounds like overall, your husband's vision will heal and he'll be 'okay'. I will pray for you both.

  11. Were you able to get good information about what nutrients can help after a stroke? I was led to believe the damage was done, that was the end of it, but when I investigated nutrients, I learned that the right nutrients can lead to great improvement, and much faster than just waiting for healing to happen.
