Mild Stroke! By God’s Grace He Saves Indeed

On the 6th of August 2019, I was hospitalized at St Luke’s. Doctors saw through MRI, a blot clot in my brain. Their diagnosis- a mild stroke! Somehow, numbness was felt in my right arm and my pinchers (pointer finger and thumb) could hardly move.

My wife was beside me all the time. She was weary and sad but I knew she prayed intimately. It was her comfort that Father God will just be right there to stay with us. She knew that all will end up in His glory. She is a breast cancer victim and she is surviving it. Oh, how noble she was by watching over her sick husband. All we had was to trust in God’s mercy as we have always done in the past. He has never forsaken us who sincerely beg for His help.

Another day of observation at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) was necessary for a possible deadly recurrence. Doctors advised a regular check of vital signs. For me it was a moment to call on Father God again. Coming to Him has become a recourse whenever we encountered an emergency situation like this.

My blood pressure began to normalize surprisingly! The attending doctor told me I was fortunate because nothing worse happened. Except for the slight numbness in my right arm the rest of my motor skills were functioning well. I saw it as another blessing instead! Now my right fingers are back to normal. Father God, once again, has made Himself felt in us.

Today there are two witnesses for you of God’s love and sincerity- my wife who has a breast caner (3rd stage b) and I who was hit by a mild stroke. These are only among many miracles we experience in our daily life. Obviously, He touches us to return to Him. He is indeed real!

He is waiting for you!

  1. Lucky indeed. I nearly had one January 2018. My nose bled profusely and I got rushed to the Aleosan District Hospital. There, my blood pressure was found to be all time high: 260/180. I was conscious, I had no stroke. The doctors just wanted to be sure that I was referred to St. Paul’s Hospital that same night. The MRI cleared me of any stroke.

    Dr. Joefil Acosta the following morning was surprised that I remain conscious despite. “I have referred you to the ICU,” he told me the next morning. He had my oxygen respirator removed but asked me to spend another day at the hospital to be sure.

    I got discharged at the hospital the next day.
