This morning, I got in my car and I headed off to work. Now, that might not seem like a big deal to many of you but for me, it was cause of celebration.
It was my first day back to work after having had a brain aneurysm rupture and suffering a stroke six weeks ago. My neurosurgeon told me no one hardly ever goes back to work after only six weeks but he was approving me.
I can't help but thank God for this couldn't have been better timing. Today was a "release day" in my school district. That means there were no students today as it was the end of the quarter and we were entering grades and doing other paperwork. This left me free to get things in order for school next week.
Earlier this morning, I took a bit of a break and slipped on down to the vocal music room. Last summer, the vocal music teacher who is a dear sister in Christ, suffered a stroke. She came back on January 4th and learned that I was now out due to a ruptured aneurysm and I'd had a stroke. Oh, I tell you there was some rejoicing when I walked into her classroom. As if on cue, the art teacher who is also a sister in Christ walked in on us. We had a time of sharing and praising God for what He had brought us through!
It is not going to be easy. Teaching twenty-four active seven and eight year-olds in an inner-city school never is, however it is good to be back!
Good to see you back to work. But whatever shall we do without you during the day?.b.
ah so today was the day huh... congratz!!
WOW! You are indeed a walking miracle! God is so great
Considering that some people that have suffered aneurysm bleeds can result in anything from memory loss, unable to walk, need much rehab, and even speech therapy. He was watching over you the whole time for sure. And you have given the glory all back to Him.
Since I didn't know you when this all happened, it is so good to hear your good news. Did you have the clipping or coiling?
My mother died a year ago this month from atherosclerosis that ruptured in her Circle of Willis. She was older and they could not stop the bleeding. She had gotten really confused, hallucinating and talking very out of character, but her last words were "God please take me". And He did. Praise the Lord for being with us through our trials and difficult times.
Much continued, speedy regaining your strength!
Be blessed! Anita
this is awesome! bet the kiddies have missed u! :)
i'm new to CB and Princesses of God, but just want to thank you for sharing and caring for others. May God continue to bless you and provide complete and lasting healing. Love in Christ, Ruth
You and the other believeing teachers at your school must be making a huge difference in the children's lives for you guys to be as physically attacked as two of you have been! How odd that you both suffered similar attacks! May God continue to use all of you to reveal His love through you to the children! Teresa
