Last Wednesday I had an appointment with the Neurologist.
Now let me back up just a minute….. We had been trying to see this doctor since October of last year! Back and forth with rescheduling because of weather etc.
(At first I must say that I was pretty nervous for the appointment. Yet as time went on and we prepped for the appointment, I knew in the back of my mind what the doctor was going to say. )
So the day finally arrived, we made sure that on this rainy day, that we would be there early as possible to assure there was not even a chance that we would miss our appointment.
We met with the Doctor and asked him a few questions. Such as what other health issues (besides a stroke) should I be aware of? What is the likely hood that I have another stroke? What can I expect for my recovery in the months ahead? Am I on target?
His answer to all of these were what I expected…
“Each person is unique. I simply don’t know what to tell you to expect.”
It was disappointing to wait such a long time for that appointment just to hear those words (even though I had predicted he would say that). However, In my heart I had determined that no matter what the outcome. Good or bad. Or unknown. I was going to trust and lay my outcome in the hands of Jesus.
