I'm asking for prayer for my husband Trevor please. He had a stroke last Friday it has affected his right side he has no sight in his right eye and no feeling in his right arm and leg. He will have an MRI and other test so we will know more today .THANKYOU my cute family for you love and support Monika

Update on Trevor
I have been visiting him in hospital many days over the last 5 weeks so not always finding time to let you know where he is up to ,The drs saw us on Friday and said they are trying to get him home on Australia day 26 th of January ,its been a long hard road ,They also said that he will come home 60 % of his normal self ,He is able to walk with a walker and is starting to use his mobil phone to ring me on the days I don't visit.Thank you again for your prayers I can see they are surely working

These are 2 daughters Deborah on the left Rebecca on the right.I went to visit today he was not good at all very upset saying he is not getting physio, the nurses told me he had 5 sessions but can not remember them ,its so sad seeing him like this .He is not eating so the suggest i make him some meals and the will freeze them ,my daughter Deb was able to drop them in on her way home, she said he scoffed it and said he loved the flavour, i guess thats what happens after 48 years of my cooking, thanks again for you support and prayers



Thankyou for your thoughts and prayers, some of our family got to spend Christmas day with Trevor at the hospital, Our eldest daughter brought a lovely picnic lunch, which we had in one of the gardens at the hospital, unfortunately its very dry due to the drought and water restrictions Trevor loved seeing 4 of our grandchildren and being outside. Thankyou again Monika

Thanks for the update. What a great picture of you both and other family.

by cfidl 26 Dec 2019

I pray his recovery is swift and complete. It is so heartbreaking watching a loved one struggle with health issues. The doctor was right to suggest you first take care of yourself. It is a lovely picture of your family and these moments are most important and precious. Best wishes for 2020.

Thank you for the update. I am glad you were able to spend some time with Trevor, even ir it was in the hospital. Hoping that soon Trevor will be able to come home.

They are saying 2 to 3 months

by babash 19 Dec 2019

Sending a Prayer for Trevor. I can see why the Doctor suggested you have a day or so at home he can see how the stress is affecting you.
I know from recent experience how tiring it is to have a loved one in Hospital. I was using public transport and it was a 6 hour day and I was very tired at times. So if you are driving you need to be extra careful especially at this time of the year on the roads.

Good advise. Twice I went through a red light during times like these. The mind is somewhere else, so be careful Monika. Keeping you in my prayers. Hugs

by aussiequilter 19 Dec 2019

Thank you for all your kind words and prayers ,Trevor has been moved to the rehab ward ,its so difficult to see him so helpless and needing assistance for everything. Im so thankful that he has his speech even though his memory slips up .Thhe dr suggests i have a couple of days at home its anout an hour and a half each way to the hospital. Thankyou all once again Monika

The doctor's suggestion is a good one. You can not take care of Trevor if you are not taking care of you. Prayers continue.

by rescuer Moderator 15 Dec 2019

Prayers for you, the doctors/therapists, and Trevor! May you all feel the love and get healing from God.

by graceandham 15 Dec 2019

Of course, Monika, we will be praying from here! He has about six months to get recovery, or that's what the doctors say in USA. So, there's time for therapy and prayer to be effective.
