You Never Know

You just NEVER know......

I know that you are like me and see death and sickness all around you.  It is everywhere.  BUT....lately, it just seems like we have experienced more and more strokes.

January 4th, one of  our 48 year old ladies suddenly could not feel her foot or legs and had tingling.  She called her doctor and he told her to go to the ER.  There they stablized her and sent her to a larger hospital, where they did an MRI.  The doctor read the MRI and came and to talk to her and her boyfriend.  In short, she was told she had a large navel orange size brain tumor.....and it was cancer.  They has gone threw radiation and chemo.........they did more tests and are giving hr 6 months to a year to live.

A week and half ago, the twenty year old cousin of our daughter-in-law  was rushed to the hospital and then airlifted to UT Hospital, where they found she had a large blood clot at the base of her brain.  They decided to try to dissolve it since surgery would be so dangerous  They were able to dissolve it and she is doing much better.

A week ago, a 42 year old daughter of our school janitor was found knocked out and non-responsive.  She was taken by ambulance to the hospital and then airlifted to a larger hospital.  She did not make it.  She left three children.

Sunday, more of our members Nanny had a massive stroke.  She is 81 years old and the doctors only gave her a 10% chance of surviving.  Today, she responded on command and even weakly said the word stroke when asked if she knew what happened to her.

It doesn't matter how old you are or how young you are.  It does not matter how rich or poor you are.  When it is your time for sickness or even death, there is nothing you can do.  

We should all strive to live our lives to the point that if Jesus came back today, we would be ready......because.........

You just Never Know.
