This morning at fourteen minutes after six I woke suddenly hearing Eric saying, “Oh no; I’ve got a ‘brain freeze’”. It is his explanation of a mystery that happens in his brain, and has been for four years.
Eric, my hubby of thirty eight years, has a problem. The tests on every part of his body have been extensive. The doctors have determined that he is cancer free. But now, with the scans and tests showing a healthy brain and body, there is a mysterious problem that happens about every eight weeks. He gets the “brain freeze”, chills run down to his chest, sometimes nausea, and sometimes his memory fails. The episodes, as I call them, come and go for twenty-four hours to thirty-six.
The pot is cracked. The Neurologist and all the rest of his team of doctors have just said, “Call us if any new symptoms show.”
So, we are cast on God. It is a good place to be! After the incident this morning, still lying in the darkness, I prayed for Eric. Then a song came into my head, “In shady green pastures so rich and so sweet, God leads His dear children along . . . Some through the waters, some through the flood, some through the fire, but all through the blood.”
Eric and I have accepted the Redemption of Jesus; our sins are washed by His sinless blood. We are OK.
Still, a favorite Psalm is my continual prayer, “O LORD my God, I cried unto You and You have healed me.” Psalm 30:2
Eric will be mended sooner or later.
