This weekend Tim's mom has had two strokes.
Her first one was Saturday morning and her second one was Sunday afternoon. She is at home, our niece a trained nurses aid, was with her for the first one, and Tim's sister who is an RN was with her for the second one.
Jean (Tim's mom), is 95 years old and has short term memory loss dementia. She has her will and her medical decisions all laid out and prepared. Today, she will see her doctor.
Jean knows and loves Jesus, her Savior. She has served him her whole adult life, doing mission work in West Africa for 23 years, serving stateside, doing prison ministry. She has practiced hospitality over the years, including having long term guests in her home.
We all don't know what the Lord's plan is for her, but we are trusting that ALL His ways are good. He has sustained her these many years, through the loss of two children in Africa, and the loss of two husbands. He is sustaining her still.
When we had a chance to speak with her on Saturday, she could not speak but she could laugh! And laugh she did.
What an amazing woman.
What a gift to us she is.
We are thankful for her.
