Please Pray For My Mom

My mom ended up in the E.R. yesterday with signs of possibly having had a stroke. The CT scans came back clear but they kept her in the hospital overnight because she was not able to walk.

Today, they ran more tests. Still no sign of anything. But now she's having trouble swallowing so they're feeding her through I.V. Because of this, she'll be spending another night there.

Please join us in prayer for her healing and also that the doctors will be able to figure out what is going on. Overall, she's feeling fine,  her mind is clear, speech is good. Other than high blood pressure(which may have been triggered by having to go to the E.R.), her ailments are that she cannot swallow and her left leg isn't functioning.

While I know that I wouldn't be able to do anything to make the situation better, it is difficult to be clear across the country from her when something like this is going on. 

Thank you for your prayers!

Edited To Add: The doctors have concluded that she did indeed have a stroke. Not a severe one, though.  They are waiting for the swelling in her throat to go down so an MRI can be done. She will be in the hospital at least another day, if not longer. 

Right after I posted this, my brother texted us and said that the physical therapist was able to help her take a short walk down the hall with her using a walker. She is doing some better tonight than she was this morning. Praise the Lord!
