I told Dr. Singidas that we are praying for the Lord’s hand upon him. He will conduct the coiling. Curious, he asked, “What church do you belong?” I said, “We’re Baptists. We believe the Bible. We’re trusting the Lord to guide you, for a successful operation.” Even in crisis, I was able to share with him about the power of the Lord.
The doctor said the operation will take 3 hours. He finished in just 2. It was a success! The angiogram showed it. After 1 day in the ICU, Mylene was transferred to a regular room. She was discharged 2 days later.
Today, she’s recuperating fast. During the first week, she felt tired every day. The doctors said no going around for 1-2 months! That means no malling and no shopping! Praise God! Depending on her recovery, she can get back to work after that. She continues to take 3 kinds of medicines—for her stroke, migraine, and high cholesterol.
Somebody asked me how I managed to keep a smiling face in the hospital. What she didn’t know was that I didn’t have a tear left to cry. I remember people asking me, “How are you now?” Those words bless me. It tells me that people care for Mylene, praying for her, supporting me.
