Polly's diagnosis of Moyamoya, one year out

This morning in church Polly was fussy. She ended up with me in the service. I get nervous when she fusses after what happened last year. After a while she settled. As we stood and sang along with the worship music I couldn't help but thank God for her health.
Around this time last year (on October 17th to be exact) Polly had a stroke. She was diagnosed with Moyamoya syndrome. It was a difficult six months: recovery from her stroke, brain scans and visits to specialists and two brain surgeries to combat Moyamoya.
Moyamoya will always be a part of Polly's life, but we are on the other side of a very scary time in our lives. And Polly is doing great! She still takes seizure medication and aspirin for blood flow. She visits her neurologist and neurosurgeon every few months. But over all, she is fine.
I am thankful to God.

  1. I am thankful to God too. You have sure been through a lot and yet you still show so much grace.


I'd love to hear from you!
