Update on my Health

Many have been praying for me this weekend, and I really appreciate it. I was hesitant to spread the news further than close friends and family, but I would appreciate more prayer from others…

On Thursday I hit my head pretty hard, which the doctors say resulted in a minor concussion. A bigger and somewhat alarming issue is that since Friday afternoon I have not been able to process my thoughts verbally. I can use my voice, and say a few words here and there, but forming sentences has not been possible.

I have been meeting with doctors since Friday and will continue to meet with them this coming week. The neurologist says the concussion and the voice issue are not directly related. One doctor has said my issue could suddenly resolve itself and is possibly be a result of stress among other things. Regardless, everyone is confident I will be restored to full health soon. In the mean time, I’ll be keeping a low profile and getting lots of rest. Other than my voice issue and some lingering effects of a concussion, I am completely fine.

If you wish to communicate anything to me, email is the best method. I don’t mind visitors, but if you are expecting a conversation you might be disappointed.

The following passage has been encouraging and strengthening to me as I’ve been dealing with this health issue.

Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

(Isaiah 41:10)
