Stroke (Feb 1999)(I could finally button a button in Sept 2003/I have never fully recovered but still have a little jump forward at times 2007) By: Frances McCrory Meservy 1999
We're in Sears my husband and me: He says "You don't have to do anything:"
I feel weird and off balance you see. I thought I had to do most everything.
My right leg, arm, and face are numb I leave the cart to pick up my BP med.
I must need food - oh how dumb. Prayer gets me home and to bed.
We’d just come from the Doctor I take the pill and no joke
Who didn't think feeling weird a factor. God stops the stroke.
Even though my BP was 210/140 I know I’m drained of energy
He gave me a script to go. And filled with lethargy.
I eat and drop off my script to fill I'm trying to stay a little longer.
Run errand to hospital surreal. Things seem to get stranger
I go back to Dillon's. As my spirit wants to escape to higher life.
Now I am drunk and weigh tons. And then a tug because I want to stay Al's wife.
I’m shopping for my mother-in-law & me I ask the doctor: recovery, how long?
When I realize what’s going to be. He doesn't know - I don't belong.
I argue with God about my condition: I should be dead
I make a long drawn out rendition. But God healed my head.
