Rons Faith Journey
May 16, 2017
My name is Ron. I'm 41 yrs of age. Over 2 1/2 years ago I was living a normal life as a father, husband, new Author, Pastor, Life Coach. Life was fine and I was very busy at it Pursuing My Destiny! I don't remember much other than waking up on March 2nd 2015 in my bed and returning home June 25th in a wheelchair with a hospital bed in my living room waiting on me. On March 8th I experienced my 1st Stroke; by March 15th I went from 1 to 3 Strokes. I went from laughing talking eating just having a normal life minus a few complications to not talking or eating from March 2015 to March 2016. Eventually the doctors discovered I had a Neuro Disease called Moya Moya and the only way to save my life was by having by pass surgery on both sides of my brain.
I was transported from the Hospital in Melbourne to a Hospital in Miami where the surgeon was waiting on me. After the second side was complete I ended up on life support for almost 2 Months. My family was there by my side every day not knowing what to expect but they held on to their Faith and pariently waited for the outcome.
I spent a Month in therapy and currently my wife and my 12 & 15 yr old care for me at home. I have not regained my ability to walk yet, I can't roll over yet or lift myself up but because of our Strong Faith in God, we know He's going to do it. Thank you for taking this Faith Journey with me (us).
