Hospital Day # 5 - 12/3/23 PM - Four Affected Arteries to the Brain

 Hospital Day # 5 - 12/3 PM

Brittney’s procedure went well.  🙌🏻 

She is resting now.

All four of her arteries to her brain are affected; one completely blocked (non-repairable), one 73%, one 60%, and one irregular.  Short-term plan is for 2-3 brain stents on Tuesday morning or Wednesday afternoon depending on scheduling.

These blockages weren’t caused by high blood pressure or plaque build up.  This is likely something she was born with (fibromuscular dysplasia, FMD) that led to the arteries tearing.

She is very blessed to have no brain damage or strokes given the seriousness of this!!!! Thank you for your prayers!

Ways to pray:

  • scheduling of her brain stenting procedure
  • good rest & no strokes or setbacks
  • peace and comfort for our daughters during this separation and waiting
  • wisdom for the doctors as they coordinate for the surgery

Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Hospital Day # 5 - 12/3/23 AM - A Diagnostic Brain Catheterization

 Hospital Day # 5 - 12/3 AM

Brittney is back for her diagnostic brain catheterization procedure now; we should know more in about two hours.  

There are 4 major arteries supplying blood to the brain.  It seems that Brittney has serious issues with 3 of those arteries (one blocked) and irregularities in the 4th.  God is answering your prayers as she hasn’t had a stroke yet and there are no signs of brain damage.  We are so thankful to God!!

Thanks for your continued prayers!

Ways to pray:

- for protection from stroke and complications

- for the doctors to see everything that they need to see

- for wisdom in their recommendations and for our decision making for next steps

- for complete healing in the days ahead

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Note: I included the brain diagram because it is amazing how God designed the vascular system of the brain…to include ways to reroute blood around some blockages! God is good!
