A Miracle -Mom Bowled an 80

Whooppeeee.......Mom went bowling yesterday with her girl friends and she bowled an 80. (Is an 80 good? It's good enough for me.)

I started blogging when my mom got thrown off of her beloved horse, Mickey.

First I want to say, thank you all for your prayers. How my Mom survived is nothing but a miracle. How my dad was able to figure out how to get over himself long enough to step up to the plate and take care of her is yet another huge miracle. He really has surprised and amazed us.

Mom has her balance back, her short term memory back and most of her motor skills back. Although I haven't been out to visit her since she got out of rehab, I can tell, just by her voice on the phone, that she is back!

I don't think she will ever be able to drive a car anymore due to the damage to her vision, but the fact that she went bowling is amazing! I hope that eventually she will be able to go to Curves, that used to be one of the highlights of her day. She will never be able to ride horses, her passion.

It was prayer that started her recovery; when she was on the ground, bleeding from her ears, nose and throat, not breathing and unconscience and after may attempts to revive her, a woman asked my dad if she could pray for Mom. This woman laid hands on Mom and when she was done praying, as she said, "Amen". Mom opened her eyes and took a breath. Then the ambulance came.

I don't think any of us thought she would ever make it to where she is now, but we had faith. And God is faithful.

Secondly, I never thought I'd ever be so excited about bowling....maybe I'll even go throw a huge, awfully heavy ball with holes down a narrow, slippery hardwood alley in an effort to knock down a couple of white wobbly, bottom-heavy things to celebrate. Anyone wanna come?

Thanks.

Uh, and an 80 is good enough to beat me.

Oh my gosh. I went bowling once with my husband and a friend before we got married. It was cool. We went bowling a few months ago as an outing at my job and now I am hooked! I did better than I expected and my team was loving me. :-) Count me in!

Amazing how God shows Himself, isn't it? I couldn't be happier for you and your mother. It's also amazing how dangerous those horses can be. Second time this year I've heard this. Makes me sad. But thank God she is back! What a testimony!

Oh Praise God for that! That must have been one of the hardest things to go through - to see your mom like that.

Hey, I love to bowl. I'll be right there! ;)

Okay, we have Monica, Liz and me going bowling so far....is beer going to be involved? Rumor has it that bowling and beer go hand in hand.

And yes, Liz, it was one of the hardest things to see, my mom was so helpless and it didn't look like she was going to make it. She even had some of her damaged brain tissue removed, then she caught spinal menegitus!

I'm glad you're mom is doing so much better. What a scary and emotional thing to go through.

Wow...isn't God good. Thank you Lord for the woman who stepped up to the plate to pray and for the prayers of countless saints..."God is good all of the time...oh yes, I know He is a friend of mine..."

I refuse to tell how BAD a bowler I am! Give your Mom our love!
