I am a little afraid that my health will affect my ability to care for my family

I have been undergoing tests for high blood pressure and today the nurse discovered I have an irregular heart beat, as in my heart misses beats. I am awaiting an ECG and blood tests. Atrial Fibrilation is suspected - which could lead to stroke. My mother suffered from overactive thyroid and Atrial Fibrilation for years before she had a stroke at age 63 & I have been caring for her ever since.My youngest brother had a stroke 2 years ago aged 43

I have strong faith & am not afraid for myself as such,I am ready to leave this life when Our Lord takes me,(although I would like to spend more time with my family)… I am concerned that if I have Atrial Fibrilation that I may have a stroke or heart disease. If this happens I am worried what will happen to the family members I currently care for. I pray that my health can be controlled so I remain healthy enough to continue to care for my family & enjoy my grandchildren a little longer.

If you could spare a prayer I would truly appreciate it.

Thankyou and God bless you

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

I have had the same A T and irregular heart beat for the last twenty years, and the Good Lord has kept me from Stroke. That said any genetic disease is a constant worry for you. Lipitor or any of the statins appear to ease the probability of stroke by up to 60% and they are developing good drugs in this area every day as it is so prevalent in our modern society. Our prayers are with you that you may continue to be able to care for your loved ones.

Praying for you TB

Listen to your doctors, dear one. Do all you can to keep yourself balanced and relaxed.
There’s so much available for your physical care.
And of course, you know you will receive many, many prayers here.
And when you are told to go rest, go rest.
