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
