Update on Tracy Stuffle
Last night, Libbi Perry Stuffle posted a very encouraging update about Tracy Stuffle’s therapy progress in his stroke recovery:
I have one tired sweet husband tonight!! He’s worked so hard the past couple of days!! The therapists all say, they expected him to be worse than what he’s proving to be!! I told them all it’s a God thing!!!! God is working in Tracy’s life!!!
He was able to be off of all oxygen today for about 6 hours and did great. He could have went longer but respiratory therapist didn’t won’t to wear him out. Going to move down from a 6 trach to 4. The speech therapist gave him ice today and he loved it and swallowed great. She is thinking of giving him something like applesauce consistency with a tiny bit of food coloring to see how he does swallowing that. If he does good, they will send him for a swallowing over all test to see if he’s ready to maybe start with some soft soft food. We will see how he does.
You can tell by looking in Tracy’s eyes that he’s fighting hard to get thru this chapter in his life. He knows what it’s gonna take and he’s trying to do his part!! I have been soooo proud of him. It’s amazing at how in just two days how well he’s done. I’t s all God and His strength working in Tracy!!!! He did very well with balancing himself today on the mat. The therapist did very little to assist him for the most part. He is finding his center point and trying to stay centered, which is great!
Thank you all for every single prayer y’all have prayed for Tracy!!! It’s working and has been working!!! I am forever grateful for every little or big thing that has been done for us. Y’all have sooo willingly given so much to us and I could never thank you for it all!!! You all have proven the verse about “bearing one another’s burden!” My prayer is for God to richly bless each one of you more than you can contain!!!!! I love you all!!!!
