Thirty-nine-year-old Jennifer Saake (founder, Hannah's Prayer Ministries), experienced 6 strokes via vertebral dissection at a chiropractic office, including brain stem and cerebellum bleeds, in Oct. 2011. Jenni remained hospitalized for nearly 2 months and was not expected to live (near death experience) nor recover, but if she even survived, she was slated to live out her days in a nursing home or, best case, to maybe come home but wheelchair-bound and needing 24-hour care. At 5 years, 7 months God showed how He was writing her story from the beginning.

Jenni is currently writing more books and stays active on both Facebook and Pinterest. Here is her resume.

Since Jenni's chiropractor carried no insurance and moved out of the country soon after the accident (thus avoiding any legal or financial consequences), if you would like to help contribute to the Saake (pronounced like the two small words, say and key) family's massive financial needs (medical expenses alone are estimated to cost between $1- and $1.5- Million in Jenni's lifetime), please visit Jennifer Saake's Stroke Survivor GoFundMe Page. (This support information has been added in direct response to several reader requests.) The Saakes sincerely thank you for your prayers and if God prompts and equips you to send any monetary assistance as well, this is a significant added blessing.

No Clot


Ultrasound tech does not think there is a clot in my leg at all, deep vein, superficial or otherwise (see yesterday's post for background). She does not know what the fluid-filled knot in my leg is (or why it is growing) but it does not look like a clot. Praise God!

Fortunately, I did not know, going into the ultrasound, that if they had found a clot today, I probably would have been readmitted to the hospital this morning. It was all over with before I understood that, so there wasn't time for me to freak out over the possibility.

We will get official word once the doctor reads the report, but I don't expect any surprises since the tech was kind enough to tell me basically everything the report will tell the doctor.

We have an appointment for our daughter's foot for Friday morning.
