Vertigo You Gotta Go!

May 2, 1997 was a night that changed my life and the lives of my family… I was in an accident which resulted in a fractured skull, a brain injury and VERTIGO…

If you’ve never had vertigo feel blessed! For those that have you know it is a nasty thing to deal with… It drastically effects your balance…

Over the years I learned how to move and not move my head to invoke vertigo…

When my first grandchild was announced, I spent time in physio to help regain my balance and be able to chase after the grandkids – determined to not just be the rocking chair and stories grandma… It took a lot of work but I re-taught my brain how to balance better…

Fact: Balance is based on 3 things… Ears, eyes and the top of your spine…

My ears caused vertigo so they didn’t help… My neck has arthritis and didn’t really help (so I was told at physio)… That left my eyes… (And my feet also could detect “flat” surfaces to help, thanks to physio)…

Fast forward to 2 weeks ago… And I was at a church bonfire get together… It was all great UNTIL sun was down… We were out in the country… No street lights, no real light pollution, except the bonfire… And it was in a field… A bumpy field…

I was literally fighting really hard not to have a nasty fall… Wobbling like a Webble when a lady, who I had only briefly met, noticed me desperately stumbling… She offered to pray for me…

Now, when I had my accident I perforated my left eardrum… So my hearing on my left was less than ideal…

As she prayed my left ear started hearing TOTALLY different than my right ear… When we speak or listen our ears detect the vibrations… It was as if she was praying inside my left ear! About 100 times louder…

When she finished I could hear better with my left ear than my right ear! And the vertigo is completely gone!! I can move my head in any direction and no vertigo spell is triggered!!!!!!!!!

After 22 years, I could stand and walk on a bumpy field as if nothing was ever wrong!

The next time I see my doctor I plan to have him look into my ear and confirm what I already know… It’s perfect!

So does God still perform miracles? Of course… God is the same today, yesterday and forever
