Prayers Requested for Tracy Stuffle

Libbi Perry Stuffle posted the following early this morning on Facebook -

It's been a while since I have asked for prayer for Tracy. Today (Monday), he goes for a CT scan and then to Dr. Ulm his neurosurgeon for a check up. Tracy's been having some spells of repeated question asking for a few weeks. We first thought it was caused by the antidepressant meds he was taking because it all started about two weeks of being on the meds. But, we have taken him off the meds and no change. He's also had a UTI for a bit and he's been on antibiotics for that. So, with all this, Dr. Ulm is gonna check the shunt in Tracy's head to see if it may need adjusting to a lower level. Or to see if it may be stopped up or something else. Tracy is very nervous and has been crying because he doesn't won't to have to go through any more problems as in the past. I am asking that you please pray for God to give him peace and calmness! Also, I am expecting a simple fix to this in the name of Jesus!!! Tracy's CT scan appointment is at 11:45am ct and his appointment with Dr. Ulm is at 12:45pm. I will update you all as soon as we have some answers. Thanks for taking time out to pray for my sweet man!!!

Tracy suffered from a massive stroke in January 2013. He spent months in ICU. He had five cerebral brain hemorrhages and most people don't survive one, but God had His hand on Tracy. He has been back on the road singing with the Perrys since earlier this year. Please keep him in your prayers today.

Update -


CT of shunt and brain looked great!! No blockage, no malfunction, no infection!!! Dr. Ulm said, places that were damaged from bleeds and stroke were healed! The repeating question asking he said could be a good sign that the brain is reconnecting and still healing. He said, Tracy looked great!!! He is sending Tracy to a psychiatrist to have him put Tracy on a anti-depressant that will help him, but yet calm his mind down without knocking him out! He said, people who were inside thinkers before stroke, sometimes come back being outside thinkers and this could be what's happening. Everything is waking up.

He also said the UTI issue is probably coming from the catheter not being changed but once a month (Home Health's policies!) He said a catheter should be changed every 24 to 72 hours! He thinks that's why Tracy hasn't been able to get rid of the on going UTI. So, he's sending Tracy to see a Urologist next Monday to see what they think is our next step in clearing this up and getting Tracy back on track.

Tracy was sooooo relieved!!!! He was also so excited to get to see Dr. Ulm again and show him how he has progressed since last year!

Thank you to everyone who prayed for Tracy and for me also!!! I will never ever be able to ever thank y'all enough for the love, prayers and support you all have given to us!!!!! We are abundantly blessed with THE greatest friends and family ever!!!!!! We love you all!!!!

Dear God,
Once again, You proved Yourself to us!!!!! You don't have to, but You do!!! ALL praise, honor and glory is placed on You!!!! None of this would be possible without YOU!!!! I love YOU!!!!!!! Thanks is NEVER enough!!!!!
