Prayer Request for Conor Macnessa
Self

Posted on 12/24/2012 2:34:19 PM PST by ConorMacNessa

Dear Friends,

At this juncture, I must ask for your prayers on my behalf. Last Friday afternoon, while driving home from work I blacked out on I-95 and rear-ended the vehicle in front of me.

I was taken by ambulance to Laurel Regional Hospital and was admitted. During my three-day stay I had a head CT, a cervical MRI, an EEG, and a chest CT.

They finally released me at about three o’clock this afternoon.

In light of the circumstances of this accident, I am coming to the conclusion that I should not drive anymore. No one was injured in this accident – I couldn’t live with myself if I caused serious injury or death to another person.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

It takes a stand-up person to admit they shouldn’t drive anymore.
I respect that and I respect you.

I hope it was just a freak occurence and everything works out okay for you.

So sorry to hear this. Prayers up, of course! Have you blacked out like this before?

Prayers up from this house. Take care of yourself. Hopefully, they’ll find the cause and be able to take care of it for you. Good luck.

I’ve tried to do a prayer ping for you, but it appears the system can’t handle that. I’ll try again later.

Prayers for you as you walk through this experience.

Your decision to not drive anymore should be based on the medical evaluation of your condition - in particular, what was the cause of your blackout, how are you going to be treated for it, and what are the chances that it may recur when you are driving?

Get well, my friend. Hopefully the black-out you experienced isn’t a chronic condition.

I’ve had two black-outs in my life. Thank goodness I wasn’t doing anything more dangerous than standing in a room at the time. The last one I had was over thirty years ago, and I’ve driven ever since.

The same thing happened to a friend of mine who lives in Potomac Md. Something in the water there in Md.??? Anyway he didn’t hit anyone, but instead ran off the side of the road. His accident also did not involve any injuries. If I remember he had to prove that it was not due to some condition where it could reoccur, before he could get his license back. That was several years ago now and he hasn’t had a problem since. You need to see how things go and if you do not have another occrrence I think you will be good to drive again. It is not easy giving up that independence of mobility, but we must each make our own calls based upon whatever knowledge we can garner. Good luck and I hope like my friend it was just a onetime occurence caused by an illness that is not gravely serious, like maybe a flu bug. My prayers are with you.

I greatly respect the integrity and wisdom you’re showing in acknowledging the possibility that it’s time to give up the keys.I was involved in getting my Dad to give up *his* keys as he approached 80.It wasn’t a fun time for any of us.I’d encourage you to listen carefully to any advice your physician(s) might have for you.

I see my primary care physician next week - I'm sure he'll have something to contribute on the question.

You got ‘em. I rear-ended someone a little over a year ago, and I’m way younger than I think you are. Hope you can get to the bottom of your blackout.

Just about same time I rear ended a guy on the 605 but I’m marking it up to the fact that a three year old Dodge with ABS stops a whole lot shorter than a twenty three year old Thunderbird. Not giving up my license but I am investing in power disks for the ‘57 and the ‘60.

I am very, very thankful that no lives were lost in that accident.

I salute you on making a hard and sad decision which appears to be a correct decision.

I will pray for you as you adjust to these changing circumstances in your life. And also for those around you as your change makes them change, however so slight, as well.

Ask your physician to do a long-term heart rhythm study. My mother-in-law had this happening. Dr did a week-long EKG type study-recording monitor on her. Turned out she had a heart arrhythmia. Heart would just stop. Pacemaker and she was fine, but took that to find the problem.

Good luck.

Conor, you are one of the good guys.

God has a further plan for you, which is why you are are here to start this thread and ask for prayer.

This will be a very special Christmas for you and yours, one full of thanksgiving.

Ask Him what comes next for you, and He will give you peace on the answer.

I am praying that the cause of the blackout can be determined. If it is because of an under lying medical issue , and not a one time thing, you will have your answer as to driving, in short order.

Better you make that decision than have it made for you.

When my dad was 81, it was time to take the keys. I told him he had driven 67 and had never had an accident that hurt anyone, but if he kept driving he would, and that would be a terrible way to end his driving career.

We gave his car to my nephew for free with the proviso that he drive my parents when they needed transportation.

This worked out to everyone’s advantage. Perhaps a similar arrangement might work for you.

I will pray for you -- it's terribly bleak to think of not being able to drive anymore, because of unknown physical vulnerabilities.

May the Saints and Angels guard you in every dimension: body, mind, spirit.

Post again from time to time to update us on how you're doing. It's always possible that this is a temporary, or manageable thing.

Bless you, Conor.

Then perhaps this blackout was a blessing in disguise. Now you know something isn't right, and G-d willing, it will be found and fixed before something more serious happens. G-d bless you and hold you in the palm of His hand.

In light of the circumstances of this accident, I am coming to the conclusion that I should not drive anymore.

The same thing happened to me... I too was considering hanging up my car keys, but I finally decided to give up drinking at work instead... Nary a problem since. :P

Now really: Prayers for you, and hopes that your problem is definitively found and resolved with miraculous speed.

Strange—this just happened to a lady I know. She had all the tests in the world and they haven’t found a reason. She too is in Maryland.

It’s like an epidemic. I keep hearing about these incidents.

Of course you will have my prayers, but I hope you will not just take the depressing decision not to drive without knowing a reason.
