Nathan Bingham of Ligonier Ministries sent this update on Dr. Sproul’s health.
Dr. Sproul is home from the hospital. As many of you know, he suffered a stroke, which required an extended hospital stay. We give thanks to God that there has been no paralysis and he remains his same jovial self. But there are some remaining effects of the stroke that affect his speech and strength. Further, he’s been diagnosed with a diabetic condition that will be addressed through diet and regular medical attention. He is fatigued and in coming days will be concentrating on regaining his strength as well as his speech therapy. Again, Dr. Sproul expresses his thanks for all of the prayers that have been lifted up on his behalf to our merciful, sovereign, and faithful heavenly Father.
Last Saturday, April 18, Dr. Sproul checked himself into the hospital. The doctors suspect he had a mild stroke. He remains in the hospital for further testing and observation. The Sproul family requests your prayers.Regrettably, this means we will be postponing this week’s Google Hangout. God willing, we will reschedule this special event for later in 2015 when Drs. MacArthur and Sproul have joint availability.
On Tuesday, April 21, 2015 Ligonier Ministries issued the following update on R.C. Sproul, Sr., who recently suffered a stroke: Thank you for your continued prayers for Dr. Sproul. The doctors did confirm a stroke occurred but we are thankful to God that there is no paralysis. In fact, he is very alert, feeling well, and resting comfortably. And the hospital staff is enjoying his sense of humor.
