This morning a warning light saying "engine power reduced" appeared on my 69000 miles Silverado. Temp and oil gauges appear fine, could this be a stuck thermostat. I could not accelerate over 50MPH

No, that's a lot more technical than that. Your truck is equipped with a "drive by wire" throttle system that uses redundant sensors to read throttle position and if the computer detects a problem in any one of them, it limits the truck to half throttle. You need a shop that is well versed in diagnostics and has an updated professional scan tool that can interface with these controls.
