Update

I am now off oral cortizone. However, I am now having to take breathing treatments. I have coughed so much that my back is spasming, and I feel like I have a pulled muscle in my shoulder. Ibuprofen takes the edge off the headache. I spent most of the day with no voice, and the couch may have a permanent indention that fits my body.

I know there are others who are far sicker, and I have been far sicker myself. However, prayers are welcome.

Thank you for listening to me whine.

When my hands aren't shaking from the breathing treatment, I'll tell you about diving and swimming classes, the great teachers my children have, and how good the tomatoes taste from our garden. For now, though, know I'm sick, but it is a blip on the radar compared to the goodness of God.

And while you are praying, remember the families in the Midwest. So much loss. So much need for prayer and help.

Y'all are awesome.

Imagine being a parent barely able to pay bills and someone comes to your home and promises to educate your daughter and find her a job. You agree, hoping to give her a better life. Then she disappears, and you find out she is not being educated. Instead, she is a prostitute, a victim of human-trafficking, beaten and abused daily. Sounds like a nightmare, doesn't it? For 100,000 girls in India, this is reality. To find out how you can help, please visit Red Light Rescue.
