An Update from the India Girl

Hello friends,

Well, I haven’t been updating as much as I planned. I manage to do a bit with Twitter, (Since my concussion, I’ve found I’m better at communicating in less than 140 characters;) but I’ve failed to be faithful with writing on this blog. Here’s what I’ve been up to:

My youngest brother has several heart conditions that need to be resolved. In a little over a week, he’ll be going into a series of heart surgeries. The pre-op tests, surgeries, and recovery could take anywhere from two weeks to a month. Please pray for him and for my family as we walk through this valley.

We sold our house! Hurrah! So we’re also moving. Packing, packing, packing. Fun, fun, fun.

I relapsed recently. Seems I got rid of the parasites but not their eggs. They hatched. Gross. I’m also experiencing all the joys of traumatic brain injury. (Remember that lovely concussion I got from fainting on the kitchen floor?) Makes forming sentences confussing… among other things.

I’m working on my book, as well as I can with all of this business and brain injury. Mostly, I’m collecting my notes from my notebooks, blog posts, emails etc, putting them in chronological order and deciding what is relevant to put in the book and what isn’t. I’ll give you some insider info, though: There are some VERY exciting things that happened, and they’re going in the book for sure. 🙂

As crazy as all of this is, God is so good and so faithful. He has given be dear friends who have been such a support, and He has given me your prayers. I cannot express how valuable your prayers, encouragement, and even your page views on my blog have been to me. You are a gift. Thank you.

  1. Praying for you… sounds like a lot to go through right now, but it is such an encouragement that you are praising the Lord through this! He is faithful. I can relate to the parasites… I had a bout while I was in India and I got quite sick for a while and was so fatigued. Thankfully they have strong deworming meds there, and as far as I know they’re still gone. 🙂 I truly hope you will be healing quickly, and I’m excited to hear some of those VERY exciting things!

  2. You are an amazing young woman. You have done much and been through much already. Your fatigue from the illnesses makes the TBI heal even slower. Be patient with yourself. These next couple of months may be physically (moving) and emotionally (surgery) draining. Do rest a lot and don’t expect a lot to be done. What gets done will be wonderful. I am excited to see more writings from you as you are able.

What do you think about my post? Anything to add? Any related prayer requests? I really want to hear from you. So, please do comment, if you'd like. :)
