I am beginning to feel much better now – although I do have my bad days here and there. Now if I can only get my days and nights back in the right order. I’ve created the habit of staying up until 3 and 4 each morning – afraid to sleep so I don’t wake up in pain. So now I’m wide awake late at night and dead asleep at noon! But overall – I’m doing well.
I have received a few emails asking whether or not I was able to get aid for my ER bills. We got a letter from St. Joseph Hospital who told us they waived their fees! They said that doesn’t include the Radiologist, ER Doctors, or any other specialists. We thought that was still really great! I mean how much could the ER doctor be anyways? Right? How about 748.00 for the ER doctor who told me I would need brain surgery? WHAT? That’s what I said! We called their collecting agency and asked if there was anything they could do. They told us to send the letter where the hospital waived their fees and to write a letter. So we did both and mailed it out yesterday. We haven’t received our other bills yet – I can only imagine what the radiologist will charge if the ER doctor is that expensive! That’s crazy!
The power situation isn’t any better yet in Haiti. We have a small generator we’re using to pump water. But outside of that there is still no power for anything else. The small generator doesn’t pump enough water for us to share with the town – so that’s still very sad. We’re still looking for parts for the large generator we normally use. We talked to Courtney in Haiti today and found out one of our little baby orphanage babies died today. Please be in prayer as the staff there grieves for little Jude.
This is Courtney (intern) with him.
Janeil and Heather are now back in the states! For the few hours Janeil was here – I bet his phone rang 15 times! It’s amazing – he gets calls from 5am to 11pm. I told him he needs to make a Top 10 list like I did!! They drove from Miami and arrived here last night – only to get in the truck this morning and head to Kansas City! So pray for them and their kids as they are constantly on the road. No time for them to rest and they looked so worn out last night. When I think my life is crazy – I look at what all they have to do – wow – their plates are fuller than ours!
Well – I’m going to drug up so I can sleep when it’s dark out instead of the day time! I’m hoping to get myself back on a normal schedule! Thanks for your prayers, comments, and emails! We truly feel loved.
