Home Again, Home Again, Jiggedy Jig!

India is home. And we praise God that she did not have to have surgery. She is still in a lot of pain and not moving very fast, but she is home. She told me this morning that she misses the "Magic Button" that she could push at the hospital for the morphine drip. But she is on two kinds of pain meds and then will start a hormone treatment to hopefully get her girly parts working properly and not blowing up whenever they feel like it. Probably TMI, huh?

She is thrilled because she just found out that her best friend from our old church in Lake Forest, IL, Laura, will be visiting with her parents the last weekend in March. Our families have not seen each other in 8 years but the girls still stayed close. So India needs to recover. Then she is to leave for Ireland on her choir tour on April 1st. So the next 10 days will be a whirlwind of getting ready, having visitors, and hopefully getting well. Thankfully, the doctors cleared her for the trip and the choir director hired a nurse to go on the trip as well. It is a big step of faith for this mama to let her baby go halfway around the world, especially when she has been so ill.

Please continue to pray for India's healing. And please pray for her health as she gets ready to leave on her Ireland trip. She is so excited to go.
