One more day of work and then I fly. It has been a long and difficult trip from the beginning. I so wish to stay and continue my support of the wounded troops here at LRMC, but we must continue our support stateside so those that arrive here will be comfortable and warm.
The update on Holly stands as she has a tear in a lower disk and will require surgery. She has been diagnosed with Lyme disease. There is no cure and she will be on medication to control the side effects. She will be traveling to GA for her back surgery.
I have seen our blankets, quilts, and pillows come off the bus in the morning covering patients that arrive from the Middle East. It is a wonderful feeling to know that, as such a small group, we are having such a wonderful impact in support of our wounded warriors.
I have several new requests and I will post them as soon as I get back to the states.
Please bear with me, as I will be starting my own physical therapy for my broken ankle. I still have some bruising and swelling and they are hoping that once I get into physical therapy, the swelling will release some of the pressure I am having on the nerves.
Thank you to all those that supported this trip, monetarily, and with your thoughts and prayers!
