Most of you know by now that Maeo was admitted to the hospital on September 27, 2012. The doctor said that blood tests showed she had some kind of infection in her blood. That took a day or two to find out. They started treatment on September 29. By Sunday evening, Maeo was having a severe reaction to the drugs. I found out later, that I guess this is not unusual. Instead of taking here off the medication and using something else, he continued to use the medication through her IV. He then suggested a psychiatric evaluation for Maeo. Monday and Monday night she continued to have extreme adverse reaction. Tuesday morning when the doctor said he wanted her to stay another night; she flatly refused and said she was going home. I was praying that at least the fever was gone. I also found out that the doctor had sent some of the same medicine that caused all the problems, home with her to continue taking the stuff. As soon as I found out I took the medicine away from her. She ran a low grade temp Tuesday, Wednesday and part of Thursday. Friday to Sunday there has been no fever. She continues to suffer from some of the psychiatric problems, but they are slowly disappearing. She is depressed, weak and for the most part, doesn’t want to get up and do her exercises, so at this point, I have no idea how long it is going to take. On Tuesday we go to Sakon Nakhon for regular medicines pickup, so if she is able to go, we will have the doctor there examine her and see what her reactions and recommendations are.
For me it has been a busy time in that most of my time goes to taking care of Maeo, so please pray for strength for me as the days go by.
This week, Oct 8-12, we have 4 girls at a seminar in Bangkok – teen leadership and techniques for older to teach younger children. Same time period we have 6 girls moving in for a 5 day, 24 hour a day English Camp. Pray for this group. My goal is to prove to them that it can be done, if they want to, and learning English is not as hard as they make it out to be. Pray for me as we go through it. I will be teaching 6-8 hours a day.
Thank you and praise God for your continued prayers and support. Our girls have all completed their semester exams; now we wait for the results.
God Bless and keep.
Lots of love,
John and Maeo
