Update on Brad - June 18,2009 p.m.

Brad and Michelle and little Tyler have arrived in Lima. The District Superintendent of the Nazarene Church met them at the airport and immediately took them to a clinic - where they speak English! The doctor looked over all the MRI and EEG results and told them that the hospital they had gone to must have very old equipment as the test results were nearly unreadable. And of the two prescriptions they gave Brad, one was useless and the other one could be dangerous. He scheduled them to come back in the morning and they will run a whole new battery of tests, including one that will measure all the blood vessel's of the brain to rule out any blood clotting that could be taking place.

Tonight they are staying at the home of the District Superintendent and they said they are being treated like royalty. They have a lovely room to stay in with a private bath and there was even a basket of fresh fruit waiting for them.

I am so thankful that God is providing people to love and care for our kids. I am so thankful they have found a hospital and doctor that seems to be very capable of meeting Brad's physical needs. I am so glad that the language barrier won't be such a problem. I am so happy that we will all be able to sleep a little better tonight knowing these things.

Some very good news, indeed, Robin. Hope an accurate diagnosis will be the result.

Robin,
I've been thinking about you (translate praying) while you're at JumpStart. What a blessing to know we have family all over the world. I got teary-eyed reading about how well God takes care of His own! God is sooooo good!

Been following along and praying as God brings them (all of you) to mind. Continuing to pray even now...

Migraines can cause some strange side effects - I know because I get them. But I certainly have never heard of waking up unable to communicate. So I'm really glad he's getting good care now. And I'm still praying for them. Praying for you too because I know how worried you must be.
