Maria's Mom

Many of you are aware that Maria returned to the States just one week after we got back to Guatemala. Her mom had a serious adverse reaction to a new medication. She had started the medicine while we were there but it took awhile for the side effects to show up. The new medicine interacted adversely with her Coumadin, causing her blood to become very thin. This led to severe bruising, fatigue, and shortness of breath. She was admitted to a hospital and
Maria went straight there when she arrived in Birmingham. Mom is home now and doing very well. She needs to regain her strength and still address an underlying heart condition. Maria will stay with her and I will fly to the states in February as we had originally planned to do. We have several churches to visit and missions conferences to attend. Pray that Mom's health will remain strong and for our travels. We look forward to visiting with many of you.
