Emergency Trip Home

Danny and Kathy returned home on Tuesday, September 29th to attend to Danny's mom Rose's health. After two weeks in the hospital with pneumonia and not eating and the return of her four boys, Rose woke up and announced, "I feel too good to die." Rose began eating the next day and being very cute. With her boys, Ed, Jim, Pat, and Danny by her side, Rose became strong and healthy. She returned to her nursing home on Monday, October 5th where she continues to win at Bingo, watch TV, and be one of the favorite residents. Danny and Kathy will return to work in Liberia on Sunday, October 18th. It was good and right for us to come home to be with family. It is good to know that the world is small and that we can be home in a day. Thanks for your prayers! It is truly why Rose is still with us!
