Posted on 07/25/2014 12:40:21 PM PDT by ZinGirl
Hi - I come to you humbly asking for your thoughts and prayers for our daughter. She just went abroad as she starts her Junior year from Gettysburg College and is in Melbourne, Australia. She has been there just over 2 weeks.
Things were going great until she called this morning to say she was in the ER because she hasn't felt well, has had a headache for 2 days, and feels like she has been hit by a truck.
Long story short, she is being treated for a bacterial infection and the hospital is bringing in infectious disease doctors. Her temp was 104. She is on antibiotics and feeling better...but we are so worried.
We live in Baltimore and I feel helpless. She is a great student and has made friends, two of which have stayed with her almost the whole time. The logistics are being handled thru an organization called Arcadia, and they have been tremendous, both in Australia and the US office.
We have a wonderful support system (family and friends) praying for her and have felt their prayers as my husband and I feel so helpless....but I would truly covet and be evergrateful if you feel led to pray for us and our daughter, Christina.
I apologize ahead of time if I can't respond personally....please know I will try. God bless you.
May I ask for prayer?
damn....our love and prayers...
It must be awful to be so far away from your daughter at this time. Prayers for her and your family.
Prayers for your daughter and peace for your family.
thank you so much. *sigh* I was just re-reading her blog
thank you, Mrs. Z. (ha - that’s what people call me sometimes!)
You and your daughter are in my prayers tonight. Be well.
so sorry, prayers going up
Prayers said from here, ZinGirl, for your daughter. I know will be difficult or impossible but try to rest and not worry. I have a Son, Daughter-in-Law, two Grandchildren in Australia and my Daughter-in-Law is a nurse in Australia. The care in Australia is excellent.
Prayers lifted up for your daughter Christina. I cannot imagine being so far from my daughter and feeling so helpless. It sounds as though she is in good hands with her doctors, though.
Prayers for a fast and complete recovery.
Asking God to bless your daughter with healing and you with comfort. In Jesus precious name. Amen.
thank you! both for prayers and the comment about their care...so far, we are very happy and seem to take it very seriously. A sidenote is she also has a bit of a disorder which can mean managing an illness or injury can be tricky....but they seem to be all over it!
Prayers for your daughter.
and thanks for your prayers, Red!
thank goodeness it is Australia and not a third world crap hole
