Vanity - Prayers for my daughter abroad
vanity | 25 July 2014 | ZinGirl

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.

It must be awful to be so far away from your daughter at this time. Prayers for her and your family.

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.

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!

I promise they (the Medical Staff) will be. I love my family there and the care I promise is excellent. They (the Medical Staff) will go far beyond the call.

I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. Prayers for your daughter’s prompt and full recovery, and for strength and clarity for those who love her.

If you do not have a passport, you might ask your congressman whether there is an expedited way to get one, just in case you feel a need to travel.

Blessings.

If it is possible to Face Time with your daughter and her doctors daily so that you can ask questions and see how she is doing it may alleviate your feeling of helplessness.

I enjoyed reading her blog; she’s a good writer! She sounds like a very button down, smart, and fun loving girl. Prayers have been sent and I’m sure she’ll be just fine!

eh....I have an old, old flip phone. :P My other daughter is the "right" kind of iPhone, but the hospital doesn't have wifi. :(

So far, we're doing OK. The prayers and thoughts from people have really helped...and the assurance that she is getting great care.

thanks! She’s a pip. She loves Dave Barry, Jerry Seinfeld, and David Thorne, along with Jim Gaffigan and, of course, RON SWANSON (she actually saw him last fall - he was great!). So THAT’S her inspiration. :)

thank you, sv - I was just sitting thinking how much better I feel since I started this thread. (I had to doublecheck with husband if it would be a good idea...he was basically, “duh - of course”. I read the prayer threads all the time and it took me all day to think, WAIT...THIS IS WHAT IT’S FOR!) *smack on forehead*
