Sodlyne and Mirlene

So I always know when Lori comes to me and says “Licia -um there is a little problem in the first consultation room you should go check it out”  I know that it is something I will never see again medical wise.  This is Sodlyne.  She was in the RC in 2008.  She began to have some swelling in her stomach in December.  She was given medication and we told the family to return.  Jan came–eathquake happened–lives changes.  Her dad had to go try to find work.  Her left the kids with the mother.  They came and got him this past week.  He had been sending money up to them to live on and continued to work.  He was shocked at what had happened to his daughter.  He carried he (not sure how) for about 6 hours one way to arrive at the clinic.  She says she is not in pain.  She is having some breathing problems due to all the pressure.  The dad  will return this following week so we can make some decisions on what we are going to do with her long-term.  We are giving medications and watching her this weekend.  Will you pray for her?

This in Sodlyne in 2008.  She was burned on her face.

She healed up within a few months and returned home to her family.


Mirlene died early Thursday morning…peacefully in her sleep.

    I cried when I read about Mirlene. Poor sweet baby girl. God needed her in heaven. I am so touched by those you write about, including your own family. Many prayers go out for you and those you touch.
