Elena - "Fall" 2012
Tammy and Elena are safely back in Bucharest, now. Praise God!
Please continue to pray for the complete healing and restoration of Elena's arm.
This emergency trip has been an unexpected and costly drain on the Hudson's mission resources.
August 21, 2012 - Tammy: "Horse back riding had an unhappy ending today. Praying for Elena and her broken arm."
August 22nd - Tammy: "I am with Elena in the Paris airport waiting for our flight. Yes, we will go directly to Credit Valley Hospital when we arrive. Our family doctor is there in the medical building. We would appreciate your prayers for healing and for the way to open before us today. We will stay in touch. The region graciously approved medical leave so that I could take care of Elena but the medical plan doesn't cover travel. There may be some help from the region but they haven't said that for sure. We know the Lord will provide and take care of us as He always does!"
August 29th - Tammy: "Good news! Elena had her last visit to the hospital today. The cast is on for about 8 more weeks and she should be back in school on Monday. Now praying that the Lufthansa strike doesn't keep us from arriving in Bucharest as planned. :) "
September 2nd - Tammy: "Elena and I are in the airport in Frankfurt on our way to Bucharest. Thank you so much for your prayers for Elena during this time. She will need to keep the cast on for about another 6 to 8 weeks [ed. - Elena says 5 weeks]. It was a bad break, but we are just so thankful it is healing without surgery. God is good!"
September 3rd - Pastor Donna Wilson: “I was in communication with Tammy several times and know first hand this has been a very difficult time, having an emergency trip back from Europe, while Elena was in such pain. After the initial check-up in Toronto, when the Dr chose not to [perform surgery], Elena continued to be in a lot of pain, so Tammy took her into McMaster in Hamilton where they removed the cast and re-set her arm (last weekend).
