Week #77 Not burnt out, just burnt

Morgan's doctor and one of the many Elders who visited. The hospital was conveniently located across the street from the mission office so she had a constant string of visitors. A different group of Elders brought her lunch and dinner everyday. After 5 days the nurses wanted to know how she knew so many well dressed young men.

The girls (sister missionaries) took shifts staying with her. I love that she has a smile on her face in both of these pictures. She is such a Pollyannna, some how she always finds a way to be happy even in the toughest circumstances.

Morgan has not been able to post anything for the last two weeks because she has been in the hospital. She had an accident in her flat. She split a giant pot of scalding hot water and then slipped into the spill. She ended up with severe second degree burns all over her legs that became infected. After spending 8 days in the hospital, a  minor surgery and a lot of pain she is now on the mend.  I really wanted her to come home after the accident so we could have her treated in the states but she refused. She did not want to end her mission one day early and was determined to stick it out to the finish. She was released from the hospital this week and is hoping to finish out these last few days in the mission strong (maybe a little slow, but strong).  Morgan will be back in the U.S. on July 22. She is looking forward to reconnecting with so many of you! She will be speaking in our church on July 26 at the LDS building on Duthie HIll in Sammamish. The service is from 1:00-2:00 and lunch at our house afterwards is at 2:30, please join us for both or either one.
