Hi Amy!
It was good to hear from you this morning!  I'm so glad that yiour ear is doing well!   What a blessing!

I'm enjoying the summer here at CIU.  The pace is slower and lets me get things reorganized for the school year!

Dr. Jones is seeking to bring about  a lot of changes including a sports program that will joiin us with other small colleges in sports competition.   I know that the guys especially will love this!

The dorms are being renovated one by one now!   The men's Memorial dorm was renovated lduring the spring semester last year and  now this summer  East will be renovated.  

The girls really wanted the second "new dorm" to be theirs but to get it done in just 3 months it needed to be another guys dorm.  But guess what happened?  Because of other huge changes in the housing situation, that one building, East,  will be a girls dorm this fall and Petty (is that the 2 story women's dorm?)  will be a guys dorm! 

This all happened because the plan for the coming year is for the removal of  both the homes on faculty row and the clusters in order to make room for major land changes on the campus.

Well, that is the short of it!  Change!  Change!  Change!

I hope that your life isn't quite that topsy turvy right now!   Do you and your roommate have a good church?  Tell me what is going on!

love and shalom,
Miss Reichel

Good morning Amy!

Thanks so much for the update. I pray that today is a good day--a day of peace and rest.

I'm sorry that the healling is so much slower this time. Wating! That has to be one of the very hardest things we do! (-:

I'm aboiut to go the the orthopedic clinic and wait for Diane as she gets her ankle x-rayed. Her progress if painfully slow. It has been two months and she is still bed-ridden and unable to care for any of her needs. Her sheech has improved. I'm so glad for that since communicatioibn was very tiring when I couldn' t understand her.

Here is my verse of the week for both of us..."Wait on the Lord; be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!"

Love,

Miss Reichel

Hiya, how are you? Yes, I know, you have no clue who I am but that's half the fun! Mwahaha! Seriously though, this is Taren from New Worlds.

Figured I'd stop and say something since you left the link and all. I've somewhat of an idea what you're dealing with with the ongoing problems and changing doctors and this that and the other. I've been dealing with alot of that myself. Which may seem wierd, considering the problem's not mine. I'm dealing with it because someone I love dearly is with a pretty serious condition she has, and I'm going through all this stuff right along with her, and to some extent, I feel most everything she does, and though it's a fraction of what she, and I'm sure you, with your situation, feel, it's been enough to make me break down and cry, and fight rather strongly with myself to hold faith and not curse our hope.

But, I've held on, she's holding on, and from what I've read you've got more than enough strength to hold on, so hold onto your faith and your spirit, and no matter what happens, know there's a reason, and that in the end, it will work out as best it should!

On another note, thank you so very much for posting the link, I've never heard of this site before but I'm going to be introducing her to it when I go see her next, as her hospital provides internet connections that will work with my laptop.

Heya,

You probably don't remember who I am, but in case you do, it's Salvanas, from Aardwolf.

Just wanted to say thanks for your marvellous updates on how you are doing. While I don't really even know you well, it's just so encouraging to hear how God is always there for you, even when life sometimes seems to be full of adversity.

It certainly is a timely reminder for me. I realise I've been subconsciously complaining about the tedium of studies and daily life, though I have it absolutely easy compared to what you've been through! And it reminds me what I often too easily forget - that in everything God is in control.

Well, keep up the good fight, and God bless!

Hi Amy!

Sounds like a good word from the new doctor. I personally really like it when a clinic rotates doctors. Although there is the disadvantage of getting comfortable with another doctor each time, there is the wonderful plus of getting a second or third source of of knowledge and experience. The years of medical experiences of the life of one doctor are just not long enough to learn all there is to know!

This is Homecoming week and it is so-o-o much fun to see MANY elderly folks all over the campus! One alumnus is 91 and fought in the first World War! What an experience it would be to sit and chat with him!

Did you get any insite from the verses in I Timothy? Well, I'm going to close now. Have a good weekend!

love,

Good Morning Amy!

It's finally Friday! It has been a busy and tiring but good week hre at CIU--lots of meetings before the start of classes next Tuesday. Sounds like you have had a few bum weeks. I'm sorry.

Perhaps we can talk sometime over the weekend. In the meanwhile, knowing you, I know that you have already been wrestling with God over these hearing issues. I would like to know what He is telling you.! He IS a "wonderful counselor."

And now I have to go to one more meeting before I begin my day. This one is a breakfast/meeting with the FED staff. I'm looking forward to meeting the new Lab supervisors. Then I come back to my office to plan MY meeting for my MRD staff. We will be meeting on Monday to kick off the year of work here in the department.

So..that's it for now!

Bye and I love you,

Hi Amy!

I just wrote you and promptly lost the message by accidently hitting something I shouldn't have! I'll try again. Here goes!

I'm enjoying writing through Caringbridge! It's a "first" for me, although a couple years ago another CIU student named Amy used Caringbridge while she was going through cancer surgery and treatments. It IS a great way to keep friends updated!! I will be praying for you this weekend and into next week. I just finished teaching a series of lessons in Character Camp on the life of Joseph. What an example of God's ability to turn a miserable situation into something beautiful and lasting. I pray that this will be your experience as well.

Shalom! I love you, Miss Reichel

Hi, Amy -- I'm Linda Chung's friend who sends out her emails
while she's "unwired." We can understand your concern
about the surgery, but hope, and will pray, that it brings
relief from the infection and restores your hearing. I'll let
Linda know and keep her updated and I'm sure she'll send
her good wishes and prayers, too. This is a great way to
keep your family and friends informed. Donna

Amy, you did a great job on the site. You are hanging in there extremely well. Remember my son had this identical surgery, including the mastoidectomy part, and he came through with flying colors. You will also!

I have been praying for you, and my two best friends are also praying for you daily. They were both with me at the hospital when my son had his surgery. They are amazing people. All I had to do was ask, and they began praying for you immediately. Especially for the anxiety.

My heart and thoughts will be with you Monday.

Hugs, Queenie
