On Sunday, I took Sheyla up to the Salt Lake area
for the Homecoming of her mission President and his wife.
Over the several years they served,
they had about 400 missionaries serve with them
in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania mission
(and that's missionaries from all over the world).
These were the ones that could make it to Utah on Sunday.
Sheyla is the one on the far left, front row
(not a too terribly bad photo for taking it with her phone).
Monday night I went to pick her up from school
and her instructor came out and got me
saying she was having a hard time the last 20 minutes.
She was on the couch having a partial seizure.
So I took her to the ER.
They did some blood test,
a CT scan
and found out the results from her EEG
from a week and a half ago.
The doctor said,
"She had epilepsy when she was young
and now it is back."
They started her on medication.
We still have to drive her everywhere until she is stable.
Sheyla is being brave in the midst of a scary trial.
Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day
that says I'll try again tomorrow.
