For a little back story about Mindy (if you don’t already know) you can go here: Heavy
Before Sunday, the last time I saw Mindy, she was in intensive care and almost completely paralyzed on one side. She didn’t say a word, and she hardly smiled. It was a bad day. Since then, she has had two surgeries, been moved to a rehab facility, and gotten markedly better. I mean really… so so much better.
It was good for me to get to see her again. She was smiling and talking. She asked questions, laughed at jokes, and moved her right side some. It was so encouraging. Also, she’s totally rocking the shaved head.
I left the rehab facility so thankful for Mindy, Kevin, their parents, and my friends who have been helping them. The past few months haven’t been kind to them, but they’ve been so strong and encouraging. I’m proud to call them friends.
And thanks to all of you who have been praying or giving. For more updates and pictures and information and all that – go here: Caring Bridge – Mindy Harkins
