Kudjip Nazarene Hospital, Papua New Guinea: We are praising God for the successful outcome of surgery for Dr. Erin Meier.
Dr. Erin is a missionary doctor at Kudjip Nazarene Hospital. About two months ago, she started feeling some pain in her right shoulder while playing basketball. She didn’t worry too much about it, since her shoulders were dislocated five times in the past. She took normal precautions of rest, medicine and exercise to strengthen her shoulder, but after a month it was still hurting. She started wearing a sling to relieve the pain, initially during the night. However, as the days progressed the pain worsened, she had to start wearing the sling full time even while she was working.
As Dr. Erin left PNG last week for home assignment in the US, she decided to have her shoulder checked. She was scheduled for surgery July 24. As of yesterday, we received this update from Dr. Erin:
“My shoulder surgery went well. I am immobilized, in a sling, for the next few weeks, as my shoulder heals following surgery. I am in little to no pain now. I will see the doctor on August 5 and will find out when I can start my physical therapy, which will get me on the road to returning to Kudjip soon. Thanks for your continued prayers.”
Let us continue to pray for Dr. Erin’s immediate recovery. May God heal her so that she will be able to carry on her mission to heal others in His name.
