Margie's home!

OUR friend and colleague Margie Quimpo-Espino, who had suffered a stroke almost three months ago while on a press tour in New Delhi, has just arrived with her husband, Chet. She is now at the Asian Hospital in Alabang where she will undergo more therapy and medical care under our really great Pinoy doctors.

I couldn't help but shed tears as I saw the latest photos sent out by Chet of their homecoming, albeit it was at the hospital. The hugs his children gave him and the look on the faces of Margie's family as they welcomed her back were just all too precious. Although I wanted to share w/ you those photos, forgive me for not doing so, out of respect for the family.

There are many who have written me who don't know Margie personally but said they have prayed just the same, like all of her friends, for her recovery and safe return home. To them we say, thank you. From your lips to God's ears.

Pls. keep praying and saying those novenas for Margie and her family, that they may face her long road to recovery and rehabilitation with strength and grace. No request is too large or small for the Lord. He hears us and will answer us.
"And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive." (Matthew 21:22)

Thanks a lot Stella, I didn't know how to get news from Margie since she's left the hospital on Thursday morning. I work there, in Pediatrics. Please send me a link to Chet's email group, or ask him to check if he's received my e-mail, since I'm not sure about his address

Thanks a million,

New Delhi

Dear Veronique,

You're most welcome. I'll make sure Chet gets your message. I think the email group has already been deactivated since Margie arrived.



P.S. Yes, you have the correct email address of Chet. I'm sure he is just busy trying to catch up w/ family and business matters.
