Anna says "Thanks"! (First published in the church newsletter)

Anna wrote a thank you note for the church newsletter, following her surgery. Since many "internet" and Facebook friends were also praying, and a few sent cards, Anna said I could share her "thanks" on the blog, as well.

Dear Church Family,
It has been over a month since my appendectomy. On Sunday, February 27th, I woke up with pain in my side. My mom took me to the hospital--I won't give you the details--and they took my appendix out.

You have been very supportive of my recovery. With a month gone by, I'm back to my old self, being outside running or rollerblading and being an organized student in school.

I would like to thank the church family for their love and support. I received many cards, some flowers, and visits from Pastor Nancy and Pastor Charlie.

I also thank you for your support in the MASH (Mechanicsburg Area Senior High) musical which was only three days after my trip to the hospital.

Finally, I would like to thank God for all He has given me in this life. I am so blessed to have a church family who love and support me as I grow in life, physically and spiritually.

God is watching out for all of us, and we are blessed.

Love, Anna Zeigler

My name is Maureen and I have a daughter, Rebekah, who is 14 years old and has autoimmune uveitis. She sees a specialist in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and has been traveling back and forth from our home in Northeast PA to Massachusetts every 6 - 8 weeks for the past 4 years. I was hoping to be able to "speak" with Anna's mom regarding uveitis, faith, medications, life in general.
Thanks for sharing, Anna.
