This is Mark’s mom. I arrived in Taiwan on July 14th and will return to Minnesota on September 10th. It’s a joy to be here with Mark, Xiao Hui, and the children. I have the honor of being a full-time grandma this summer and being able to show Mark and his family love everyday.
September 27th will be the 5 year anniversary of Mark’s tragic accident. He is still bedridden, unable to walk or talk and riddled with one infection after the other. His right brain is uninjured so he does understand everything and is able to relay his moods and reactions with his eyes. Saturday is his 42nd birthday so I’m planning a pizza party for him, and, of course, his mom needs to bake him a cake. He is at home in the living room so is very much a part of daily life. His children are there with hugs and kisses to he is blessed in that way.
Thank you for your concern and expression of friendship. I will read your message to him on his birthday. One of the greatest sources of sadness is that his “friends” in Taiwan have disappeared and gone on with their lives. It must be very sad when he thinks of that, but some wonderful Christian friends are
very faithful, weekly praying for him at the house and helping the family in numerous, heartwarming ways. It’s a heavy burden for Xiao Hui but whenever someone questions her choice she says, “He’s my husband. He’s my family”. Devotion like hers is rare.
Again, thank you, Aaron. Your note brought happiness.
