My Dear Brothers,
Just one week ago, my wife Mihoko was diagnosed with Hepatitis A and Acute Liver Failure. It came fast and unforgivingly. It was so bad that she went into a semi-coma state and before I even had time to absorb everything, I was told by doctors to expect the worst.
The past week was an emotional roller coaster ride, but with the outpouring of support and prayers from so many family, friends and brothers, it gave us the strength and courage to focus and move forward.
This may sound odd, but the past week felt a bit like last year’s Inter-school Athletics Competition. At first, it seemed as if all was lost. But the unrelentless support our brothers kept hope alive and the spirit strong. At some point things started to turn around and Victory became reality.
My wife’s turning point was when suddenly and almost inexplicably, her condition began to improve on its own. Our Victory came when the doctors told me that she had awoken and would be moved out of the ICU and into general ward because her condition was not life-threatening anymore and that we could even expect her to make a full recovery.
I still do not completely understand how or why. But I am confident that a big part of this miracle was made possible by your prayers and support.
On behalf of my wife and entire family, I would like to express our deepest gratitude for all of your kindness and generosity. Without them, I am afraid to even think where we would be. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Charles and Mihoko Wu
