Our latest follow up on Aung Moo, after three weeks in the hospital: he’s home!
We got the call at a pretty unfortunate time, right as we were about twelve hours from Mae Sot and on our way into the jungle a few hours later. Thankfully, we have wonderful friends, one of which who went up to the hospital with a translator and two of our neighbors to collect him, and helped pay for some of the bill.
And wow, was that a bill. Thankfully, we weren’t responsible for all of it, as the total came to 85,760 baht, or $2,724! The doctors and nurses didn’t see us as responsible, and were really just thankful someone came to pick him up. We paid a very small portion, more as a peace offering than anything else.
Aung Moo is still on some medicine, but isn’t capable of caring for himself yet. He can’t walk currently. Some of the neighbors were ready to receive him and are caring for him, and we are praying for them to have patience. We are also praying for continued healing, and just for God’s will to be done overall. So please do keep praying for him, but also rejoicing that he is home, a miracle in and of itself!
