Dorothy has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a rare and serious disease. Dorothy is on oxygen at all times and is unable to walk more than short distances. They are working with specialist doctors as an effective treatment plan is being worked out. Medication options are limited with varied side effects. One medication tried gave her severe headaches and was stopped. Another may be to blame for nausea that she has had almost continuously since last year in July. That medication has now been stopped. No plans are set for them to return to Africa or other overseas appointments for now.
Dwight is using his gifts and skills to minister in the SIM USA Office. He has joined the Information Systems group to assist in the documentation of policies and procedures and other duties while Dorothy's ongoing medical needs are being addressed. They are still on support with SIM and plan to continue to minister through SIM as the Lord leads.
