This is Carmen with her son, Starling, and her daughter, Milena in their house up in the Mangoes. On Halloween night, Carmen's oldest son committed suicide in his house, which is right behind this one. The past few months have been an emotional roller coaster for this family, to say the least. Three weeks ago, Carmen, who has diabetes, got an infection in her foot. Over the course of a few days it became so infected that when she went to the hospital, the doctors almost had to amputate it. She spent two weeks hospitalized and was sent home late last week. Her infection is still very severe and not healing well. Her daughter quit her job to stay home and help out her mom. Please pray for this family! They are under continuous emotional and financial stress. Pray that Carmen's foot would heal quickly without more complications. Pray that her daughter would be able to return to work quickly and find a good job. Pray that the family would continue to heal physically and emotionally.
