I don't know how many of you know, but I have been in ICU for over 10 days fighting COVID. Thank you for your prayers and your patience as I continue to battle this disease with the help of the Lord. I have been released home but I am not 'out of the woods' they say. The next 10 days are considered crucial in determining whether I recover or relapse. I had no prior conditions but have sustained complications including heart, brain, lung damage. I currently need a machine to breathe. Signficant recovery is expected to take 16 weeks but as you can see, God is at work, and I am here able to get CA ready (albeit late). I love you all. I know many of you are praying - with all my heart, thank you. Dr. Lyndsey
This week and next I will extend the deadlines to give as much time as needed for you to complete the videos and assignments. Obviously, I apologize for the delay and inconvenience and pray the material in CA continues to bless you, inform you and inspire you to lead well.
