Please Pray For My Friend Gigi Hawaii

“Gigi-Hawaii” is a blog nickname for Glenda Chung Hinchey, a third-generation Korean-American, born and raised in Hawaii.  She graduated from the University of Hawaii (BA Sociology) and then traveled solo around the world for seven years, living in California, Thailand, Europe, and New York.  She taught English at Thammasat University, Voice of America, and AUA Language Center in Bangkok and was a graduate student in music at Columbia University.  A former Hawaii Public Radio commentator,
she has published an anthology, three memoirs 1 .Like a Joyful Bird: A Memoir  2. Love, Life, and Publishing: A Second Memoir 3. Look for Me in Hawaii: A Third Memoir, and many newspaper columns.  She lives with her husband David in Honolulu.  They have two daughters, a son-in-law, and two lovely grandchildren.I met Glenda two years back through her beautiful blog gigi -hawaii .We are regular at each others blog and many of you must have noticed her in comments.She is a warm ,wonderful ,bright and an  inspiring person. Above all she is a great friend .

 About a week back Gigi had to go to the emergency room as she could not close her left eye and the left side of her face dropped. The diagnosis is Bell's Palsy. This is her second Bells Palsy attack ,she previously had it in 2004 on the right side of her face. E.R.doctor referred her to neurologist. She is going to see her neurologist on Thursday.

I have been praying for her and would also request all my blogger friends and who so ever is reading this to  wish and pray for her fast recovery and complete cure  .Thanks.
