Hello Everybody

It’s hard to believe that this is my sixth Monday in New Delhi! My feelings of time are different here; it feels like it’s been both long and short at the same time. I am now well on my way to complete healing!

I am feeling a bit tired today, but my sleep is starting to recover after an off-week of waking up several times per night. When I spoke to the doctor about this, she believed that it may be part of the “Retracing” process which the stem-cells tend to trigger for Lyme Disease patients. In this retracing, patients often experience a series of symptoms that previously occurred during the course of the illness, which may or may not have been present recently for the patient. I believe that during my stay here, I have experienced a handful of possible retracing symptoms.

Otherwise, my schedule at the clinic keeps me feeling busy.

I continue each day to thank God for all the blessings and stem-cells I experience/receive on a daily basis, and pray that my sister is able to make the journey here soon despite the recent decline in her health.

Thanks everyone for your encouraging and loving comments, support, and prayers! I wouldn’t be here if not for grace of God many great people! And for this I am extremely grateful!



  1. Hey Ari,

    It’s your most favorite Jeffrey saying hello from back home!

    When you told me you were getting stem-cell treatments in India, I didn’t know your stay in India was going to be over a period of a couple months. I texted you like two weeks after you left expecting you to have already returned! I was worried that I still hadn’t heard from you, so I went on your Facebook, and your mom had posted a little link which led me here.

    I’m glad you seem to be handling your treatments well, and hope this is the answer your family has been looking for. I really enjoyed looking through your pictures and entries to learn a bit about what your experience is like.

    I hope you continue making progress on getting healthy, and whenever it is that you make it back home, you are still socially obligated to respond to my text messages!

    Take care!


  2. Your 6th Monday already! Wow!! I just love all the updates and the many, many pictures you are sharing with us. Such an experience. Wishing Dannie was there with you now. So many people are praying for you and Dannie. Looks like we are going to have to move “mountains” to get Dannie over to Nu-Tech. We never stop praying to our Heavenly Father.
    All my love and lots and lots of hugs for you my sweet Ari,
    Sheila 🙂


  3. Thanks for the uplifting updates. We are happy that Dannie will be in India shortly
