(Actually, this is a personal email from Elder Eastwood to us, his close family members: his mom, dad, and younger sister. I was not going to, and did not upload this email here when it was received, but decided to add after receiving his final email from his mission this morning on April 13, 2015. Elder Eastwood tried to stay in the mission field as long as he could. – Kumi Eastwood)
So, I debated whether or not to tell you this because I feel that there is already enough on your plate, but the dizziness and headaches are back. Not as bad as before the surgery, but they are definitely back. I’ll admit that I haven’t been doing much in the way of the exercises and I will start doing them pronto again. I’m not sure why they’re back and it’s really frustrating me. It’s been a matter of prayer and fasting in my companionship and our Ward Mission Leader and his wife fasted for me. It’s not so bad that I can’t work, so the plan is to push through it for the next 4.5 months. I’m positive that I’ll be fine. I’m so sorry. I really didn’t want to tell you this. It’s been really hard for me, too. It’ll be okay. Just pray for me, please? I love you!
