Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) candidate for Micoud North, Jeremiah Norbert, has thanked citizens for their outpouring of love and prayers which he says have helped in his recovery.
He did so while providing an update on his medical condition.
“It was overwhelming,” Norbert said of the support he has received.
He spoke in a video recording on the SLP’s official Facebook page on Monday.
The SLP candidate was at the time in his Tapion Hospital bed.
He was preparing to leave for further medical attention in Martinique.
Norbert sustained ‘serious ‘injury to his right leg in a road accident on February 17.
As a result, emergency personnel took him to St Jude Hospital.
He later went to Tapion Hospital.
Norbert explained that Dr. Jeffers, who performed surgery, was able to ‘salvage’ the damaged limb.
He said he was thankful to Jeffers.
But the SLP candidate said the doctor was not acting of his own accord.
“Because of the prayers that went up, he was able to salvage my foot,” Norbert asserted.
“Your prayers have been answered my people,” he declared.
Norbert said he wanted to reassure Saint Lucians and especially the people of Micoud North that he remains committed to the cause.
“I remain committed to being the representative for the people of Micoud North,” he said.
“And I know that God will see me through.”
He called on those who have already started the groundwork to continue their effort.
“The journey has only just begun,” Norbert declared.
He said he is not able to be there physically because of being in a hospital bed.
But Norbert noted that with God, everything is possible.
As a result, he expressed the view that sooner rather than later, he will be back stronger than before.
“Rest assured that Jeremiah will be back,” he stated.
