It's Been a While...

It certainly has been a while since I last updated all of you on our comings and goings! Let's see... I had my surgery in June and for about 2 months I had difficulty walking (due to some kind of nerve damage in my leg... completely unrelated to the purpose of my surgery), in August I got pneumonia, had a bad back spasm in the shower which sent me to the floor of the tub, suffered from a very painful neck and found out I had an ulcer... go figure! This month however has been more positive... I am feeling a lot better. I have been referred to a neurologist and for a CAT scan and an MRI... as well I have been referred to another OB/GYN for some things that were missed during my surgery in June. So things are starting to look up... even if it is just having the peace of mind knowing that one day I will have my aches and pains looked into!

Other than that... let's see Ndemufayo came from Namibia and stayed with us for 6 months... that was a HUGE blessing for me considering all the health issues I was having. We were able to go and have some fun when Annemiek came from Holland, and I was well enough to do so (it was just before my surgery). Pete got a job, trucking for Gold Line a company from the Miramichi and he has been doing long hauls as far south as North Carolina, as far east as Newfoundland, and as far west as Toronto Ontario. Talitha and I took a TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) course online. Meagan, Trevor and Tavis have started back for another year at NSER... Meagan will graduate this year and would like to go take a midwifery course in the Philippines (a US certificate at the end of 2 years, lots of practicum and it is a ministry as well). Trevor is in grade 9 and Tavis in grade 8. Sadly they were all put back a grade due to being home schooled and living in Africa (hmmmm)!

I will try to update more often from here on in... this is just a quick scan of the happenings since I last blogged!
