August 19 Update

    Hello dear friends! It has been awhile, so time for an update on us. We have just returned from the doctor, and he said I have the flu. This is why all the medicines the last two weeks have not helped me. Normally, he would just let it run it's course. But we are travelling back and forth to North Carolina for Phil's pre-surgery appointments. So he gave me lots of drugs to make me feel well enough for the trips and surgeries.

   The surgeries will be at two different hospitals, Duke and U.N.C. on Chapel Hill. We are driving there this Friday for the team of plastic surgeons to map his face, and may get a date at that time. It took a long time to find a large team of doctors experienced enough to to this procedure. But they are all in place now.

   I so much hope to return to blogging after the surgeries, and I think they must be very close now. You have been so faithful with your prayers and comments. I have the best followers in the world! I will be keeping you informed, and hope to return maybe sometime next month!

The flu! I hate that. Well you got some medicine and I hope it makes you feel better. You are going to some great hospitals with some great doctors. Makes a big difference. Good luck to Phil and I will pray for you both.

So good to hear from you. Yes, I too had flu, lasted more than 2 weeks! It was terrible! Good to hear that the doctors are all in place and most important you are well enough to travel and be with Phil. We wish you both safe journey and smooth and successful surgery for Phil.
