Tomorrow

Tomorrow is Woutertjie’s very last day of chemo.  I feel like I should write something profound tonight.  And I’ve rarely had more trouble thinking of something to write. 

It feels so unreal that I don’t think I will fully realise the significance until next week.  And then it will be too late to post an it-is-the-day-before-the-end post.

I have a definitive flair for the dramatic and not being able to monologue today is a serious let-down.  But I will survive.

  1. Hang tight, jy het nie woorde nodig nie. Almal weet hoe jy voel. X

  2. It is very unreal, but I am quite sure you will find something to say soon—you always do!! Thanks for being such an inspiration to me during this year, I love you so much, W

  3. We have vicariously lived your life with you thanks to this blog and your honest posts. Now that this particular journey is near the end and a clean bill of health is issued i hope you will continue to keep us informed of the lad’s progress in life ..this site is bookmarked and i would like to continue this journey.

    Bonne chance

  4. What a journey! And I only took a few little steps (hardly worth mentioning), but what a life changing experience! Your family has touched me in so many ways – without you even realizing!

    I never missed one of your entries on this blog!

    How about this in a book form? You definately have a story to tell and LOADS of talent! When a writer can make you smile and cry all at the same time…. you know they are good!!!!

  5. Dis ‘n goeie dag!

  6. Yay! We are sooo happy for you guys. You have been an inspiration to us all. And yes the book ideas is great Hanlie – I loved reading your blog!

  7. What a great day indeed. Maybe just the fact that you can not really write about it, explains just how profound the day is.

  8. Is die liewe Vader nie ongelooflik nie.
    Hierdie pad wat julle moes en verseker nogsteeds moet stap raak sooo baie mense om julle se lewens op so spesiale wyse. Dit was goed om saam met julle deur die roete so ver te stap. Mak mens net al hoe meer op ons Vader vertrou en dankbaar bly vir die deel wat vir ons elk uitgedeel word.
    Lief vir julle!!

  9. It’s good to reach the end of one road, look back, realise what you have achieved and overcome.
    It’s even better to look ahead and see the exciting new places you’ll go!

    Good luck for today!

  10. Wat ‘n jaar! Mag dit nou net al beter gaan en julle almal ‘n wonderlike lewe saamhê.

    Hou aan skryf, asb. As jy nou sou stop sal ek my dosis Suzanne verskriklik mis. Onttrekking simptome en al!

  11. Vir alles is daar ‘n tyd en dis vandag die laaste van ‘n tydperk in julle lewe! Dankie dat ek dit met julle kon meemaak!

  12. Ai, ek het nie woorde nie. So bly vir julle. Maar soos die ander gese het ‘ moenie ophou skryf nie’…..ek kom kyk elke dag of daar ‘n dosis lag-en-traan op ‘krokkenoster’ is. Jy was ‘n inspirasie vir my oor die afgelope jaar…..jy sal nooit eers weet hoeveel mense se lewens deur julle geraak is nie.

    Nou….gaan maak die bottel sjampanje oop – en skink ‘n glasie op gesondheid en die toekoms.

    WHAT a God we serve.

    Saam met julle oorstelp.

  14. Hallo Woutertjie,bly om te hoor dat dit so goed gaan en dat vandag jou laste dag vir chemo was. Met n gebed van bo en n liefde volle familie sal jy gou gesond word.van martin en cathryn.

  15. Suzanne as ek so terug dink toe Stephanie my die eerste keer na Woutertjie se kamer, in Panorama, geneem het, om julle te ontmoet ……… weet ek dit is so deur ons Vader bepaal. Ek is verryk deur dit wat ek van jou ontvang het hier op ‘krokkenoster’ en nog ontvang, al ken ons mekaar net deur ‘n enkele ontmoeting. Woutertjie met sy speel swaard en vrolike ou laggie, ‘n prag seunskind met seuntjie behoeftes ……. vir my het jy weer gewys God is alomteenwoordig, hier omvou Hy hierdie kosbare mamma en haar seuntjie met Sy oneindige groot LIEFDE, dat God se hande rondom ons is wanneer ons ly, daaraan hoef ek nooit weer te twyfel nie.
    Saam met julle is ons verheug dat Woutertjie se chemo klaar is ……. Woutertjie, Jesus is so lief vir jou, Hy is jou BESTE VRIEND, en jy en Carien gaan nou al die speel inhaal wat agter gebly het …… geniet dit hoor!!
    Carien is so pragtige dogtertjie, julle is ‘n lieflike gesin, nodeloos vir my om te se, geniet mekaar – geniet elke oomblik, want dit sal julle doen. Liefde straal uit elke een se oe.
    Seen en Baie liefde vir julle vir ‘n pragtige toekoms.
    Louise xx
