See what happens?

When I make such an effort to post on a Wednesday, I don’t post anything else for the rest of the week.

I think I am going to let Wednesdays take care of themselves.  I have a lot of news.

First up:

I went to visit Lydia, my friend who was in the accident last week, in hospital on Wednesday.  She has since been moved out of ICU.  I am planning on visiting her tomorrow.  She is doing better.  She is still very fragile but with the number of broken bones she suffered one can’t expect anything else.


Woutertjie had his 1 month checkup on Friday.  Cristina is happy, therefore we are happy (remind me to tell you the story behind this one day).  

Boeta had a fabulous time talking to her.  The two of them had a lot to say to each other.  And Woutertjie, of course, said everything in English.  Not bad for a child who could barely say hallo in English when he met her. 

Woutertjie was Cristina’s first private oncology patient – look how far we’ve come.


Ethan had his final CT scan and he is just perfect.  This was a good day. 

Here are the two of them at Panorama’s entrance.


Sharon, our fabulous nurse who started working with Woutertjie when he was just diagnosed and has been with us through all of the ups and downs, received the Compassion Award.  Every year on Nurses’ Day each MediClinic hospital selects its Nurse of the Year.  This is the Compassion Award and the winner is chosen based on fellow nurses’ recommendations.  We are so happy that Sharon won this year.  She really is a gem and without her our road would’ve been so much longer and harder. 

From all of us, a big thank you to Sharon.  You are an angel.

  1. Sou wat wou gee om Woutertjie te hoor ingels praat….

    En ag, hoe wonderbaarlik goed van Ethan se uitslae!

    Saam bly oor Sharon se toekenning. Hoe sou ons ooit deur die lewe gekom het sonder ons “engele”?

  2. I am glad everything is going so well. It is nurses like Sharon that really makes it all better.

  3. Wonderlike nuus oor Woutertjie, Ethan en Sharon. Ethan en Woutertjie lyk soos twee boeties op daai foto. Wys jou.

    O, en beskou jouself as herinner, so vertel nou die verhaal.

  4. 🙂 aan Elmarie … But ofcourse! Ek is mos darem Suzanne se suster van n ander moeder is netreg so dat ons kinders soos familie lyk 🙂
