Going home...

ALICE IS AT HOME! She got discharged earlier today, and is now at home in Johannesburg, together with her parents and sister. Today was also a big day because half of her staples came out, and she managed to walk up 2 flights of stairs WITHOUT getting short of breath. At the moment she's very tired, and I'm sure she's already on her way to bed, but all the exercise is good for her. She's going in to the hospital on Thursday for a check-up. I'm sure that in no time at all she'll be back online, and blogging like crazy :)!

Again, just to remind everyone .... in particular the South African followers of the blog: please DO NOT send flowers or chocolates, she has CF related diabetes and can't have flowers close to her, at all! If you feel that you would like to send her something, although (and quoting her mom), 'it's really not necessary', you can rather send a voucher for Exclusive Books etc. or just a card! If you need to get an address, just mail me at antoinettegreeff@gmail.com.

So, does this mean that flower-shaped chocolates and chocolate scented flowers are not welcome?

Have been praying for you and so glad to hear that you are at home...
Took me a while to find your blog again but since I knew that God had you safe in His care,I could rest in that knowledge and thank Him for all He is doing for you.
