Wednesday afternoon...

Hello! A mid-week update! This week has been very quiet so far, not much news. The two pics were taken on Monday afternoon, my mom and I went for a walk. There is a nature reserve at the end of our street, which is lovely, but we're too scared to go in there alone, so we just hang around the edges! Our flat is at the top of the street, so it's quite a steep walk back up. On the bottom photo I'm standing next to our block of flats.

We're still strugling to get internet... I spent an hour on the phone with Telkom yesterday and we're waiting for them to call back... whenever that's going to be. Also had a visit from an aunt of my mom's whom I've never met, which was nice.

Going to the doctor again on Friday, so will update again. Doubt whether it's possible that my lung function has increased more during the week! Below is a note from my mom...

Dear Blog Readers

This is Alice's mom; I want to thank every one for their prayers and support during the past month. We as parents thank the Lord for what he has done for Alice and the support He has given to us during this time. The most amazing thing for me is just to watch her; her nails and lips are pink again and she can walk without O2.

Whenever we went somewhere and I wanted to know where Alice was, I just listened for a cough; today in a shop I also wanted to know where Alice was, I listened and there was no cough!

We have met awesome people during this time; especially people from the Milpark hospital, doctors, nurses, physiotherapist, transplant coordinator, receptionists and the list can continue. These people work tirelesly to help and support Alice and always with a smile and a word of encouragement.

I thank the Lord for this road that we have walked with him.

May God bless you all

You look great, Alice! I'm enjoying the photos, thanks for posting. I am, however, curious why you're uneasy going into the reserve alone? Enjoy that warm sun...we've got 8 inches of snow in wintry Northeast Ohio, USA!!!

Another follower from Northeast Ohio here! My comments and questions are very similar to Kidsworld - loving to see you looking so healthy, wondering about that reserve, and a little bit jealous of your sun. To your Mom, wow, how lovely for her to see your blooming health and NOT hear your cough. Hope you have a great report on Friday and that you get your internet soon!

Alice- it is so great to see you up and at 'em again. I want you to know that I've not stopped thinking and praying for you and your recovery.

Thanks so much for the frequent updates and pictures. They are so wonderful.

Dear Rene
I know what you talking about when listening to hear your daughters cough-I am also a mother in the same boat as you are.
It is so encouraging to read about Alice's miraculous recovery and her faith- I believe in the power of prayer.
