Back in PE!!!!

First things first... I'm back in PE and with Antoinette right now... her health is not good. They did the scope, found internal bleeding, could not figure out where it's coming from or what's wrong, so they just sent her home. In pain. So she is, very understandably, quite upset. All the pain for nothing!!!! I wish I could just take her to one of the excellent doctors at Milpark hospital...

Sorry for not blogging the last few days, I used up our internet quota for the month, oops!!! So I have not had internet access since Thursday. We left Joburg yesterday afternoon, and spend the night in Bloemfontein, where we have family. The pics are of me and my cousins, ML and Nicola. Nicola graduated yesterday, so it was her graduation dinner! Unfortunately she didn't feel too well, as her dad took her out to eat skaapkop (a sheap's head... I know, gross) after graduation, so she was feeling a bit sick!!! )mental note: never eat skaapkop!!!!
Arrived in PE at about 12 o'clock. Very excited about my week here, will keep you posted!!! And so excited about Tricia being home...

Looks like a fun time.
I will be praying for Antoinette.
Internal bleeding? Sent her home?
Sure hope she can see a different
doctor!
I won't forget that mental note. Skaapkop does not sound very good. So excited for Tricia too.
Have a great weekend.

hey!
I would like to thank all you guys out there who've been praying for me etc. in the past week. I still have some pain (it comes and goes), and I'm not sure what the case is with the internal bleeding (my blood pressure remained stable while I was in hospital, so that's a good sign that the bleeding did not increase) ... but I am home, and starting to recover, slowly but surely, seems like this last op really took the wind out of my sails! But life goes on ... and the doctor's are really trying to find out what's wrong where - they are doing the best they can, under the circumstances anyways. And sending me home from hospital was in all honesty an educated choice from their side ... not one of the 4 specialists would do anything to harm me - I really have a lot of faith in their decisionmaking ability.
Rgds, Antoinette
