We are all slowly recovering from our respective colds. I also started back at work Monday - just from home doing contract/project work. I am just trying to figure out the balance of what will work with my life. Mom is helping me where needed - yeah for Grandma.
By the way, check out Bronwyn's shirt in the picture! Mel gave it to me - cute eh?
Dad found this news story the other day. It is about the girl Melissa that I asked you all to pray for about a year ago. She was waiting for a transplant at that time. Before we left the Stollery the first time she had been put on the Berlin Heart (amazing technology). I think I also reported that her heart had nearly healed when we returned for Bronwyn's second surgery.
This technology helped give her the time and energy for her body to heal itself. Her family is thankful for the Berlin heart but I am sure they are even more thankful for the prayers that were prayed for their daughter.
These are exciting times. I know I have mentioned it but the surgical team in Edmonton is amazing. They continue to evaluate and make little changes trying to improve their techniques and results. During Bronwyn's second surgery they made one subtle change to the way it is normally done. Dr. Rebeyka explained this to me and when I told my cardiologist in Calgary she was simply amazed at how creative and inventive the team is.
I was thinking about starting a Dr. Rebeyka fan club - I don't know what we would do though. So maybe not.
