THIS EASTER and ALWAYS!
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
Dear family, friends, fans and sponsors,
Our previous newsletter went out as a Christmas/Newsletter, with the review of the British tour we did late Spring/ early Summer, 2017, and some other news. As we haven’t been on the road, there is not a lot of news to tell you.
Kate’s mother is doing ok. She has 3-monthly checkups and so far has been doing ok. Her latest one was last week, en even though the symptoms are getting worse, the oncologist suggested to hold off on the radiation, until it was really necessary. She’s not in pain, and can cope with the inconveniences.
A.G. is still struggling with health issues. He had several changes of medication, but the side effects were terrible, and they didn’t cure anything. After the latest change of medication, he’s been retaining a lot of fluid,
and this time not only in his legs. Last week the doctor did an ECG, a lung function test, bloodwork and sent him to the hospital for a lung x-ray. The x-ray showed he has fluid behind the lungs and some of the bloodwork showed heart failure. We’re now waiting for an appointment with the cardiologist.
Before this all happened, we had just started contacting everybody in England, to see who would be able to host a program June/July. Whether or not that will be able to take place, remains to be seen. Of course we will keep everybody involved, informed.
One of the donkeys (Jessi) has been struggling with a sore leg, and Kate has been nursing it for weeks. Jessi has been very patient and it looks like it is a tiny bit better.
With age we all have to deal with inconveniences and illness, both ourselves, family and friends. We hope and pray we can all deal with them with patience and grace.
We wish you a HAPPY EASTER.
