Settling Down (97%)

6 Nov

We’ve hit November and what a whirlwind/ roller-coaster October was.  Susie had her surgery, to remove a tumor from her Parotid Gland, on Monday the 11th.  That first week was very challenging, but we got through it with lots of help from her mom, family (like cousin Amy) and dear friends, specifically Ken and Lisa.  Not to mention, the love and support we received from friends and family via phone calls, emails and FaceBook postings.  All of which culminated in Susie’s check-up visit to the doctor today, where he said she’s healing well and he doesn’t need to see her for six months..  Thank you very much for the get well wishes!

As I’m a stickler for ensuring that one does not get to relax and recover in complete peace, I thought it would be quite humorous if we also moved into our house towards the end of Susie’s two week recovery.  I believe my assumption that the two could be coupled was a bit naive.  Therefore with all of the hub-bub, we still aren’t unpacked.  In fact, I think we have not even reached the 50% mark.  Nonetheless, we do have essentials like beds, clothes and kitchen items at our ready.  We even have phone and Internet working.  So we’re open to chit-chat or even a visit while getting the house in order.  If you want to drop us a line, our FaceBook profile has been updated with our new contact information.

Now if I can just find the coffee machine, I might be a bit more useful in the morning.

Warm regards and much love… Guy
