3rd of 7 ...

It has been amazing to me how the fine layer of hair has been persistantly trying to come back... and although it's not that clear in this picture, it's such a big difference to us to see him with his eyebrowns trying to return, his hair, his eyelashes... We are all speculating what colour his hair will be when it does finally grow back early next year!

My goodness, what a busy week! JohnD's third treatment went without any glitches or surprises ... all very smooth! We drove down on Thursday and came back yesterday. We had an Air Force Base function last night too, so it was a pretty long and busy day.

We had one really GREAT thing happen... the night before we left for Pretoria, JohnD called me to the bathroom to proudly show me that he had finally won his war on the varruca that has plagued him for the past four months!!! We had booked an appointment (during the last session of chemo) with a skin Dr to cut it out while we were there this week... and so it was wonderful to not have to have that proceedure done! THANK YOU LORD! For the past three weeks, he has cut and scratched and irritated it so much, and when the whole thing came off in the bath - it was an answer to prayer!

We were all was very sad to say bye to the Jakobson family, as Sofie and the kids left on Sunday to return to Sweden. On Tuesday, we came home from town with Agnes' little black bunny rabbit - MINI (he's a boy), and a new kitten for Micaela. This is the first time we have actually had a little rabbit... so there was great excitement for ALL of us - not just us people!!!

Early Wednesday morning, we woke to see that Lady had found a way into Mini's cage, and was curled up sleeping with Mini!!! I guess we no longer need to worry about her hunting instincts!

Micaela is totally undecided on a name for her new little kitten, so she asked me to have you all VOTE!!! :) The two names she can't decide between are "KIT-KAT" or "ASTRO". So email us your opinion.
JohnD has a little friend here today. Maurits. It's overcast and cool, so they are quietly playing with the lego. Big hugs to you all, and lots of love xxx
