May in Chattanooga

A dear friend, Renee Gage
My recovery is going well.  After the surgery I pretty much just slept for 4 days, but I think living on the top floor in a mission house has helped me get back on my feet quickly.  I'm not interested in walking around Walmart yet, but I feel pretty good most of the time.

We've been able to change our tickets to fly to Accra, Ghana on June 6th.  From there we'll drive across the border into Togo. We're so glad to have this time to spend with some dear friends and family before our move.

Our boys have enjoyed the extra playtime with cousins. They especially like to play in the water outside.

Surgery tomorrow

The last weekend of our time in Qu├ębec saw us visit the hospital again - this time for me.  Apparently, I have a "truckload of gallstones" (the ultrasound tech's words, not mine!). We made it down to Chattanooga without any major issues, and the surgery to remove my gallbladder is set for tomorrow morning.  With our flight to Togo scheduled for May 14th, that doesn't leave much time to recover, so we're pushing our tickets back a few weeks.

Maybe God knows we need more time with family and friends, time to rest, shop, drink Starbucks, whatever. . . before heading to Togo.  His timing is always the best timing.  He does everything for my ultimate good and for His glory.  

Please pray for me during surgery and during my time of recovery.
