Each of us may be sure that, if God sends us
over rocky paths, He will provide us 
with sturdy shoes.  He will never send us
on any journey without equipping us well.
                                                               - Alexander Maclaren

Another call from the neurosurgeon with regard to Wynand this morning.  Just wanting to give me some feedback.  
  • The problem is complex (heard that one before).
  • The possibility of another sudden bleed is small. 
  • Wynand's condition is not likely to suddenly deteriorate.
  • The clever Professor in Cape Town needs the CT and MRI scans as well before he can make a informed decision. (oi, why did they not send it in the first place?)
  • So more waiting?


  1. well, this is really a test of ones patience,hey?? good luck and have a wonderful week.
    ps: i made a BIG oopsie!!! i will e-mail you later!!

  2. Good morning to you.
    I understand your frustration. I would also ask the same questions. What stands out to me is not the word 'complex', but the words 'not likely to deteriorate' and'possibility of another bleed is SMALL' ! I would hang on to those for dear life.
    My thoughts and prayers are still with every one in your family that is struggling with his or her own problems.
    My amazing friend Constance (other people think she is my helper), would say: "Moet ek die deur oopmaak solat die dybel kan ytkom?"
    I say: "Ja, maak oop daai deur, Lat hy kan loop!"

  3. Hi Lynette

    Just thought I'd share this verse with you today :

    "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." - 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

    May there be a breakthru in Wynand's situation soon - & that you all stand and shine with a resilience that reveals the overcoming Spirit of Jesus Christ.

  4. Thanks for the update. Well lets keep trusting for the best possible outcome. Thinking of you often, Lynette. His strength to you. xx

  5. oh my word. i cannot even begin to imagine .... more waiting. but at least there is some hope in what you have heard.

    love to you my friend

  6. Hey my friend - I think Mel said it all really.
    We continue looking to the Lord with you for the situation.

  7. Sounds like good news though...typical though that he was not equipped with the basics on which to make his decision

  8. Lynette... cast all your cares and worries...upon Him...

  9. Sounds like some of that is good news, huh? Hang in there!

    That photo is so pretty.

  10. oohh Lynette!! this page is fabulous, I love the verse, I love coming to your blog and find God's word!! thank you so much for sharing.

    Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.( Ephesians 6:13
    God bless you my friend.

  11. Hi Lynette, I have been popping in from time to time to see if there was any news. I feel deep down in my heart that everything will work out just fine.
    You are surrounded by so many beautiful friends who really care and love you.
    Stay strong.
    Hugs, Irene xx

  12. Big Hug.

    I have going through something similar with my Dad and his heart issues. patience and faith is what I am learning as well. If medicine was an exact science is what I kep telling myself.

    blessings to you and family.


  13. Wat 'n pragtige versie!!! Ek glo absoluut daarin.

    Hou moed my maatjie - God het ook hiermee 'n groter plan! :)

  14. what is it with neurosurgeons and waiting???????? (Remember my December????)
    Thinking of you, and trusting that all will be OK x-x

  15. Both of you are still in my prayers.
    Wynand's recovering is already written by God,
    we just got to believe it.

    Me got an award for you!
