Hey Rory and Leigh!  That is fabulous news you can stay at RMcD house, just to have a wee bit of private time must be bliss!  I have just spent the afternoon making batches and batches and batches of pumpkin soup!  Sean is calling in tomorrow afternoon to pick some up.  Enjoy!  Tomorrow Korie is coming to our house for the afternoon, Kathryn is working,  this should make Kody happy!  It will be sooooo good if you get to come home for the weekend!  Now rest up and fingers crossed the shunt is doing its job.  Sending down my bestest thoughts for a pain free restful night.  Lots of love Trudi and Co. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Rory, Leigh, Sean and Sam - wow, I've been away from my computer for a couple of days, so have just managed to catch up on what you have been up to the last few days. It sounds like it has been a very busy first few days of May. You must have a real collection of beads by now.  Rory, you have been through so much, and are so very brave - you guys really are my inspiration, I am so proud of you all - you're all doing so well. Stay strong, and remember we're all thinking of you.  Michelle and family

Hi Rory,
I have finally been able to use a computer and catch up with all your happenings. You have had so much done and have been so very brave.
My friend and I left Auckland on Wednesday night [29th] and flew to San Francisco. It was a very long flight [12+ hours], but luckily I was able to have one of the beds they have in planes and got some sleep. We had a day in San Francisco and managed to go on the BART [a very fast, mainly underground train] and a cable car to Fishermans Wharf. We wondered around there and bought a few little things, watched [and heard!] a whole lot of sea lions, and had dinner at Bubba Gump's restaraunt, which was very nice.
Yesterday we flew to Denver and then had to get another flight to Minneapolis. The reading and writing Convention doesn't start until Monday, so I am going to do some exploring very soon. Tomorrow we are meeting up with some friends and they are going to take us to their place for brunch.
Keep smiling. Love from Miss McLean.
