Hey there guys,  Hanging in there I see!  Golly it must be hard keeping up with all of the surgeries! I guess its all good if they go ahead and start the radiotherapy on Tuesday...the sooner it all starts the sooner it gets kicked in the butt!!!  I really wish we could be more help.  Kody and Korie both wore their new t-shirts and looked like a team!  Whare Danielle tried to get Kody to give his up, I think she might want one too! 
Leigh it is great to hear the laptop is up and running  and I guess doing a bit of work when you can will help you to cope too! 
Excellent work Sam with the swimming certificates. Keep up the good work and help Granny keep the home fires burning!!!
Keep strong, please pass on to Rory, Kody says Hi! and the new teacher is cool! 
Sending our love and bestest healing thoughts your way,  Trudi xxxxx

Thinkin of you Rory. Haven't heard of you complaining, what a champion. And Sam, fabulous effort with all your special certificates, that takes just as much courage to achieve when things are a bit topsy turvy. I hope Trudi explained to you Leigh, the thought behind everything in the bag. You know where to go if you want more. Warm fuzzies, positive fibes coming your way from my family.

Hey Rory - the people I work with have given me some lot of jokes to pass onto you:
Why did the chicken cross the road?  'Cos it wanted to.
Why did the chewing gum cross the road?  'Cos it was stuck to the leg of the chicken.
Why was the chicken scared of the chcken?  Because it was chicken.
Knock knock.  Who's there?  Me.  Me Who? Me, who else would it be?
I work with some strange people....Hope these put a smile on your face! Lots of love, Auntie Teri xxxx
