Last night the Surgeon said she could have tea! That’s hot tea, and for our American friends we do that here in South Africa no matter how hot the weather is. Julie still cannot eat solids, but the tea thing is a big boost for one’s spirit (if you like the stuff). To date there has been no infection whatsoever. Praise the Lord, as this is the major concern. Tentatively, Julie may be moved to a normal ward on Wednesday, and then released on Saturday. It would be great to have her home the end of the week-a home with only two boys and a dad quickly becomes a lonely (and disorganized) place.
