Leaving for Calgary the day after tomorrow - have to be in a few days early for blood tests and surgery prep. Surgery is on the 7th of June.
CONTACT Info and Mailing Address
After speaking with my sister, its probably best to ship postcards/ cards there ( thank you so much for the offer Chelsea! <3 <3 ); so, with her leave, her address is posted up on the blog: ( beatingjellybelly.blogspot.ca/ )
Email can be sent to Chris': erekose13ATgmail.com ; between them, they will pass messages and cards along. Thank you so much for the book suggestions, for the prayers and good energy. I do ask that if you have a flu/ nasty cold you don't actually mail things though ( maybe e-cards instead? : ) )... infection would be a really bad thing while I'm recovering, so I have to take extra care to make sure everything is extra sterilized.
In regards to communication, I will be in surgery on June 7th, which means that Chris will be at the hospital. He really won't be able to answer emails/ phone a lot of people, as you can understand. The staff should let him know every few hours how everything is going, and he will pass the info along to my sister Ula ( so she can update family) as well as post it here on the blog.
So, further updates will be on the blog ( beatingjellybelly.blogspot.ca/ ) pretty much - after Chris heads back home Ula will be posting blog updates. Hopefully there's not much to report beyond a great operation and a quick recovery, but we wanted to have a central place to post updates and news. I know from personal experience that sometimes not knowing ( and imagining all sorts of terrible things ) is worse than being aware of what is going on, even if there are setbacks/ complications.
I hope to be back by August, if everything goes well. <3 <3
