Where did the time go?
It only seemed like yesterday when we anticipated with dread our second Scottish winter. After many years of abstinence, we so enjoyed our first winter with all the snow that surely the following one would be harder to cope with. But here we are in May having almost ‘sailed through’ the dark and cold weather thanks to God’s sustaining grace and due to other more challenging and important aspects of life that kept us preoccupied and distracted.
Sadly, Thorsten continues to struggle with hearing loss and the surgery in January has not made any difference. The graft has not been fully taken probably because of a fungal infection. As a result, there is still a hole in the eardrum. The consultant wants to give the ear another six weeks to see if the hole closes by itself. If not, there will be another operation. As the medics advised against flying and because ongoing treatment was necessary Thorsten was not able to be at his mother’s 80th birthday. To our great disappointment we also had to cancel our ministry trip to Poland. Kerstin visited Thorsten’s parents for nine days in April providing some practical support with admin and house work.
