Well no sooner did i write that message yesterday than i got home yesterday and found Georgie with a temperature and chesty again!
This frequently happens though why this so suddenly we don't know. She has been good and there hasn't been anyone around with any wogs. It is always so hard to see her getting sick just when you think she is going well.....

I just heard this verse again
Matthew 21v 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

Thursday 19th

Dear friends we are all well and have been enjoying the Christmas break.
Greg and James went fishing with his cousin Pete and son Scott to Adaminaby for a few days. 4 fish in all and had a great time. We went for a walk up to Kosciusko one day which was fantastic. It was a beautiful clear day.
People often ask us how is Georgie? and has there been any change? can she talk yet? etc. so mostly we just have to say no not really. From time to time she is much more aware like yesterday when we were doing some stretching exercises with her and she was trying to sit forward and swinging her arms to let us know she was feeling it. So yes she doesn't just lie there unaware. Sometimes she will be agitated and if i sing to her she calms down.(at least someone appreciates my singing!)
The weather has been hot during the days but is mild enough in the late evenings to take her for a walk in the wheel chair down the road. It was beautiful yesterday in the late evening with the sky all purple and the moon already up, horses running in the paddocks and the reflections in the creek still full of water.

Some things to pray for:-
God's continued peace over our house.
The nurses who have become a bit familiar and lazy who cause tension at home.
For home care support to continue (there is some talk that some of the funding may dry up)
For Georgie to improve
Thankful that like last Christmas Georgie has had a good month.
Em as she leaves home and goes to Vanuatu on the 7th Feb

We are thankful to all who pray and friends who encourage us.
Ange and i have been reading Spugeons devotions which are very encouraging reminding us that God is a good God and we can rely on Him and that He answers prayer.

Monday 3rd Jan

Happy new year to you all!
We had a lovely time at Kurrajong with Anges mum and dad at Christmas and not a single thing went wrong.
We were able to take Georgie down with us in the car which was about a 4 and a half hour trip. She handled it just fine.
It was great to be able to all go away together for a few days and was the first Christmas we have all had down there for 4 years as a family.
We took her for a couple of walks around Kurrajong. The climate there is so much more pleasant than Dubbo where it is often too cold, too hot or too windy to take a little girl prone to chest troubles for walks. So we made the most of it.
Some folks from Kurrajong Baptist came up to the house to meet her. They have been praying for her since the beginning. Thank you to those people who have sent us encouraging messages of continued prayer.
We are all enjoying being on holidays together and geting a lot done. Greg and James have almost finished building a shed together and so feeling a sense of achievement. It's good having Em and James around to help look after Georgie, who has been reasonably good for the past week.
Only 5 weeks until Emily heads off to Vanuatu for six months.
