Alida is having computer problems in Russia & is unable to post...so this is Tom filling in. Also, yesterday the washing machine went down but Alida was able to get a 'master' (repairman) to the flat within an hour who replaced the pump.
Tom's doctor appointment went very well. He will be having surgery next Wednesday the 15th. It will be an outpatient procedure & he'll return home the same day. He then has a flight leaving America on Tuesday the 21st & will arrive home in Krasnodar on Thursday the 23rd!! Alida's very excited that Tom's surgery & return to Russia will be sooner than we had anticipated! Thanx for your prayers!
