Following our flight, we will spend the weekend catching up on rest & getting settled into our apartment. On Monday morning we will meet with Dr. Thaller to discuss his treatment plan for Brad and to make initial arrangements.
The town that we are staying, Markt Berolzheim, is very small (about 1500 people). Although, we are without internet access there, we plan to drive into neighboring towns to use the internet cafes so that we can send/recieve email...and of course, so that I can update our blog!
On a very exciting note...I FOUND MY CAMERA!!! Yippee! As I was repacking my suitcase last night..I found my camera pushed in amongst my clothes. The reason I know Kaelyn put it in there (although Brad doesn't believe me) is because it was without it's case and cords. A mom would never put an uncovered camera in a suitcase to be thrown around and smashed by baggage handlers! Brad thinks I use Kaelyn as my scape goat (ok, maybe sometimes), but this time...I know it was the little rascal! Plus, I caught her in the act of riffling through my bag last week...unpacking and repacking...so that proves it, right?
We will be in Germany through most of June, returning to Houston on the 25th. Several have asked about numbers and addresses. I believe the best way to send mail would be through the clinic. Their address is:
c/o Dr. Arno Thaller
91801 Markt Berolzheim
Jane mentioned to me that she had researched postal prices and found:
Postage on a normal size greeting card is 94 cents...if it's over
1 oz and less than 2 ozs, then it would be $1.75...this is air
mail...3-5 business days.
I believe the phone at the clinic is also the best way to contact us. We will be there for treatment M-F from about 8-3pm. Because Germany is 7 hours ahead, between the hours of 6-8am (Central/Standard) might be the best time to try a phone call. The number at the clinic is 011-49-9146/311.
We appreciate your prayers during this time of travel. We feel confident in the work being done by Dr. Thaller and we are excited to see God work through him. We can't wait to return home to see each of you soon. Thank you for your unwavering support & love. We love you all.
