"Busy" in Holland...

We are in our last week in Holland. And when I look back on our time, we have had a good time! Ofcourse we have had our visits to the hospital, that was the main reason that we came. And the outcome was good. Sarah's heart is not good, but not so bad that she needs the defibrilator. We have had good advice, where to look for and what are the dangerous signs. For the HIV: there are some changes of medication, there was already some improvement in the white bloodcells, also there is some medicin change for Helen. We go back to Soroti with high hopes that things will be better. I was very touched by the care and attention we received from the hospital personel.
In between we have done nice things, here we are at the beach, near the Delta works. It was a beautiful day, but there was a lot of wind. I was forgotten how great it is to walk at the beach and to hear the waves, to feel the sun and to feel the wind blowing

We have a beautiful house with a very nice garden. Sarah and Helen are here in our garden, playing Memory. The weather was great, these last weeks, we have not used our jackets!!! (except yesterday at the beach, for the wind)

This weekend we had a family weekend. We went by car to the North of Holland where my elder brother lives. It was nice to see each other, I don't see my nieces and nephews so often. We all went for a walk into the woods, to the stable where the sheep are staying. When we came there, there were no sheep, the shepherd had taken them out to graze. After some time the whole flock arrived, they all came running. In a speed, it was such a spectacle, even all the new born lambs were running!!
