Thank you all for your continuous support and prayer.....we are back in SLC while I'm staying @ the Ronald McDonald house with Able and Remmy for a 2month procedure on Rem's burn scars on his head and face, the 1st surgery is already done but we have to keep a close eye on the inserts on Remmy's head that they won't cause too much pressure on https://funds.gofundme.com/dashboard/loveforthevandijks/media/picker?type=updates his brain or if infections occur. We have to stay here for 2 weeks in SLC, will be able to go back to Wyoming for 2 weeks, have to go back to SLC for 2 weeks and that'll go on in that matter for a little while.
It's almost July 15th , the day this nightmare happened to our family almost a year ago....I personally am dreading the month of July and hope it'll be over soon......Thank you again for your continues prayer and financial support without you we wouldn't be able to continue our journey in this hard but rewarding life.
As we are getting closer to the date when it all happened , July 15th, times are harder emotionally for me. It's quite odd that both Remmy and I will be in the same hospital in SLC as last year upcoming July 15th, Remmy needs some more drastic plastic surgery.
It means he'll be back on narcotics and intubation and we will start all over again.
Noelle will be in Lander Wyoming holding the fort down. But before that will happen we hope to visit New England (where it all happened for Noelle and me) and will hopefully have a very well deserved vacation (1st time in 6 years) to make new memories which we can cherish, although there is a challenge driving one way 2200 miles with one 6 year old and 21 month old twins.
Some of you know that we relied mainly on your generous financial and spiritual support to get through the last 11 months since shortly after my discharge from the hospital I went back to work and in a quick and very harsh way lost my job. Due to your support we were able to continue and survive the many emotional and financial stressors we faced. Now we have a home and hopefully a thriving business.
We just started couples counseling, have our weekly visits with our own individual specialists and Able started expressing more and more about the loss of his best buddies/his brothers he will also be starting weekly specialist meetings.
We would like to ask for your continuing support and prayer through another rough chapter in our lives.
Many blessing to you and your family,
Feike van Dijk
