Greetings to all of our friends, family and supporters. We have finally decided to become part of the "blogging" world, as our list of e-mail updates just got too long to send all at one time. We hope this is an easy way for everyone to keep in touch with the HOH and what is going on on a regular basis. I will try to update this blog as often as I possibly can, so check it out once a week or so and keep up with what's going on at the HOH...if you can!

These past couple of weeks have been just a whirlwind of activity. In my last update I told you I had to go to Port-au-Prince to see a dentist. And that all went very well, I found a good dentist and was able to get my tooth fixed, so I thank you for your prayers, and thank the Lord for working all that out. It was also good to see some of our missionaries in PAP and get to catch up a bit with them.

Our friends from England left about a week after I got back from PAP, we enjoyed having them here and were sad when they had to leave. Just a few days before they left Linda started having trouble with pain and spasms on her right side. It all came to a head last Thursday night when she started having acute pain and we had to take her to the hospital. The doctors determined she was having a gall bladder attack and suggested I take her ASAP to PAP to get a sonography.

So on Saturday morning we left for PAP. We were able to get the sonography on Saturday as well and got back better results from that doctor than we had been anticipating. We are hoping to be able to control things with a better diet in the future, and are hoping that she will not need to undergo surgery to remover her gall bladder. The doctor here in La Pointe has given us to December, when the doctor in PAP asked us to come back and redo the sonography. If the results are better she won't have to go through surgery. If not, she will have to have it removed.
