Updates


Ok I have some news to share, my daughter Jessica was operated on yesterday afternoon, she is recovering ok still has drainage tube in her stomach but is off the pain-relieving drip but still not feeling that great, she doesn't know when she will be home as yet. However, that is probably a good thing as this is what her front lawn looks like and her street is without electricity and the street is still cornered off due to fallen trees. Leo of course is here and he is fine not distressed in any way about his mum not being here and being in hospital.

In other news some may have heard about the elderly lady who was killed in Maitland due to her car being swept away in flood waters. Well it turns out the woman is my sister in-laws grandmother, so her family are shocked and sadden by this, they were worried yesterday about her when they saw the car on the news and realised it looked like her car, so they tried to ring her and were unable to contact her.



This is a photo from Facebook of Sydney harbour bridge, thought it was a wow photo so sharing it as well.

Natasha is working five nights a week at her new cleaning job and either me or Jono have Blain while she is at work,he is suppose to be picked up by his dad this afternoon sometime I don't know when though I was told between 4-5pm but it is now 5.10pm and he still isn't here.


Blain will be off school till Monday while they continue to clean up the school after the storm, Leo went back to school today but there are a number of school still closed till Monday.

  2. I'm so sorry about all the destruction and devastation. It's good that Leo is accustomed to being with you so he isn't frightened.

    Love,

  3. Just glad none of you were hurt in the storm. Isn't it funny how God timed her hospital stay with the disaster?

    1. Yes I thought that but if I was to say it to her she would get annoyed as she isn't that religious

  4. Hi, Jo-Anne! I continue to wish Jessica a speedy and complete recovery. It's shocking to learn how flood ravaged parts of your country are and I am sad to learn that the woman who was swept away to her death is related. I hope circumstances on all fronts improve soon. God bless!

  6. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    Glad the surgery went well and yes, in this case she is a lot more stress free at the hospital than at home!
    So sad to learn from TV about a car that belongs to your Grandmother; your sister-in-law must have been shocked. May all involved receive God's strength for pulling through this.
    Hugs to you,
    Mariette

  9. Thank God about your daughter mending well. I am horrified at the storm damage. Did YOU get much of that storm or was it in another part of Australia. No, I think jot had to have been where you are as you said your daughter's home has fallen trees on the lawn and that there is no electricity. Was that a tornado or a hurricane or a bad terrible electrical storm?

    1. Yes the storm was right around us, we don't get tornados or hurricanes really here it was a category 2 cyclone, last night we had an electrical storm but it wasn't that bad where we are
