Selena Update

We went to visit Selena today in hospital. She’s in a great deal of pain but in good spirits. She’s had an enormous amount of wellwishers, card and gift-bearers and she’s very thankful to everyone who’s been thinking of her. The windowsill beside her bed is burgeoning with cards, balloons and teddy bears!

There’s not much I can say about her specific condition medically, but she is stable now and remaining positive.

Thank you to everyone who’s held her in their prayers. Please try to keep her there over the next few weeks and even months. Her road to recovery will be a long one and she will need all the prayers that can be offered. Thank you for everyone’s kind words and thoughts too.

Thank you and God Bless.
Steve and Rose.

In Need Of Assistance

I don’t normally use this diary to appeal for personal assistance, because generally it’s not appropriate, but I am making an exception this time because my personal diary doesn’t get the readership that this one does.

A very good friend of mine (and Rose’s best friend) Selena is in the intensive care unit after she was involved in a near fatal motorcycle accident on Saturday. She has broken her back and the doctors are saying she may never walk again.

To all of you who believe in God, please pray with us that God will provide her with a second miracle (the first being that she lived at all) so that she will be able to walk again. God will know who you’re praying for without me needing to give you a great deal of personal details because Rose and I have been speaking to Him constantly since we found out yesterday. Selena has so much to offer everyone who meets her and we know she makes a positive difference to people’s lives with whomever she comes into contact.

To those who don’t believe in God, please send her your good wishes anyway.

Thanks, and apologies for the blatant personal use of this diary for this purpose!

Steve and Rose.

Much Slackness in the Support Area

Afternoon all,
We must apologise for the very slow responses people have experienced recently when writing with support requests (or actually, any kind of requests). We have just completed an overseas move which saw us leave our house in England on the 9th of October, and only just yesterday arrive in our new house in Australia.

In the meantime of course we have been without significant internet access (fortunately the server seems to have behaved itself without intervention in all that time!) and had to rely on the occasional webmail session – which is just not nice for replying to long technical e-mails! Couple that with the fact that we’ve been SO busy with real life things (selling cars, packing boxes, dumping much rubbish, moving day, visiting family one last time before leaving, living out of suitcase, flying halfway round the world, living with family while we organize our new home, buying new car, getting phone, electric and broadband on, moving in, unpacking boxes, getting new mobiles, chasing electric company because they hadn’t switched the electric on, figuring out broadband settings because ISP’s tech support line takes years to get through to, you get the idea ;-)) and you can perhaps begin to see what’s happened :-)

Anyway, as of today we’re pretty much back in the saddle, the broadband is in and working despite that we’re in one of the most rural areas I’ve ever seen (yay Telstra!) and so we should be able to keep things ticking along nicely again.

If you’ve sent a support request that has not been answered now, please resubmit it, as it’s obviously been ‘lost in the post’ because we have answered all the messages in the support inbox now.

Ta!
Steve and Rose.
