Life At Korthuis Manor
Captain Randy and his First Mate!

When Nathan was in the hospital, and then once he was home, his twin cousins, Karlie and Kenadi, came to visit him and bring him pictures! It was so sweet and it was really a time for Nathan to get to know them a little better - they are 17 years apart!! (not the twins - Nathan and the twins are 17 yrs apart :-)

Last week Karlie had her tonsils out - not fun! So Nathan bought her a toy, and we took it to her house yesterday.

(sidenote: I had already posted this blog and went back to read it again, and noticed karlie's shirt in the picture - how cute is that?!?!?)

Hand surgery is set for tomorrow at 11:30 in Bellingham. We're not sure at all what they are going to do, except remove the 4 pins in his right hand. It doesn't sound like they plan on doing anything else. I guess we'll know after surgery and they get in there to see what is going on.

My sweet SIL Kim is going to sit with me - you will all remember how I love surgery days - no matter how small.

Today just work, physical therapy and to Bellingham to do pre-op stuff - BUT WE HAVE SUNSHINE, and that helps the spirits SO MUCH!!!

"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come (God is holding on to us :-), nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor ANYTHING ELSE(insert here:motorcycle accidents, surgeries....) in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 8:38-39

Just found your blog tonight ... and read the past 2 months worth of posts.

I read about this accident in the Lynden paper ... and prayed for your son several times (as the Lord brought him to mind). I had just surprised my husband with a Harley for his 50th birthday, so this hit close to home for me. (I'm so not a motorcycle person, but it was hubby's dream.)

Your posts reminded me of the 3 weeks we spent in Children's Hospital, the first 2 weeks spent in ICU. Our son was 3 years old ... in a coma ... not expected to live. God chose to miraculously save his life.

Wish we'd had a blog back in 2005. What a great way to journal ... for your friends and family, and for your memories of the miracles that God has done. I made a 65 page scrapbook of our little Elijah's Miracle.

So thankful that Nathan is doing so well. Praising the Lord with you.


PS: We know Steve & Robin. Great family!
