Well Hello There!

Hi! It's Melissa here, i don't even know if there are any of you still tuning into our blog, and i apologize for not updating more often, but we don't want to bore you. Take no news, as good news!
These past weeks have been filled with Colin getting more and more involved with the recruit class here in the city, training and refreshing himself, in preparation to return sometime this spring! I can't believe we're on day 87 post transplant! It's gone incredibly fast, and we haven't stopped learning, but the choas has slowed, so we've been able to take time to rest as a family. Our boys keep us on our toes and we're constantly laughing at the things they get into together!
Last week, Colin and i were asked to share our story at the "connection", a city-wide college and career group here in Medicine Hat. It was still difficult as our emotions are still fresh, but they were healing tears, and God used the discussion and questions that were asked, as a little mini counselling session. There were things brought up that Colin and i hadn't thought of, or talked about yet, so it was also healing to voice those unspoken aspects of what we went through!
This past weekend, Colin actually played in our camp fundraiser floor hockey tourney! Crazy guy just can't stay away from anything normal! haha...he did awesome and i think he had a great time! He was surprised he wasn't as sore as thought, so that was an added bonus!
i'm proud to report that Keegan and Corban are now settled back into our Sunday School and Wednesday morning BibleStudy classes, so now, we are actually able to have fun, each in our own areas at the church.....i thought it would take longer, so i'm really glad we can feel that kind of normal again as well!
Other than this, we are just taking things one day at a time, we're good, and it feels good to say that! Anyways, i should go play some Wii with Corban, i'll make sure we report when more news comes up!
