Roadblocks and challenges

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 8:11 am

Update – July 28, 2007 – Good news!  Surgery went well, the tumour’s been removed and Dennis is back at home, offering building advice from the sidelines (see comment under “Roof is sheathed”).

When we began this project we were warned to expect the unexpected — timing problems, weather delays etc.  But we are all surprised that the biggest challenge to date is not house-related; instead it’s a diagnosis of kidney cancer for Dennis.  He continued to work onsite with us between trips back to Toronto for many medical tests and appointments.  Dennis is booked for surgery on Monday, July 23, and we hope to see his truck appear in our driveway soon after a full recovery!

  1. Dear all, very challenging and very unexpected…our prayers are with Dennis and his family…we hope for a speedy and complete recovery. Prayers also that the building process can continue at a good pace. Love, Betty and Terry and boys
