Isaiah 58: 11

Isaiah 58:11

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

Life Interupted

On Thursday evening we were looking forward to spending the weekend with friends from Abu Dhabi. Deanna and Paul are from Bridgewater and moved to the UAE in August 2013. When we picked them up at the airport here in Doha we had no idea how different our weekend would turn out.....
Max played an evening basketball game on Thursday and had a stellar start to his school basketball season (shooting 100% free throws, "buzzer beater" to win the game!). At basketball practice on Friday afternoon his season came to a standstill.

He fell and broke his arm. It was a green stick fracture of the radius, very near his wrist.

The Xray Technician was a referee for Qatar Basketball Federation -- they recognized each other.

Lisa stayed with Max in the hospital overnight while Simon and Tim played hosts to our guests.....

On Saturday morning Max had surgery to set the arm and put in one pin.  The surgery lasted just 20 minutes and the time in the Recovery Room was quite fun!
The photo that received 60+ Likes on FaceBook!!
After spending the better part of the day sleeping, Max was discharged home with very little pain.

We said goodbye to Deanna and Paul and wondered how many other vacations included seeing the local hospital and health care system in action!
