Out of the hospital and doing fine!

Hello all.  Gavin here.  I just got out of the hospital about an hour ago and am back to normal.  I had a piece of meat stuck in my esophagus for over 24 hours, so couldn't eat or drink at all during that time.  I spent much of the time heaving and throwing up, so the relief brought by the endoscopic procedure was wonderful.

We are so thankful for the team of people in PNG who have helped in so many ways:  guys that hiked down the mountain in the middle of the night (we were having a father/son camping trip near Ukarumpa), guys that hiked up in the middle of the night to meet me, the clinic team that tried to get the food dislodged and who made the arrangements for my medivac, the aviation team that got me out of PNG to Australia, where I've had excellent care, the member care people helping arrange care of the kids and other details, and the several families who have stepped up and offered to care for one or more of our kids.  What a group!  We are so blessed!

Thank you all for your prayers and concern for us.
