What a surprise it was to receive a birthday cake for Vladika Lazar, even though the event is long past. However, quite by chance, Lija phoned and informed us that today is Thomas’ birthday, so this cake, mailed here from the United States, has served both birthdays, Thomas’ and Vladika’s. Davey drove us to New Westminster so that Vladika could have an appointment with his surgeon, so it has been rather a tiring day. Moreover, we bought a blood pressure testing kit and began experimenting with it. So far the results are satisfactory. Thomas has his own kit and I think that Father Moses will agree to such testing.
