Update April 4, 2007
Mercedes would like to thank everyone for continuing their support to her, the Corby family and especially for standing strong for Schapelle. These have been a very hectic few months and there's been a great deal of upheaval. Schapelle has been amazed by the number of letters still coming in and care packages that are helping her maintain that much needed contact with the outside world and normality. Please keep your letters coming and thank you to all those who have sent gifts, reading material, elephants, and letters.
A very special thank you to the Red Cross for fixing the water pump problem in the female section of Kerobokan. It's a real moral boost to have clean water most times.
Schapelle is keeping her spirits up, despite the set backs, and she's so grateful that all the supporters have not forgotten her. It really does make a difference when the night comes and she's cut off from her family, knowing that she can pick up a letter from someone back home and read such comforting words before finally attempting sleep.
Schapelle will be visiting the dentist again today [Wed, April 4, 2007]. Mercedes wont' be going with her this time but said that brother Michael will hold Schapelle's hand like a good brother should.... and the Australian consulate will also be attending in accordance with policy relating to prisoners.... AND just in case a certain Australian Television program is reading this.... a proper police escort will also be escorting Schapelle to and from the prison, as USUAL, and without any sidetrips to exotic beaches or bars! Teeth will be pulled today!
Please join us in wishing our Schapelle the very best. No one likes going to the dentist but we know that brother Michael will have her giggling in know time ... taking her mind off the ordeal!
Thank you again to all the Schapelle Supporters on behalf of Schapelle, her family and sister Mercedes for continuing to stand firmly beside them. Your support makes this incredible journey more bearable!
