You know the expression “when it rains it pours” that´s kind of how our day went.
Tyler´s trip this morning was fruitless & he will be up there on Monday morning to try again.
Our youngest son woke up from his nap running a fever. Thankfully there is a doctor who will make house calls, she arrived at 8pm & just left. Our two youngest, Tyler & I all have strept throat. So far the rest of the kids & Martha just have a little redness in their throats & we are hoping that it doesn´t turn into anything else. Tyler is headed to the drugeria so we can start our antibiotics ASAP because after we receive our Sentencia (prayerfully on Monday) we head to the US Embassy doctor´s office, & without a clean bill of health for the kids we will not be able to head home.
The doctor did make a great comment, she said that she sees this in many families, you are so stressed & upset about not being able to go home that it begins to take a toll on your body. She said that usually after families sign the Sentencia & are able to head home they make miraculous recoveries.
I feel like I could win, “the neediest person on the internet” award these past 5wks. Once again please keep us in your prayers. It could be so much worse, we are so very blessed: none of my children have life threatening diseases, we are all safe, we will be home someday, we are in a city where medicine is available, we have a way to communicate with our family & friends everyday, we serve a risen Savior who is in the world today.
