Dear friends who still check this blog! I'm so sorry it's been a while since we updated but I promise we have a good excuse. Or how about several good excuses. You may remember that when I came home last Wed. am Noah had been running a fever for a few days. Well, he was worse by Saturday so I took him to Urgent Care and thank goodness I did! He tested positive for the Swine Flu, an ear infection and Pneumonia!! They tanked him up on some great antibiotics for the infections (not so much the flu b/c it's viral). They told us that he would be contagious until all of his symptoms are gone. Today (Tuesday) seems to be the first day that he really feels better. Also, on Friday I got some sort of stomach bug (or flu) and have been sick with it. I too feel better today. Praise God.
So what's going on in Ukraine you say??? Same ole Same Ole. Poor Mike is still stuck there by himself. He has been down and lonely the last several days I've spoken with him but today he went to a small group meeting a missionary couple we met there had at their home and had a wonderful time!! He will be going to a mission tomorrow with them that ministers to teen orphans. God is so good. He knows exactly what we need when we need it.
Laurel feels A LOT better from her ear infection and is back to her happy self. The 10 day waiting period is officially up on Friday the 11th but because of paperwork restricitions Mike probably won't get custody of her until Monday. Then he waits for the Passport 4-5 days and when he gets that he can go back to Kiev for about 2 days for the Visa and Medical check. Then hopefully HOME!! Please pray all will go smoothly!
