a week in review

It's been a crazy 10 days!

We took Igor to a Christmas parade in a neighboring town. It was a wonderful parade but we had no idea the parade members pelted the parade watchers with candy, pencils and all sorts of other items. We had to use Igor's chair as a holding area for all the goodies.

Santa visited our neighborhood. Igor was not afraid to sit on Santa's lap.

Friday night we met the Schmidt's for dinner. I forgot the camera so I don't have any pictures.

Saturday I came down with a stomach virus. Yesterday I went to the doctor's office because I was still sick. They set me up with an IV to get me re-hydrated and provided me with anti-nausea medication. The doctor thinks I'll be well enough to travel on the 26th! UGH!!
This has caused a complete halt in packing and preparing for Ethiopia. I hope to re-start the effort by the end of the week.

This morning I'm weak and dizzy. I "enjoyed" some Jello this morning for breakfast.

My adoption pal Karin is now pain free in heaven. Please keep her family in your prayers.

We may have the option to leave Ethiopia on Dec 31 instead of Jan 2! I will keep you posted on our travel plans.
