Dropping Like Flies.

We’re dropping like flies around here. Yesterday, two were cultured for Strep Throat. Tomorrow, I’ll head back to have the third little boy cultured. Bleck. But, a throat culture means you get a chocolate shake. So, they’re ok with it. Once it’s done, that is. We’ve had some hard times over the last couple of days. So hard that it almost feels like we’re under siege. I got an email from a friend reminding me there are times like this, when you know you’re doing right, that things do start to go wrong. And, you just have to stay the course. You have to stand strong.

FPD is doing fine, I think. He lost his cell phone on day two. So, we lost contact. He called today from the cell he purchased for us to use each time we go to Ghana. But, it took different credits than the ones he had bought. So, another two minute phone call today. It was long enough to say hi to GhanaGirl. She’s so happy with her dad. And, long enough to find out that the I-600 is filed and done. They told him he would know in 30 days. That’s great news!

He also told me that he is going to go and get GhanaGirl’s medical appointment done for her visa. I told him I could do it when I got there, he told me he would handle it. I told him it involved a stool sample. He told me no problem. I told you all, being in Ghana makes you not sweat the small stuff, even poop.

  1. Sorry to hear you have sick kids. I was glad to hear the I-600 is filed. I think it is great that he can get the medical done too. That would have saved me 4 days that I could have enjoyed at Luckyhill. Once the embassy had our medical report, our visa was approved in 1 day. Good luck and I hope you all get well soon!!!

  2. Yikes! That’s how it always happens, and it is not fun at all. I hope you are all feeling better and starting to get into the routine of flying solo without FPD. As many times as J has been away, I still feel so off-kilter when he’s not here. The kids feel it too. We are praying for all of you, and for some expeditious processing! Hang tight. Hang on. Feel the love of our Heavenly Father for all of you and let it soothe your soul.
