With Melonnie in the states – I have been responsible for the daily activities of our 80 member Eye Team! It’s been a busy few days! The eye team has worked so hard non-stop……which means the rest of us have too!!
Yesterday felt like one of those days that was never going to end. I truly wanted to pull my hair out! It was 11pm before I made it back to my bedroom. It started at 6:00am when there was no water in the surgery center. Rosie has had horrible tooth pain since Saturday. They decided they would put her to sleep yesterday – under general anesthesia – and pull it. Not only did God provide us with a dentist on this team but also a pediatric anesthetist! Rosie was nervous all day but it went really well.
My brother flew home to have back surgery. He was going to fly to Nebraska to have it done there. However the trip home was too hard on him. He ended up in the ER in Kentucky. He’s on pain medication right now. I’m not sure yet when his surgery will be. Please pray for him.
Mikela’s biological mom decided to stop by yesterday. Every time she gets hungry she decides to use Mikela as leverage. She has no relationship with her daughter. But from time to time she drops by – wanting money. She always threatens if we don’t help her then she’s going to take us to court and say we stole her daughter. I spent probably an hour and a half talking with her and Magdala – trying to make her understand that I don’t play games.
We laid the twins down for their nap. When I came back upstairs from the drama with Mikela’s mom – I heard Asher crying. Apparently he fell out of his crib. We had lowered the bed – I don’t understand how he fell out. I have checked him all over – and I don’t see any bruises. But I don’t think he has acted right today. I’m sure it’s all in my head …
We are still fighting to purchase the land in the Mole. We thought this would be done yesterday but it’s been one thing after another. Wisley is heading there tomorrow with hopes of finalizing the purchase and renting the house we will need for our first year there. Please pray that we can finish this up tomorrow.
All this to say…..I am completely exhausted.
