Yesterday evening after we had settled in and it was nearing their first bedtime with us I took them into the bathroom for a bath and as they were undressing(and giggling excitedly about the fishing poll) Joey took off his shirt and
I was ready for his scar from his surgery but what I also saw was this
stuck to his belly button.
I had no idea what that was as he was gesturing to me whether he should take it off before he got into the tub.
Was it stool?
Was it heaps of dried blood?
Did he have some sort of open wound under that bandage?
No stinkin idea.
On the inside I was incredibly concerned for him.
On the outside I was all smiles and acting like it was no big deal.
Anyhow, it turned out to be some sort of potion that they put on that bandage to help with motion sickness for his car ride over from the orphanage.
I guess I should be grateful there wasn't like a dried sea horse or something in his ear drum.
They coulda told me as my doctorate education in Chinese medicine is a little rusty.
