At the Airport

Hi fellow Martin friends and stalkers of Sonia's blog! This is her friend, Christina. I just received a phone call from Sonia and she wanted me to hack into her blog and give y'all an update about what is happening. If you're anything like me you've been hitting refresh on your computer all day hoping for a new post. ;-) So the following is everything she told me...except I've included commas, periods, and spaces since Sonia was so excited and talking really fast! 

Sonia and the boys are at the airport right now! Joshua did great on the flight from Hong Kong to Detroit. Praise God! (Don't know about you, but I was a wee bit worried about that flight.) They will be landing about 6 tonight. (Right as I'm typing this!!)  She is hopeful the last flight went well enough that she'll be able to take him to the hospital herself and not by ambulance.

The hospital called Sonia and they are ready and waiting for JJ's arrival. To Sonia's surprise they are going to be doing an Echo and Chest X-ray tonight. Those tests will give them some answers but there will be more needed that they will do tomorrow or on Monday.

She's going to keep me updated through the night. They have a friend taking pictures at the airport and she's going to have that person send me those pics so I can post them for you all to see

Lucky for you my husband is home and was able to help me battle getting these pictures uploaded for you! More to come later!! I don't have to tell you because they have amazing friends, but keep praying!

I'd translate for you but the only mandarin I know is oranges.
