Yesterday was rough.
Like rough, rough.
Like rough, rough, rough, rou....never mind.
Yesterday was a hard day.
I kinda felt like the floor dropped out beneath me.
My theory.....cuz ya know....I am a cardiologist after all....ahem....not
is that all of this travel and going from here to there, getting car sick, being off of his normal schedule and experiencing a massive shift in increased activity has taken it's toll on his little body.
As in he went from doing relatively fine the first day
to not doing anywhere close to fine by the time their first evening rolled around.
Today is a better day.
Everything has been re-booked, rescheduled and they flew early yesterday morning to GZ which is where they are now.
He looks better today
He seems to feel better today
He had a much better night's sleep last night
and he's got a daddy and brother who are basically giving him anything he wants.
After the craziness of the last 24 hours John hasn't had a chance yet to send me any pictures but I managed to snap this on Skype this morning
He was actually up and out of bed!
Thank you for all of your suggestions about translators.
What the heck did I do before I had a blog posse?
even an offer to order us pizza for dinner from someone I've never met on the other side of the country.
I asked for one random person that spoke Mandarin to meet us on Saturday night at the hospital and instead God gave me the head of a large Chinese Christian Church that is going to personally meet us as we roll in on Saturday and his staff and congregation are going to rotate stopping in to see Joshua and speak with him each day we are there.
Joshua get's Mandarin AND Jesus loving people all in one.
That blows. me. away.
Our change fee with the airline is fully covered.....seriously....thank you.
I am humbled beyond words.
I sent the update and three hours later sat in front of my computer again only to discover that it was fully funded at 110%.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us Ephesians 3:20
Immeasurably more than we can ask or even imagine...
That's the hands and feet of Christ.
I am ever. ever. grateful.
3 days till home.
