A quick update on Elsie Mae: she's still sick, although we do see some moments of improvement. She's not a "good" patient. Some of our kids, when they are sick, lay around, ask for help when they need it, sleep a lot and watch and rewatch their favorite videos and maybe request favorite foods and drinks. Not Elsie Mae. Personally, I've decided her goal is to make someone else feel just as miserable as she does (and, if you've ever suffered from intestinal amoebas or a UTI - try both at the same time... she does feel rotten), and she's determined that Mom is her most likely victim. We are hoping to have some lab results within the next few days to see if we need to try different medications and may also need to start a different, even less friendly treatment for the amoebas in the next few days; whatever critters she's got in her system appear to be of the more stubborn variety.
Many of you have let us know that you've been praying for her... please continue to do so, as "it ain't over yet." We'd love to see her strong, healthy and with a little reserve on her little body before we make the big move back for our home assignment.
And now back to my regularly scheduled programming, at least for this post. I took these photos of Jonathan several weeks back, after our colleague said one afternoon, "Every time I see him in that outfit, I think he looks just like __________________"
We had to agree, especially once you add the bat (or club, as Jonathan likes to call it).
Any ideas who I'm talking about?Scroll on down to find out... and let us know what you think... if you agree or disagree!
I just need to find him a little hat and a few bones!
