I recieved this short update from Alei on Saturday -
I love it here, but at some points I'm just on the verge of crying. I've had strep, gone through a day of puking, I have like the worst cold I've had all year and my stomach won't stop cramping. It stinks. But the great news is Daniella held down 4 feedings tonight while I was there. Things are looking good for her, now we just have to find some way for her to get treatment. A diagnosis would probably be a good start. Please keep praying for her, she's so beautiful and it's so hard for me to see her like this.
Mom, I played with John and Cassam a lot tonight. They're doing really good for their first week out of the slums. When I met Cassam, I thought he was 1 1/2, maybe 2, but I found out he's 5. He's seriously malnourished, but he already likes to eat a lot, so that's good. I'm going to bed, tomorrow is our day off so we get to go to church and then shop and hang out. On Monday we're going to the Nile river! Night.
I didn't receive an update from Alei at all today, which has me slightly worried. I just pray that it's due to bad internet and not her health. Please say a quick prayer for her and the others that are serving in Uganda.
Also, it's not too late to enter the book give away - just scroll back a few posts and leave a comment.
