7 weeks waiting and feeling ill

today marks 7 weeks of Mahlet's TB sputum culture, we passed court may 15th, to say this has been stressful is an understatement, i'm really thinking i have an ulcer at this point! hopefully we will know her results soon, at the latest i believe it will be aug 13th, and then traveling the week of aug 24th, we are just hoping and praying she is well, on a good note my youngest 3 are going to kanakuk kamp, yay and we are going to try and relax a bit before school starts up again, enjoy the rest of your summer, i'll post when we hear our news, thanks again for praying her home, this is my daughter patiently waiting for good news of her sister

we are barely still here and still waiting

well we are still waiting, no word yet, it has been 5 and a half weeks of waiting since they called the day before we were supposed to travel,it has been very depressing and i have been trying to understand all of this,i am trying to rest in HIM and that He is in control, we will probably hear about her sputum result week 9, mid august, if it is neg i assume we travel soon after, if it is positive she stays for about a year more, i'm sure i will not have a nervous breakdown... sure... so we would love any pray warriors out there to pray for a negative sputum for our little 4 year old daughter mahlet who knew we were coming for her and we still haven't showed up, thank you

happy late 4th of july!

we spent the day hanging out with our kiddos and all their friends, we got up early to road bike which we love so we could come home and babysit teenage boys with lots and lots of fireworks, no one got hurt, which is great news, however we could not ignore our heavy hearts, as we are always thinking of our little girl far far away, hoping and praying she is TB free, and will come home soon, hopefully in august....
