visa in hand.

I am here and doing good.  Landed early and got a phone call that the visa was in hand.  I literally said outloud “praise you Jesus” as I was walking down the steps of the plane.


Story is sick.  Doing better but not good.  Our plan is to watch her and get her home soon and possibly to the doctor when we get home Friday night.  She has some weird symptoms and I’m sure as soon as I walk into the hospital with a sick baby from a 3rd world country they will rush her back and begin the run down on tests!


One thing that is super cool is that when Licia & Zach showed up to the guest house with Story when she saw me she smiled.  It was a sad smile, but none the less  it was a smile from my baby b/c she saw me and knew me.


We had a blow out diaper tonight, so I’m begging Jesus to not let that happen tomorrow on the plane!!!


I have her passport with Visa attached & all my paperwork that I need to get through customs.


If all goes well I should arrive in Austin at 7:10 tomorrow night.  Come out and visit if you want, but know that Story is not feeling well, so she might look sad!  Also we’re not going to be passing her around so we can bond well.  If you come, you will see one happy mamma!!!
