The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

I finally feel normal again. I've had more energy each day of this past week and I can't tell you how good that feels! The diagnosis???............................I contracted Hepatitis A on my last trip to Guatemala. So, a word to the wise (from someone who learned the hard way) if you plan on visiting Guatemala and you haven't had your Hep A vaccine..............GET IT!!! My Dr said we didn't need any shots and I just went with that, instead of doing my own investigation. I've read the older you are, the more severe the symptoms. Since I'm nearing "antique" status, it was pretty rough. But that's all behind me now. Praise the Lord, I feel good again!

There's nothing to report on Nola. We're still waiting to hear if our lawyer has been able to get a meeting with the judge.

I'll keep you posted.

Oh bummer! I am glad, though, that you were able to figure out what it was!!

We are praying for the lawyer to be able to make some progress with the judge!

I hope and pray you feel better each and everyday!!

I really hope you get some good news. I am heartsick over the recent legal development.

Steph said...

Holy Cow! That is awful! I am so glad you are feeling better and they figured out what it was!

I admit, I was one of those anal people who made sure we had all the vaccines!

Michelle said...

Oh My I am so sorry you had to go through that but so glad you are feeling better.

Oh my WORD! HEP A on top of everything else!

I'm sure glad we all had our shots before we traveled. YUCK!

Praying for you.
