i think we're hopefully on the upswing with emily's progress.
randy has been fantastic keeping us updated on her progress.
and while i hope i'm not guilty of over dramatizing the event
or minimizing a miracle ( which clearly is the worse of the two)
her appearance the next day sounded much much better
& she's continued to improve.
i'm sure we'll hear more details when she comes home
but i truly believe the Lord protected her
& has kept her on the healing path.
randy called yesterday & told me the Lord had totally done another
really cool thing.
moments before he was heading out to take emi to the hospital sunday morning
one of our friends and former neighbors
walks in to where they were having a bible study.
dr. keller is in peru on a medical mission trip
& came by to visit our team before heading back to the states.
he was able to bring some much need antibiotics to one of the kids
& take a look at em's foot.
dr. keller is also the physician for our football team
so he obviously sees injuries like this all the time.
once i posted, i received a call from one of the nurses who was
with dr. keller who gave me a great update.
her ankle is still quite swollen
with one specific area of tenderness.
there was a little more concern when the doctor heard the direction she fell.
however he felt while there could be a hairline fracture
even if they xrayed her in Lima
they would xray her when she got back in the states.
she is on strict order to stay off it completely until they return
but he felt it was not a displaced fracture but might possibly a hairline fx.
as long as he completely keeps off it & keeps it wrapped,
he re-enforced it well
the doctor felt she would be safe, even with a fracture
to keep it immobilized until she returns home.
so, i'll schedule her an appointment & we'll keep it
she is completely better next friday.
so please continue to pray.
they are still trying to locate some crutches for her
this final leg of the trip
is much more chill than the first part.
i think they're done with the majority of the hiking, etc.
they are working in a poor section in Lima
in the orphanages.
we were able to skype with emily saturday night
& her spirits were much higher than any other time.
i know she's homesick
but i was thrilled to hear her voice
& hear how happy she sounded!!
she gave me strict orders to not quote her in my facebook updates anymore.
which reminds me, i need to go back & look as i don't remember quoting her at all!
she'll probably kill me for posting these screen captures
but i can't resist!
another yay moment
was that emi was able to go see a part of Peru
that sounds amazing.
here's randy's description=
minus the injury, i'd love to be one of my girls this week.
emily is in the midst of a total lifechanger, i'm sure.
madi is loving life whipping around in her new ride.
& savannah is off for 9 days on a trip she & bailey have planned for months.
they are off to orlando and then down to west palm.
( bailey has friends and family there and her brother is playing in a tournament).
my jealousy really kicked in to overdrive
upon finding out they were actually in Harry Potter World
for the one year anniversary.
they were even included in the video promo!
screen capture time take 2!
a few pics from smk's phone while at Dr Seuss Land.
jamie, this one is for you!
enjoying a wonderful butterbeer
which if you're not an HP fan, it's nonalcoholic.
i love their faces after the scary ride!
ok, i'm clearly pms
because i choke up everytime i think of emi being gone for so long...
i choked up today when i dropped caroline off at writers camp. it's only 3 hours long. for 5 days. but when we left her, she came back out to hug dan & me, one more time....
and i also choked up when i saw how excited they were in the following video.
it's only a minute or two long and they're near the end.
besides my madi, they are the biggest HP fanatics i know.
so this was indeed a thriller moment for them!
