my lyrics are bottomless...

A short update, since I'm very tired and have limited internet time at the cafe! This was another busy week, surprise surprise. We had another late night trip to the hospital with a child who had a severe allergic reaction to something that we haven't been able to figure out and threw up the benadryl I gave her (right on my pajama pants, btw). It was actually a blessing because there had been a worker's strike that day, ie. there were no taxi drivers, ie. no one had transport to the hospital and almost no one was in the emergency room. Also we were supposed to be at a goodbye dinner an hour away and ended up not going because of the strike. The doctor examined her for approximately 15 seconds before diagnosing her with an allergic reaction and prescribing AN ANTIBIOTIC AND TYLENOL. Please see earlier posts to understand the irony of this. I finally just asked him for a benadryl injection, we got it, and went home.
I posted some more pictures!

Hey Sarah! Love the pictures. Sounds like your workload has increased a lot with the volunteers rotating out. We are preying for you every day!

Love,

Dad

Of course I meant "praying" not "preying".
