Our Little Books
After lunch, we were beginning to head out of Tegucigalpa when on a whim Alicia asked me to call the doctor at the Medical center that was recommended to us. I called and asked for someone that spoke English. By this point, Carlos had found his way to the Medical Center and was parked right in front of the entrance. A woman who spoke excellent English answered and was very helpful. She said that the children needed TB tests and that if we could get to the Medical Center, they would be able to get that done today...I said we would be there shortly. They were very helpful and we were able to get the TB test done. In the midst of all of this, we had to get more pictures of the children for different appointments, and we still didn't get the right wallet size pictures. We're off by a few centimeters. We got back to the house around close to 6pm...it was a very long day, and we are all exhausted.
When our lawyer told us last week that we would not be home before Easter, she had told us that we would not be getting passports until Wednesday, and passports were needed to begin the Medical tests, so everything is moving much faster that she had expected. We are still in conversation with the Embassy for scheduling the exit interview, and there is some confusion on some documentation, but we do know that we will return to the Medical Center on Thursday for the reading of the TB test, and again on Friday for the children's physicals. The other good news we received tonight is that the Embassy will be open for the first half of next week, so we may still be able to get our exit interview early next week and fly home before Easter. We still expect to be here until the following week, but God is opening doors that we did not foresee. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Well...as I said, it was a long day and I have already made this post too long, so good night!
