We don't know for sure what is wrong, but we are becoming increasingly concerned for her physical well-being . . . seems she is having some stomach problems possibly that are causing her pain if her stomach is touched in the wrong spot with even the lightest and merest touch.
We are being told that her paperwork (passport) could take another 3 to 5 business days--starting counting on Monday. The USA Embassy closes the last Friday of each month to paperwork, so there is almost no way short of a miracle from God that we can get her home next week. And we aren't even sure about the following week due to hearing that they have some holidays that the USA Embassy is closed for duing that week. We know GOD KNOWS and has it all in His timing. Please pray for wisdom and patience for us, and for discernment about Katya's needs. Legally I am her Mommy, and responsible now for her care and well-being, so pray that God grants me wisdom.
Today Charity and I slept in as long as we could, then ate a leasurely brunch of sausage, grapefruit, and yogurt with bread and butter. After we did some laundry, dishes washing and such, we got a taxi, went to the market (yes, we purchased some more goodies from Alexi's shop, folks !!) and had a grand time. We walked all the way back to our apartment--not sure how long of a walk it was but it felt good to get some good exercise . . . . we needed a day to de-stress after all that has been going on.
Continue to pray please . . . thank you!
