Thank you all for your prayers; Hetee's feeling much better. We were all able to see an American doctor day before yesterday (my parents have a team here) and he put Hetee on some antacid pills (we actually had some, too). The doctor also gave us some antihistamine for Kenny and Abi, who were having runny noses for quite a while now. Kenny was given antibiotics for what had developed into a sinus infection.

I checked out fine except that the doctor wants me to get some blood work done to check my thyroid. Nothing serious but he said it looked enlarged. I have a few other symptoms that go with hyperthyroidism so we're getting all that looked at on Monday in UB. Hopefully my results will be in in time to show them to the American dr before the team departs on Tuesday.

For those of you who have been following Enkhmaa and Bogi's story, I just wanted to post a quick update. On Sunday we had them over along with another couple, Gana and Uchka, close friends of theirs, for taco night. Bogi had tasted onion rings at our house a while back and he LOVED them. He asked me to make them again so we had them to go with our tacos. Weird combo, but in Mongolia, anything goes.

L-R Gana, Uchka, Hetee, Mel, Enkhmaa, and Bogi

We had a great time eating, laughing and just being together. When they left it was almost 2 am. We all needed the fellowship and were felt really blessed to be able to share our meal and our hearts with them. In a previous post I mentioned that Gana and Uchka recently went through their second miscarriage. It was great to see how God was pouring His love and grace out on both couples.

Oh, and please excuse Hetee and Bogi's scruffiness. They're growing out their hair and goatees for 40 days as a sign of grief for losing little Yalalt.

I am glad that Hetee is getting better and that the children got meds that will help their runny nose. Fellowship is with other believers is wonderful isn't it! Hope you are haveing a great day!
