Enfermedades Abound!!

We seem to have a virus going around here!  There have been 7 cases of kids and teachers getting sick - vomiting and diarrhea.  I was one of the un-lucky ones, all night Sunday night and Monday I suffered, but I am feeling much better now. 

On Tuesday, when Ethan began feeling bad, we just assumed that it was The Virus, but he didn't have the same symptoms, so we took him into town to the children's hospital.  In the end, they found it was an appendicitis!  They operated and gave his move the appendix in a  jar! (She has to take it to the lab tomorrow.)  I am writing from the hospital room, where finally he is sleeping a bit.   For those that don't know, Ethan is part of the Brink family, the Americans here for 8 months.  So, as you can imagine, things are quite scary right now, no one speaks English (except the surgeon!) and they have different ways of treating sicknesses.  Pray for the Brinks, pray that they can continue to trust in the Lord and that Ethan will continue to improve and recover from this surgery.
