Rough Day

Our lawyer wasn't prepared. He was supposed to have Monica present in court and failed to let anyone know. The judge scolded him. Therefore the judge has pushed our court date back to next Wednesday. That is actually a blessing because it could have been up to several weeks. We spent the rest of the day getting the necessary medical checks. Health care here is just as expensive as the states but cash only. Bad news Bennett has been diagnosed with siphylis. fortunately it was caught early and 100% treatable. He has been in pain. Siphylis will cause inflammation in bone. Spoke with Dr. Harparvat (pediatrician in states). She is not concerned since it is now being treated. Must be on antibiotic injections twice daily for 9 days (has a port in his hand). We already see difference in total behavior after 2 days. He is also eating twice as much as before. He now weighs 8.8 lbs. and 21 inches long. He is also learning to coo and mimic facial expressions of smiling and sticking tongue out. Keep us in prayer. We are standing on Mark 10:27, 11:23-25, Matt 18:18-20. So I'm asking all to read then speak these words to life out loud. Praise God. Amen.
God Bless.

Thank goodness it was caught early. God has a plan for all of this even if we don't understand at the time. Good thing you were there early!

Hi. I am rejoicing that it is only a week that we have to wait - it could have been a lot longer. We had the papers ready at 11am and were going to have someone bring them but the judge said he would not be there in the afternoon. So we are already for next week. Take care
