Sorry for not posting sooner. I am the one who caught a nasty bug now. I use the word "mung" because it is my made up word for feeling like Yuck! Fortunately, I brought my Zycam Flu Medicne with me and yesterday, I slept the entire day. That, and my host family gave me some Russia Flu Medicne too. I assume it was the same stuff...but, it really helped me feel a lot better. Unfortunately, I could not see Nikolai. Although, I am much better today, they said it was probably best that I didn't go today either. This is how it works.. Nikolai was sick, then he gave it to H.D. (Handsome Devil), then all of the other little kids had it as of Wednesday. So, it was only a matter of time with me kissing on everyone and hugging that I would get it.
Although, it is terrible for me not to see Nikolai...it is ok. Because, tomorrow, he will be with us forever!!!!! So, all I have to do is spend one more day completely getting better so that when B and my sweet little girl arrives, I will be at the airport with open arms and then off to the orphanage. The sad news, I have to say goodbye for good to H.D. tomorrow, which pains me. But, I know that God will take care of him. It was the same way with Alyona, the little girl we hosted from Ukraine over Christmas. It hurt so bad to watch her leave. We pray for her every night to find a home.
I look like a sad little puppy today wanting to get out though. I do believe I will have to get out of the apartment and venture down to the market. It is about 50 degrees F and sunny. A beautiful day. My blogger friends are here in Moscow Brian and Rebecca
we are hoping to get to see each other. But, I can't get them sick either, they are visiting their sweet babies in the orphanage. Our other friends, Stacy and Roy, who have been with me the whole time here are leaving back to Detroit tomorrow. They have completed (well, almost...they are doing the Embassy today) their process and it is back to the good ole US of A. I will miss them terribly. They have been my constant companion here. It is great when you have people here from the same country. It makes things a lot easier.
Anyway, let me get to posting some of those Q&A's.....
