Day 7 updates... embassy status

Just a quick update... we didn't get to the embassy today and we will be pleading our case tomorrow, hopefully they'll allow us to have an embassy appointment on Wednesday, which means a Thursday departure at the very soonest.
 
Today I wound up at the hospital due to a serious case of food poisoning or something.  Nothing like getting sick again less than a week after the last time!  This is by far the worst I've felt in as long as I can remember and hope to be feeling well enough to visit the kids again tomorrow since I couldn't today.  It's so hard to be sick and not have access to the familiar "sick foods" of home... trying to find something I can stomach has been a real challenge.
 
Hopefully tomorrow will bring good news and better health!  Sorry for the short update, I need to lay back down!  :-S

Oh Jesi-- I am so so sorry and I know how hard it is to visit a medical clinic there as that was our first stop in Ethiopia. Thinking of you and praying for you to feel better and get home ASAP!!!
