On this super hot day, i'll just drop in to let everybody know that my friend is having a great giveaway on her blog. http://myplaceofpeace.blogspot.com/2009/11/two-of-my-favorite-things-for-you.html
I have known Shilo for only a few short months, but she has become a great friend to me, and she makes the best lattes in Paraguay.
Another piece of good news: I had to get a mammogram done a few weeks ago, because of a lump. I got the results back, after 6 weeks wait, and it's nothing to worry about. Just a slight infection where the ribs are attached to the breast bone. I was so relieved to hear the news!
We will be going to Asuncion on November 15th to see the specialist for Brianna. She needs to have a check-up done, to see if the medication is working. Brianna, our 8 year old, had a seizure in December last year, which we thought was a fever convulsion. She needs to take her medication for at least 2 years and have regular check-ups throughout this time.
My dear Aunt Irene passed away on Saturday. She was such a wonderful lady, always smiling, even in the last weeks of her painful journey with cancer. Please pray for my uncle, his 2 sons and their families.
To everybody in the Chaco reading this: let's not give up hope that it will rain soon.
