I can only sit back in amazement at God. I prayed DAYS before we left that God would cover Joe and I with a protection for health issues while we were in China. I just did not want to get sick again - that was awful! Little did I know - I was praying for more than just illness. When my leg doubled it's size the night we got home - I called and got in the next day - only to find out that I had a blood clot. According to the doctor, I got it on the way there - that was what was causing all of my leg pain in China. And he said I should be MOST grateful that it came to nothing more while we were there. When I sat and thought about it - I have to agree, I could have ended up in a hospital in China somewhere, but no, God allowed it to stay put until I got home and then I could go in and get it taken care of. It is not a MAJOR clot - just in a minor spot where they don't expect it to be a problem. I have to elevate my leg, add heat, and take 800 mg of Ibuprofen TOO many times a day! But for that I am extremely grateful! SO - that explains why I haven't posted since we got home. We were scared we might miss our first plane in China - but that was another God-thing - everyone in our group made it to the plane and off we went! Jada did great on the planes too - many hours were spent with two plastic cups - she sure does entertain herself well!
Our kids, Becky's Dad and Mom, and our friends were waiting to meet us at the airport - what a fun treat! It was great to see them all!I think Jada wondered what was up though - with all of those kids staring at her!!! Welcome to your new world, Jada!We are adjusting - Mom is sitting with her leg up - or trying to anyway :). We are experiencing MAJOR issues with an older little one that thinks Mom is hard to share and is a bit frustrated that this new little sister isn't all she thought! But we will get there - it just takes time - and we have that! Keep praying for our adjustment and my crazy leg - we will make it - just let us get past this HORRIBLE jet lag!
