Once we received our case number, we made our way to the Honduras Medical Center. On the way in we had to walk down a flight of stairs and Amanda/“Grace”, who was holding Noah, tripped and nearly wiped out! Thankfully she was able to avoid disaster. HaHa. Once we got inside we met with personnel who needed to get Noah’s information and weight. Well, he screamed and cried and didn’t want to get on the scale. So, they had to weigh Mama first and then Noah and Mama together. Then we made our way to the doctor who would give Noah the TB skin test. That was definitely a tough time for Noah. As soon as they started to clean his arm, he began to scream and cry and didn’t stop until they pulled that massive needle outside of his little arm. As soon as it was over though he got a sucker and smiled and told the doctor “Adios!” Overall he did a good job!
On Saturday, we will go back to the HMC to have the TB skin test read. Then, on Tuesday, when the doctor gets back in the office, we will complete the rest of the medical exam. Of course after we finished this horrifying experience, we had to stop and get some coffee for Daddy and cookies for Mama and Noah. Noah left with a cookie in one hand and a sucker in the other! He earned a good snack for being a big boy!
We’re currently back at the hotel waiting for Wheel of Fortune to come on, and then we will live- stream Pinelake’s Wednesday night church service. Mama is going to cook some burritos if the oven gets fixed, and later is the rooftop dance party! That’s where we play music on our phones and have a family dance off. Noah always wins. Ha! We had a good day and are grateful for the progress this week. Thank you so much for the prayers! We know our Father was with us today.
