H1N1 hitting us

Last night Tony began to feel a little bit sick, but we still went about our daily plans. During the night however, he got even worse. He has been running a fever now for the past day in a half. I feel bad because I feel helpless. The Dr. had given us medicine before we left, so I started him on that. We can not go see the babies because he does not want to get them sick. I think he has the flu, maybe the h1n1 because thats going on here really bad right now. To make it worse the weather is 5 degrees today. The snow is over 3 feet in some areas. Cars can not even get to where we are, so to go anywhere we have to walk pretty far to the main road. They said it has not snowed here in ten years. Now it will not stop. Its suppose to snow until Saturday. The snow is also delaying our court date because someone has to get our paperwork to Kiev.
So, we are just locked up in this little apartment not doing much. Emma likes to take a bath every ten minutes because I think she is getting bored. As Im writting I see that the snow is falling hard and fast again. Everywhere you look you see parents pulling there kids on a sled. The snow is very pretty to look at, but not so cool to walk threw. I have fallen twice!!!
I didn't mean for this to sound so negative, but I guess it does. I don't like not being able to see my babies. Elisa needs to see us a lot so she cab get used to us. Well, Im asking all of you to please pray for Tony. He has not moved off the couch in over a day in a half. He needs to be strong for the rest of the time here. So please pray that he gets over this fast and that he feels better. Thanks, Leah


  1. So sorry, Leah! Gosh, you are struggling a bit there, aren't you?? There are so many things to comment on (I'm several days behind reading blogs) but just know that we are thinking of you and praying for you!

    This time WILL pass and you WILL get to bring your babies home! And remember, if Elisa is having this much trouble separating from her caregivers, that means she is attached to them, which is great because it means she CAN attach!! It would be more worrisome if she ran to everyone she met and hugged them, calling them "mama". So it's actually a good thing, though it stinks!!


  2. The weather sounds much like the midwest, Iowa. We have been below zero for a few days and have quite a bit of snow. I have a friend over there adopting also and being used to the weather has never metioned it. Being from Texas I'm sure it seems awful! Hang in there! I have followed your adoption because Arthur stole our hearts when we saw him in the flyer. I am so glad he is finding a home. I will continue to pray for you and your family.

  3. Sorry to hear about Tony's illness...we're be praying for him. Hope your daughter is feeling better too.
