‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

Anya is in the Hospital Again

Bear with me because I am posting from an iPad, which is very slow and the keyboard is not ideal.

I had hoped to post daily from here in Kemerovo, but it has been difficult to even find time to sleep. 

Where do I even begin? Anya is in the hospital again. We had to call an ambulance at dawn yesterday, when we found her temp at 104. It has been up and down since we arrived, and the doctors' suggestions on what might be causing it were bordering on laughable. He suggested it was 'too many blankets'. Then the EMT said the room was stuffy and that was the cause. I'm no doctor, but even I could see that her foot was dangerously swollen and that the problem was not excess blankets or a stuffy room.

The EMT visit would have been funny if we werent so woried for Anya. The paramedic had no tongue depressors and so asked us to find something she could use. They ended up taking her, of course, and we are going to visit her as soon as they allow it.
