Here's a quick update from yesterday:
The girls got decent rest last night, although Katia continued to have seizures throughout the day today. The doctor that has been seeing her has probably been one of the best to evaluate her, and has been very efficient and knowledgeable. Tonight though she went back on that same med to calm things down and they are hopefully resting peacefully by now. Heather got another visit from Helen & R (one of Katia's nurses- both of them off duty) and brought food and treats for her. What a blessing!
Tomorrow starts off with a bang, and at 8:30 am Heather, Helen and Katia head to the US Embassy to have a face to face meeting with the officer. This needed to be an in person visit to prove that she really does exist. There has been grace in it though, as the officer (knowing Katia's fragile condition) permitted the brief meeting to take place in the car rather than having to traipse through the building.
After returning to the hospital, the trio meets with the doctor who is in charge of Katia's care. He will go over x-rays and evaluate her to see if she is fit to travel. A lot hinges on this, as we won't book her ticket till she is well enough to fly and this doctor is the one the Embassy has authorized to make this call.
Please keep us in your prayers. We have already seen much favor that is no doubt in response to your many requests. We will let you know the outcome of tomorrow.
44 Nevertheless He regarded their affliction,
When He heard their cry;
45 And for their sake He remembered His covenant,
And relented according to the multitude of His mercies.
46 He also made them to be pitied
By all those who carried them away captive.
47 Save us, O Lord our God,
And gather us from among the Gentiles,
To give thanks to Your holy name,
To triumph in Your praise.
48 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel
From everlasting to everlasting!
And let all the people say, “Amen!”
Praise the Lord!
