This week Javi and I turned 33 and 32 (respectively). We agreed not to celebrate for a month until I am feeling better and we can do it right (like enjoy some chocolate cake or something :)). Well, today I went in for an ultrasound at 7 am and things appeared normal, although the tech could not tell me anything. Afterwards, Javi really wanted to go out for breakfast and by that time I was feeling up to it. We happened to go to Denny's because it was close and we didn't even think about it, but when we walked in, there was a sign that said "Free meal on your birthday" so he got a free meal. Oh, also our new niece in Dominican was born on my birthday - so it ended up to be a good week anyway.
Overall, my sickness has been better this week. It has not been as brutal most days and I even had one day that I did not get sick once. I think my fever breaking has helped. I am now 9 weeks, so I know I am not done with the sickness, but I am thankful for it being more manageable.
Still no adoption news. Today marks 1 year since we officially started this process (with Zambia). It looks like the earliest we will travel to Ethiopia now is November because the courts soon close down for rainy season. Some of my adoption friends who also started last year with Zambia and who are switching to Ethiopia, hope to travel then too, so hopefully we can travel together or meet up there.
