Well, we made it back...barely! Our last night in Guate started out great!! We went to dinner with some new friends (Danny, Brittney, and sweet babygirl Kinsey) and then spent the rest of the evening playing in our room. Eli was in such a playful mood and he was making us laugh all evening! Then, it all went downhill! I started feeling a little sick, but did not really think much about it and went to bed. Well, it wasn't long before the chills started, then the sweating and high fever, then the vomitting, then the severe stomach pains...the doctor arrived around 6:30am. Thank goodness the Marriott has a doctor on-call! He gave me a pain medication and some antibiotics. Oh, it was awful! Poor Jason was up all night taking care of me, Eli, running to the pharmacy, and then packing all of our bags to go home. Have I mentioned that I have the BEST husband? For awhile, it was questionable whether we were going to make our flight home, but we did and it was a very long day! I definitely feel a bit better today, but still on the mend.
We had such an amazing trip and have lots to share, including Eli's first haircut!! This boy has a serious head of hair! It grows straight up. I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of money on haircuts and hair product!! His foster mother said she tried to cut it, but he would not sit still. So, we took him to the salon at the Marriott for a little trim.
