We were disappointed today to get to the baby house and find out that Kai was still sick. They wouldn't let us visit with him all day today. Apparently, he has the virus that has been running through the baby house - his fever was 38 C (which is 100.7 F ). His caregiver held him up so we could see him and wave to him - but that was as close as we got. We're keeping our fingers crossed that we'll have a chance to visit with him tomorrow.
Sierra is almost back to normal. She gets very excited to see us and has a lot of energy in the morning. We had our visits today in the Music Room (where we saw the toddler New Years play last week). It is a much bigger room with hard wood floors and much cooler. It was nice to spread out for a change. We did watch Sierra carefully so she didn't do a face plant on the floor (since there was no real padding on the floor in this room).
Our only real excitement today was when Sierra bit her own thumb and started wailing. Hopefully the "cause and effect" principal sets in and she doesn't do it again - if not, she'll continue to learn the hard way.
We did get to meet with the doctor today regarding Kai and Sierra's medical history. As expected, it's very sketchy but we got what we could and the children are in good health (aside from the crud going around). They get weighed every 10 days so we should have updated weights for them tomorrow.
Court is in two days so we have our meeting tomorrow night with Olga and Assia to prep. We're getting close to the end of our days in Uralsk, so we'll do the last of our running around this week.
A good, but routine day...
