my week is filled with arabs and persians and yummy foods, hammentaschen classes and girlscouts, cateerers and musicians,
last 2 weeks, b/c tirzah got the flu thing we had it made her body react again, we have been on the phone w/ UCDavis, and doing all kinds of tests.
the dr informed us of the good news.
her HSP is typical and she is not pursuing chemo treatments at this time.
needle biospy and other more extensive tests may come in april when we visit them next. so keep her in prayer.
my brother's church is full of the sudanese "lost boys". tirzah has prayed for them for years. currently ever mealtime prayer includes pleas for darfur. these wonderful people who she has prayed for, are praying for her now. :-) how cool is that? i wonder at all her life will entail. she is a marvel.
kezzi is taking full advantage of the visitors and learning to write in arabic. she is in heaven. tirzah is immersed in hebrew for her bat mitzvah, and kezzi in arabic. she so wants to be independent but still is too shy to be without tirzah. it is so neat to watch her develope her own passions like her bass playing.
chai survived WWW and met his "hero" a member of the IDF! whose code/camp name is "cheetah". he had such a wonderful time playing and unlike the girls, brought home most of his spending money. i think he spent $3 :-) and it was on food! boys are so different from girls.
jaden-does anyone know how to make a 7 yr old boy still?! it is a good thing he is so loved, for he has been quite a handful lately. he and bella are all over the place! and she wants to do, eat, be whatever he does.
her bruises from last week are almost gone and ready for her to make new ones in her princess dresses.
tali is getting so big! yet she remains a boobist. i have been able to leave her for 3-4 hrs now. she is such a leech! all the others were more than content to go to bubbe's and get rid of mom for awhile-not this one.
she has been teething and so screamy! that lil old ladies stop and tell me how they would dip their lil pinkies in whiskey and let the babies suck on it...and they could at least eat a hot meal. :-D too funny!
