Update from Deutschland

Well, things have definitely improved since last I wrote. I took the kids to the dr. and Jonah has RSV, but he's doing better. We've got him using an inhaler and on some other meds and the German docters took great care of him. The pinkeye is cleared up as well so we're thankful for that. Jake got here after major problems, but still does not have his bags. The weather in Paris and Frankfurt have been absolutely horrible and the airlines are experiencing serious problems. We've got lots of presents in Jake's bag, so that's pretty lame, but we're just glad that he's here!! Yesterday, we went to Rudesdheim and had a wonderful time. We had heisse schokolade (hot chocolate) pommes frites (french fries)in an adorable little restaurant. We took the bus there and the train back and the kids were pretty excited about taking the train. Anyway, today is Christmas Eve and we've got lots of fun things planned. I'm so thankful the kids are feeling better and hope it continues. Our little nephew Clark had the flu for the past few days but seems to be doing better too so we're really grateful about that.
As far as how I'm feeling, I'm feeling pretty good. My legs are extremely bruised, front and back, up and down, I think as a result of being on two different blood thinners. I'm feeling a little dizzy when I wake up, my necks bugging me just a little bit, and my mind feels a little spacey. But I realize that I have not been eating well, sleeping well, or drinking enough water. SO I expect to feel much better when I get home, sleep in my bed, get back to eating healthfully, etc.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas!!!
