So there's been a change of plans...again. The hospital here will not release the EEG results until their doctor has reviewed them. The doctor is in Australia currently and it's unclear when she will return. That means we can't take the EEG results to Bangkok with us, which means we would have to pretty much start over and re-do everything we've accomplished in the past five days. That means we're not going to Bangkok.
The plan for now is to stay put in Chiang Mai. Sami & I will check into the hospital this afternoon at 4 PM in order to prep him for an 8 AM MRI tomorrow. Then we'll stick around until the doctor comes back from Australia to interpret both the MRI & EEG findings.
Now that we're not going to Bangkok, having to make a border crossing into Laos or Myanmar is looking more probable. So that will be an interesting adventure!
We're hanging in there I guess. The most stressful thing has really just been the constant change in the game plan. I am confident in the care that we're getting here. Sami's condition is stable, so there is no immediate danger to his health in having to wait. There are some nice things about being stranded in Thailand: lots of green, lots of yummy Western food, and an elephant reserve that we would love to take the boys to. Hopefully, I'll be able to post a fun update soon!
Please pray that the doctor will return to Thailand sooner rather than later. Please pray for Kevin as he is fighting a cold and will stay at our hotel tonight by himself to care for Micah. Please pray that we would have stamina to continue to respond well to the challenges at hand. Most of all, please pray that this trial would cause our hearts to trust Father more.
