She has been sick for almost 2 weeks now. We think she has malaria, even though she tested negative here in Haiti. But a doctor here told us that the malaria tests here in Haiti only show one type of malaria, and several clinics don’t even know how to read the blood tests accurately.
So, Maria is flying out tomorrow morning with Susana back to the states. She will take her to Miami Children’s Hospital as soon as she lands. Isabela and I are staying behind since it is too costly for all of us to fly.
Susana had up and down fever for almost 2 weeks, although she hasn’t had a fever now in a few days. But she is extremely lethargic. She cries whenever she is asked to get up and walk. All she has been doing is laying down on the bed all day and watching movies. She doesn’t want to eat or drink, even though we make sure that she does both. She has lost a lot of weight which concerns us since she is tiny to begin with. She doesn’t seem to be in much pain, but rather just is extremely lethargic.
So, we think it is best at this point that she gets better medical care and diagnosis. Please pray that the doctors are able to find out what is wrong and that it is nothing serious. Our little Susana needs lots of prayers. Pray for safe travel for her and Maria. Pray for Daddy and Isabela who will stay behind. Pray that God is glorified in this whole situation. Thank you all so much!
