Greetings from Greece


Hello from Greece, this is Rhonda saying hello. I made it in yesterday and wanted to give everyone an update. Above is a picture of Nick with Mara right after he was born. Nick is now in the hospital in Thessalaniki. Arthur and I went right from the airport to see Nick in the hospital. He is in an incubator, but was kicking and moving. He even opened his eyes to look at us. He is absolutely beautiful. The doctors plan to do some tests tomorrow and we hope to get the results back in 2-3 days. Then they will have a diagnosis and put together a plan of treatment. We appreciate your prayers very much and know he will be well soon.

Mara is now home and is recuperating quickly. She has an appointment with the local hospital tomorrow to check her incision. Hopefully she will be able to travel up to see Nick later in the week. It is about 3 1/2 hours trip by car.

Will update you as soon as we know more.

Oh how precious! Nickolaos is adorable, and Mara looks so happy too.

Rhonda, I know you are a big help to Mara and her saving grace in this time of trial. Thank you for making yourself available to go to Greece on such short notice.

We love you all and are praying for all of you.

What a curie! He looks great. We're praying that everything works out and that he just needs a little extra time to get adjusted.
