Ministry of a baby

I read the following from Dr. Lutzer's book "One Minute After You
Die", today, that I thought was very appropriate and I will quote it here.

"The death of a child seems like a mockery since God is taking a life before he has the joy of accomplishment. It is like putting a period before the end of a sentence. But the child's life can fulfill the will of God. Though we do not understand it, that little one has finished the work that God has given him to do. Though now in heaven, the little one continues his ministry in the lives of parents and relatives.
Jim Elliot, who himself was killed at a young age while doing missionary work among the Auca Indians, said "God is peopling Heaven; why should he limit himself to old people?"

A friend sent this in an e-mail today... I loved this, and was encouraged by it, what a cool reminder! ...and since I don't have much time to write I'm just copy and pasting it. Hopefully I'll have a chance to share about some of this stuff sometime soon.

Helpless without HIM,

:) Amy Peru since 2001 ~ Proud mammy of 4,was soon-to-be 5 chillins, but one's in heaven :)
PS. Prayer Requests:
SAFETY IN TRAVEL - We fly tomorrow! Tuesday August 8 from 10am - 9pm and then drive for a couple hours Aug.9. From there, August 10-12 we drive LOTS of hours from Iowa to Houston, Texas.
CONTINUING COMFORT - We are all doing fine, but in the midst of all this change it takes a conscious effort to maintain our heaven-focused perspective.

We love the Lord SO much and are SO totally thankful for HIS loving kindness!! Praise HIS name! However could we do anything without his grace and strength?!

Monday, August 7, 2006 - Thank You...

for sharing that quote. We have 5 children...3 still living and 2 really living in Heaven. Our fourth child Sam, was born still at 19 weeks...our fifth child Gus, went to Heaven when he was 16 mos. this past May 31st. Gus was awaiting a liver/small bowel transplant but his body just gave out. Like you all, we are terribly sad that we have to wait to really get to know these little fellows but we rejoice because we know where they are and who they are with!! Please know that your family will be in our prayers!


Monday, August 7, 2006 - I will be praying

I just started reading your blog a couple weeks ago, so you don't even know me. But I wanted to let you know how sorry I am to read your sad news, and that I'm praying that our LORD continues to comfort you and your family.

Sorry about your loss but Heaven's gain. Thank you for sharing the quote also. And thank you for sharing of yourself with us. I lost my first, losing a fallopian tube in the process but the Lord then blessed me with four more even with it being harder to get preg. Blessings.

Thank you so much for posting this. I have had 4 miscarriages myself and I know that God is preparing a nursery full of my precious babies in heaven! This quote that you posted is so comforting, I copied it and will probably read it every day! I have since had a healthy, full-term baby girl. God is so good!

I love your site, I'll visit often! :0) Brandi

The Lord knows the plans he has for us...

Well, I haven't written forever, this has been my longest absence yet. I'm really sorry, but when I explain, I'm sure you'll understand why...

My husband was gone for a week.

We were travelling for a week.

We've been moving for a week.

And the very saddest of all and the reason I haven't been able to write for the last week is, that our fifth baby was born on Tuesday, August 1st. He is in heaven with Jesus as I was only 17 weeks along. We are all doing fine. All the kids are/were very sad, and we're all working through those sad feelings, but we all KNOW that God is in control. Jesus took our baby to be with Him, and we will have to wait to know him, that's sad news, but it's okay.

We are truly glad the Lord has been with us thus far and will continue to be our strength and comfort through the coming days/weeks/months. :) We have SO felt his presence with us and can see his loving guiding hand through the whole thing.

This is not an eloquent post, just enough to let you all know what is happening and that I am in fact still alive.

We are still in Lima, Peru. Our house is packed up and in storage. We made it! Now we are here until Tuesday getting various things done before we leave the country, but for the most part we are able to relax a little bit after our trying time in the last weeks and before our busy-ness over the next few weeks. I'll try to update as we go.

We appreciate your prayers for us during this time.


Amy Peru since 2001 ~ Proud mammy of 4, was soon-to-be 5 chillins - but our fifth is in heaven now.

PS. I got this in my e-mail box today (very timely, I'd say). I plan to comment on it eventually:

By Elisabeth Elliot

Repeatedly I am asked variations of this question: Did the Lord comfort you or were you sometimes lonely or sad? It is not an either-or thing. If I had not been lonely and sad at times, how could I have needed, received, or appreciated comfort? It is the sick who need the physician, the thirsty who need water. This is why Paul not only did not deplore his weaknesses, he "gloried" in them, for they provided the very occasions for his appropriating divine help and strength.

It was in prison that Joseph knew the presence of the Lord.

It was in the lion's den that Daniel's faith was proved.

It was in the furnace that Daniel's three friends found themselves accompanied by a fourth.

We have plenty of "proof texts"--but in order to experience their truth we have to be placed in "proof contexts." The prison, the lion's den, the furnace are where we are shown the realities, incontestably and forever.

It is sooo good to see you check in! I've wanted to go to Lima since I was in fourth grade and learned about the mural of "The Last Supper" in which every person is of a different nationality, and they're eating roast guinea pig. Go enjoy it in my stead and tell us all about it!

So sorry to learn of your loss. (((((HUGS))))) sandi

We are so thankful that you are in the very best hands. God is so faithful. It is beyond my comprehension how people cope without Him!

It was so good to hear your voice and talk to you. We are proud of all of you and certainly will be happy when we can get our hugs in person. As we shared on the phone, we were saddened by the news of Baby Tuttle #5 going home to be with Jesus. However, knowing where he is comforts us very much.

Wanna see my house from space?!

I cannot believe it! I found Cajamarca from space!

Here's the sattelite view of our city:

Click here for Google's sattelite map of Cajamarca!

or copy and paste this:,-78.500576&spn=0.079029,0.214233&t=h&om=1

And I can see **our house on this one!!!!

Click here to see our little plaza, neighborhood and house!!

or copy and paste this:,-78.511037&spn=0.00247,0.006695

**Right in the middle of the map is a diagonal light grey rectangle with a circle in the middle, that is the Plazuela Miquel Grau where my kids play street soccer EVERY day! It is right across the street from our house. The orange rectangular rooftop to the right bottom side directly across the street is MY HOUSE!

If you zoom out a little you'll see how there is just absolutely nothing around us except brown, green mountains!

I still cannot believe it! I feel like this is the most amazing thing! First of all that you can see my house from space... second of all that I actually found it on the sattelite - 'twas no easy task!

Wow now people can see where you live and your going to move again so it will be history. If you would google all the places you have lived you could do a geography lesson for the kids or would it be history ? Google has improved a lot lately. We were doing the Cajmarca thing a while ago but not in this good of detail. I think I see you hanging clothes on the roof clothes line.

Pretty cool, huh?

And why did you doubt yourself even for a minute? Just because you feel like you're in the boonies sometimes, doesn't mean that you don't exist, silly!

Whenever I see pics like that, I always wonder what viewpoint God prefers to see things...zoomed in, zoomed out, black/white, color, inside out, who knows?!

Yup, these are the weird thoughts I have BEFORE my morning cup of coffee!

I am also surprised that the folks here think it so strange to have more than 2 children. I knew Europe was that way, but it looks as if the whole world is moving that way-except for homeschoolers.

I think you asked about vintage graphics. I don't use vintage very much but I find most of my pictures by googling. Usually I get them from online art museums such as

I like your pink look. I have IE browser and your right side bar is trailing off my screen so that I can't read part of it. Maybe you could tweak a little.

Survey of Fisher Academy Int'l Teaching Home

1) Are you the worst homeschool teacher you know?

Or do you feel pretty confident in what you are doing?

On a scale of 1-10, I think I'm probably about average. Although I'm strong in some areas: organization and creativity and some others; I am also keenly aware of my weaknesses: self-discipline and patience. So, I think I'll put myself about here:


2) What do you work on the most in your 'classroom'?

Academics or Character Training?

We tend to focus on both, I'm not sure how one would do only one or the other as behavioral issues ALWAYS come up for us while we are doing school. However, I would say that we try to focus on academic but are interrupted so often with behavioral issues that we end up spending half our time on that.

3) What is your chosen method of Homeschooling-- and are you happy

with what you're doing? Charlotte Mason-- Classical-- Textbook--

Unschooling-- Unit Study-- Car Schooling-- Ecclectic -- or something else?
We LOVE what we're doing... Ambleside Online. AO is a Charlotte Mason based online FREE curriculum.

4) How many kids are you homeschooling right now?

We are homeschooling 2 boys (7&8) We teach them everything at the same level at this point. Our 3 1/2 prettypinkprincess is beginning to take interest in preschool type things, but we have not officially started anything with her.

5) Were you homeschooled as a kid?

Nope. Too bad, though. I often asked to be homeschooled.

6) When did you first learn about 'homeschooling' and what was your

initial reaction? (horror? were you skeptical? love at first sight?)

When I was growing up, I had a friend who was homeschooled. I thought it was a little strange, but I was always jealous of all the COOL stuff they had in their schoolroom - rubber stamps, cool pens, card-making stuff, etc. This was my first exposure.

After high school, when I studied to become a professional nanny and realized what it meant to have someone else raise your children, I became anti-daycare and very soon anti-anyone who takes place of mom and dad... as far as what I would do with my own family that is. I vowed to do the best I could with God's help to raise my own future children - not sub them out to anyone. I still didn't have the specific conviction about homeschooling per se, but that was in the works.

When Micah and I came to Peru, I was horrified at the level of education offered in Peru (where we were at at the time in the jungle), even at a private level and we decided together that homeschooling would be our only option. This was new to me, but since I'd been working with my boys then 2 1/2 and 1 1/2 since they were born, it didn't seem that foreign of an idea. I mean I'd taught them a lot since they were born... how hard could it be, right?! hehehehe...

We've come to points where we've really had to discuss it and weigh the pros and cons because of ministry. Homeschooling keeps me at home and so we have had to decide whether to keep on several times. I am not able to really be involved in ministry outside the home as some missionary wives choose to be. But, we both know in our hearts that homeschooling is the very best and as long as God makes it possible we will always choose HOME.

(wow. That there narration almost brings tears to my eyes!)

So, there you have it. The hows and whys of our homeschool in a nutshell. Questions courtesy of JenIG's contest.

Amen! I (personally) think that a woman's family- raising her children and supporting her husband- is such an amazing ministry. I've known way too many kids who have been shipwrecked spiritually because both parents gave their best to ministry and the kids got the scraps.
Erik and I got married with the intention of going overseas in the next year or two (until he got cancer) and we both felt strongly that my ministry would be our family and having people in our home as I was able. Well, I guess that's my ministry here in the States too!
Oh, we're in Oregon by the way. It's our good friends who are in Germany. We hope to go overseas somewhere at some point, but not sure where or when.
I'll stay posted for your contest. If it was a llama I'd do anything to win!

We have just this week left before my hubby leaves for two weeks to Trujillo and then just a few days after that before we are moving. We hope to be packed up before he goes.

I hopped over here from nsremom's blog to see your big announcement.
Congrats on the new addition. As a mother of five I can *so* relate to some of the reactions to your "big" family.
I thought our family was big until I became a part of the FIAR message board. 5 is a small number over there.
So you are in Peru...
How wonderful. I am so blessed by your family's work for the Lord.
We are about to begin a unit study on Peru. Any chance you could send us a postcard before you move on?

He's gone!

Only a few hours ago, my Beloved left for one day and two nights.

The nights are what get me, because I don't look forward to sleeping alone (although many times I don't have to, my bed is often invaded in the dark hours of the night by little friendlies). The days sometimes drag by, but they are always full of the expected unexpected of having four littles around.

He is travelling to Trujillo to put in place some very important preparations for the Bible Institute that is coming up in just over a week. I'll have to blog about that one of these days soon.

Next week will be our last week of our first year using Ambleside Online! It has really been so perfectly fitted to our family's situation this year, and seems to be something we will continue to enjoy as we learn to implement it better.

We are finishing up the last chapters of Seabird by Holling. The boys are totally enjoying Viking Tales and Our Island Story. Tomorrow is history focus day, and we're going to look at Alfred the Great, as Island story and Trial and Triumph and STOW all are coinciding just now.

The boys especially love Nature Study which doubles as science when they can persuade me into doing that with them... most of the time it just consists of them playing outside observing/capturing/torturing the plants and bugs and birds around our yard and neighborhood park, but occasionally they talk me into a directed study, which is always very interesting and enlightening for us all. We use Ann Comstock's Handbook of Nature Study, which really is a gem of a resource. I know nothing about plants... :) Recently I was amazed/apalled that I don't even remember the parts of a plant... how humbling. I mean, I know petal, stem, leaf. But, I had NO idea what a petriole is! For anyone else as ignorant as I am -

Petriole: A petriole is a stalk of a leaf that joins the leaf to a node on the stem.

Now, you know! :)

I am just about finished with Pastor Hsi, by Mrs. Howard Taylor. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone wanting to know how God can use a life surrendered to Him and how God can lead a person genuinely waiting on Him.

AMAZING. It also is an excellent resource for perspective on method in ministry and missions, especially concerning the role of missionary vs. native workers and foreign funds vs. self-supported work.

Okay, long blog. It seems I am only postponing the inevitable... sleeping alone.

I have to get myself REALLY tired so I'll be able to fall asleep quickly! Consequently, I think I'm there now. Goodnight :)

Posted by Jimmie (
Waa waaa... I love that dessert too! You can make that??? I can't find half of those ingredients here! Cooking western foods can be a real chore. Last night we had soft tacos. I was thinking of all the different places I had to shop to get all the ingredients -- a total of five different shops! And I made homemade tortillas and homemade sour cream. And the taco spice was brought in from America! What a pain! But it was delicious! Even though we had mozarrella cheese instead of cheddar. :-) Can't find cheddar here. Sigh.... it's a lot easier to just eat Chinese style. But we sure do miss home foods after a while.

Thursday, July 6, 2006 - NO, I can't make it here! There's no cool whip! :(

Posted by amada (
I just LOVE it and found it on the internet and want to put it in my book because we'll be back where I can buy Coolwhip and pretzels soon! ;)

Jimmie, I can sympathize... only just recently (last 4 months) we can buy tortillas here and sour cream (granted they aren't exactly the same, but...) I used to make my own tortillas (WAY too much work) and we went without sour cream... how do you make that?! And I always have to go to lots of places to round everything up as well. Oh the woes! But every now and then it IS worth the trouble! I've become very creative and found lots of things I can make from scratch that I never would have known was possible.

All that to say, I just drooled over the recipe when I found it because I'd forgotten about the delicious-ness of that dessert! But I'll have to wait to have it of course. Only one more month :)

Reactions to FIVE

I thought I'd give a summary of how people so far are responding to our announcement of the FIFTH baby being on the way.

Peruvians - "STOP!!! You MUST NOT have any more children! You have enough!!" or with a look of compassion toward me, they scold my husband for being abusive by "making me" have more children...

Blogger Friends - Many wonderful and kind congratulations

My parents - "This is the best Father's Day present you could have given me," declared my dad upon hearing the news. My mom was equally excited.

PrettyPinkPrincess (3yog) - Everyday, several times a day,

"Mom, I want three girls. You, me and the baby in your tummy."

GuerrillaGuy (7yob) - After a conversation about whether or not I should/would take medicine when the baby is born to keep it from hurting so much, with a worried look said, "Mom, are you anxious for the baby to be born?"

LooneyTunes (8yob) - "Oh good! We have to have lots and lots of kids in our family!"

Micah, my Beloved - "Lately I've been looking around our family and felt like there's something/someone missing... Just look at our great family... FIVE kids! I sorta feel sorry for people with small families..."

My response to the skeptics of large families up until now has been sort of an insecure response and rather non-commital as to whether or not I am excited. Well, from the first I have always been excited! And from now on I will not hesitate to respond that we are GLAD to have our fifth and may even have another... so, there!

How wonderful on your coming blessing.

How wonderful on being missionaries! We love missionaries at our house. We have a photo book that we put missionary prayer cards in and we pray for one every day with our morning devotions. Although I think I may soon make it devotions and bed time or maybe at meals.

It is so sad when human beings don't realize the wonderful life in a large family - but, when God's people don't (which we have experienced too many times) - it is REEEEAAAAALLLY sad, isn't it??

CONGRATULATIONS to your whole family!
Many blessings! and, thanks for sharing!

Congratulations!! I haven't been by in a while so just now "heard" the news! I'm one of five kids and have to say big families are wonderful. My oldest, who's only 3 1/2, holds up all his fingers and tells me that's how many babies we should have!
I'm so sorry I never got back to you about the GSE. It is Grapefruit Seed Extract, completely natural and very bitter. You can buy it in pill form or liquid. I use the liquid but squeeze it into gel caps first. Some people just drink it in water or juice. It's a powerful natural antibiotic and fungicide. It's even been used in cleaning products as a disinfectant, but it's totally safe for people. I took it faithfully when I was in Asia and stayed very healthy. I also used it diluted in water to soak my fruits and vegetables. Here is a site you can look at:
I use the Nutribiotic Brand.
Blessings on you and your family!

GOOD books - Biographies

Well, having mentioned the packing that I was doing has jinxed the good intentions as I have not packed or organized a single thing since... but I did start reading a VERY inspiring book: Pastor Hsi, Confucian Scholar and Christian by Mrs.Howard Taylor

Whenever you feel in need of inspiration from those AMAZING examples of Christians/missionaries of the past to spur you on toward love and good deeds, I recommend reading these books:

(all titles officially declared non-twaddle)

AND if you buy it from any of these links to amazon, I make 25 cents! - now that has got to make it worth it for you! heheheheh. I know you're all thinking to rush out and buy them ALL... but I think there's only one copy of the $100 one :( too bad for the rest of ya. careful though these books might change your life

There are other books that have had serious impact on my life, but these are the biographies that are the most memorable in my opinion for christian life and service. They are all definitely worthy of a re-read at some point later on down the road.


PS. I am pretty sure this is my most scholarly post yet!!

Big brother

Tonight LooneyTunes (8yob), told my Beloved that he would put the 'babies' to bed.

(The last couple nights he has sat in their room next to LittlestBubby's (1 1/2yob) bed, to keep him from climbing out - which he learned how to do just this last week (...grrr). PrettyPinkPrincess always has a hard time at bed time settling in and staying in her bed as well, but when LooneyTunes stays in there she's just fine, of course.)


He sat in there and told them a story about 'when he was little' and then prayed for them.


...then told them a few more stories... scary ones, as he told me a little later. ...well he's still learning, besides, he has a few years before he has to be the one to get up with nightmares ;)

Awww...that is so totally sweet! Story and prayers...that is something that Princess and Littlest will remember when they're older. *sigh* Sounds like you've got some great kiddos (and room for more, of course!).

My almost 7yo loves to help out. He was the one that was talking to Tank last night...trying to comfort him about his odd fears of junior camp...a camp that he initially cried about because he couldn't go to (too young) and then because *I* wouldn't be camping with him. And it's at least 3 years before he's allowed to go. Sweet but silly, huh?

Have a great night and get some rest! You need it, in "your condition" hehehee... ;-)

The BIG announcement

Yep... the NEWS you've all been waiting for... And well yes, it HAS been confirmed...

We are expecting our 5th baby!!!!

He or she is to be born around the first week of January,

so I'm going to try for New Year's Day.

This explains some of that feeling terrible the last couple weeks, huh?! :)


Here's his/her first picture: heehehehehe

So, can you tell where his/her head, feet or anything is for that matter?!

That's okay, God's not finished yet! ;) We saw the tiny heart beating, little legs, huge head and I can't remember what else. All at 10weeks! AMAZING!!

To the Father of my children

My Beloved, with my four little loves...

I couldn't ask for a better husband and father to my children. He is a wonderful example of a life continually being molded by the Lord, he truly hungers and thirsts for righteousness. He works at whatever he does with all his strength. He is a faithful and trustworthy man who cares deeply for his wife and children. The Lord has blessed me GREATLY!

Happy Father's Day!

Today, Tomorrow, Next week and beyond...

Alright, now that I/we have been sick so long, I've forgotten what it is like to write a normal blog entry!

At first glance, I cannot think of a thing to write.

So... today everyone is feeling alright (definition of alright = not vomiting, not in bed in agony, no fevers). Several of us still have recurring stomach aches, but overall, we're doing much better.

Tomorrow, our friends arrive. That will be neat, as long as we don't make them sick!

Consequently, because of our visitors, we have a pretty busy week planned for this next week. I'll have to blog about it as we go along.

Dearest Beloved Micah and I discussed the upcoming months last night and put some finishing touches on our plans. As always, looking beyond next week takes some serious concentration and decision-making skills! We realized we have (after our guests leave) only 3 1/2 weeks to pack up our house and move all our things into storage (we'll get rid of some stuff). After that we will take a two week trip to Trujillo for the Bible Institute. After that we will be in Lima for a week. After that we will fly to the States where we basically will be living out of suitcases again for 3 more weeks, while driving around the U.S.! When we counted them up, we realized we will be living out of suitcases for something insane like 5 or 6 weeks! ...with four little kids! Oh my. Needless to say, last night I felt a little bit daunted by that. But I woke up this morning. And I realized... This is my life! How can I complain?! It is how the Lord has chosen to bless me! Besides, if I worry about tomorrow it only serves to ruin today. So, be happy, self, I say, and be grateful for what the Lord has given you today!

"...for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning.

Great is your Faithfulness.

I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion, I will wait for him."

~ Lamentations 3:22-23

"...yet I will rejoice in the Lord,

I will be joyful in God my Savior.

The sovereign Lord is my strength,

he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,

he enables me to go on the heights."

~Habbakuk 3:18-19

Suitcase living-not fun. I estimate between our time in Thailand and then our across the USA trip, we will be doing it for 11 weeks straight!! Am I crazy or what? If I'm not yet, I will be by then!

Posted by PinayMom (
It is a matter of attitude. I had to check on mine often. I am actually experiencing a different kind of homesickness from my family back home. Plus the fact that after 2 months, we are still a squatter here in my in laws. Not very comfortable and I am getting anxious everyday when we could move to our own place. But I do have a husband who still adores me and is really working hard. You're right, your post reminds me that this is the life that God has choose for me to bless.

Great is thy faithfulness, O God!

Hi, Amy. You've been sick, and I've been moving. All settled now. WHEW!!! That is a job. I totally understand about the living out of suitcase and the transition issues for the kids. We're going through the transition AGAIN of a new city. It's hard. God has been saying over and over to me the very same verse you quoted. NEW EVERY MORNING! That's a good thing because I think I used them all up yesterday... :-) And take it one day at a time. When we plan too much, it's overwhelming. At least for me it is.

Will you be able to blog from the road? Hope so.

We are still alive

...albeit painfully :) I have been dutifully taking my turn at being sick, and although I am somewhat better than before, I am wondering if it will ever end.

Micah got sick AGAIN. He was in bed all afternoon yesterday and miserable through the night. And now GuerillaGuy is groaning again.


I have debated whether or not to keep blogging about this, but as there has been little else to write about... and there are people who do pray... and well, I have to let you all know we are not dead!

Okay, so I've got to be going now.

Hey, one piece of news... I WON a contest! I cannot believe it. I don't remember what the guidelines were, I think just to leave a comment. But it doesn't matter I won my first bloggers contest ever! I won an e-book called "Loving Your Knight In Shining Armor... Even When He Doesn't Shine" by Lorrie. I printed it all off, trying to make it like a real book with 2 sided copies, then realized the pages aren't in order... ugh. Oh well.

Well, back to bed.

I'm sick and tired of this...

I'm tired because it's late. I'm sick because it seems to be my lot in life for this week. Afterall, it is my turn...

It all started almost 2 weeks ago with dear Micah being agonizingly sick, and then LooneyTunes with a very bad stomach ache. From there it passed to GuerrillaGuy who has been vomiting for the past several days. Just tonight PrettyPinkPrincess came down with a fever and is feeling quite crummy. I guess it is my turn now. I won't describe my symptoms for those of you weak of heart.

So, I apologize that this post doesn't not mark the turn of the tide for the more cheerful side of this blog. This sickness stuff surely has stifled our regular life/school/ministry activities... I've started to wonder if it is not some kind of spiritual attack. I'm not sure how those kind of things actually work. But you can keep on praying for us :) The Lord, of course, remains faithful.

I guess we may be headed back to the doctor's office afterall...

Bacteria, protazoa and viruses

Well, the results are in.

  • Micah doesn't have Giardia but another bacteria.
  • Everyone's blood is fine.
  • We have yet to produce a sample for LooneyTune's intestinal content - who cannot bring himself to eat and continues to have severe nausea/stomach pain AND,
  • When Micah was at the Doctor's he found out that PrettyPinkPrincess' throat culture from a month and a half ago came out positive in several points! Nice of the office to let us know the results came in! Oh my. She had something (we can't read the little lab note) and they never let us know! Grrrr. Well, she might still have it so I suppose we will be taking a trip to see our doctor.

Medical attention is beyond amazing here in PERU. It actually is enough to drive me crazy. I can't believe I actually had a baby here!!!!!! Our fourth, LittlestBubby is Peruvian/American, and was born in the clinic where we go for everything medical related. Besides the 5-6 doctor's offices, there are 3 hospital-like rooms downstairs w/ 6 beds and an operating room. (I wish I had pictures!) It really is the only clinic within 5 hours that is anywhere near N.American standards.

When someone needs to go to the doctor, they cannot set an appointment; it is first come first served. The pediatrician's hours for example are 8am - 2pm and some days he works 5pm - 8pm and on other days 8pm- 9pm. (I'm not sure how anyone is supposed to keep track, but I digress...) So, depending on when you show up and how many people are ahead of you, you could spend over an hour with lots of other sick people in close quarters... just waiting to be seen!!!! We have tried to figure out when the least busy hours are and have had some luck. If we can manage to be first there in the morning that is usually best. But with 4 kiddies living in this less than developed city we take MANY trips to the doctor for various problems and spend WAY too much time at the doctor's office. We've tried to talk them into setting appointments, but unfortunately, they are right that the majority of the time it wouldn't work in this culture, where people are always running late, or changing without notice, etc, etc. Because Micah has been sick lately as well, he's taken the kids with him to be seen together, so I actually don't have much to complain about lately... I'm just not really excited to have to wait so long to find out with PrettyPinkPrincess what she had a month ago or might still have and possibly catching any bugs that we don't already have.

Okay, there's my rant for the day. :) I should learn to be thankful for the trials in patience!

Oh, I can (kind of ) relate to the frustration (Except that I was single when I was in SE Asia and dealt with similar medical situations. I can imagine it though, with small children! Bless you all, and I do hope for quick recovery!
Do you know about GSE? It really helped keep the stomach bugs at bay for me and my team who used it.
