Last Day of Appeal

Another ‘arrrrgghhh’ moment this afternoon, we were told that Leah had not sufficiently recovered from her ear infection and they would need to keep her in the baby house for another 6 or 7 days. We understand the reasons why and off course it’s the best thing for her to stay where she is until she is better, especially when she will be leaving Ust on a 9 hour flight soon but even so it was kinda tough to take today. If we had a cat I’d be kicking him around the hotel room tonight!!!

Thankfully Luke is well enough to come out tomorrow so it will help to see him around the hotel although the news about Leah has dampened the mood a little for Jeremy and Elaine also. Ah well, at least we can continue to visit her and as far as she is concerned nothing has changed, if she had been back with us a few nights and then got sick it would have been much worse.

On the bright side, as of 12am tonight the appeal period is over and we are officially the parents of Leah Jane Irina Davidson!!

Pray that Leah will recover quickly and that we can bring her home soon.

In other exciting news Leah has got a brand new cousin, a healthy new baby Stanfield girl!! Congratulations to Amanda’s sister Annette, Jonathan and the new big sisters, Caitlin, Anna and Megan.

Philip, Amanda & Leah

I remember after the appeal period finally feeling like I could finally let out a big SIGH!!
