Ups and downs..

As I wrote about the Three Musketeers in my last blog, I have to let you know that two of them are sick at home. Only Mary went to school today. Christine had fever yesterday, so we decided to keep her home and to test for malaria. And the test came back positive, so we started her on treatment already. She is not very sick, but it is better for her to take a rest, since she is still so weak.

Immaculate went to school last week only for 3 days. She really wanted to school, I was a bit worried if it would not be too much for her. But maybe, going to school would just be what she needed?
Saturday, Immaculate refused to eat again, so we took her for a malaria test. The test came back negative, no malaria, so we just kept her at home, trying to encourage her to eat. This time it was not so bad, she still eats, but she did loose one kg. And that is a lot on her!!!
We try to spend more time with her, talking and coloring etc. But Immaculate is very closed, we would love to get her talking, we feel there is a lot of pain inside of her.
Immaculate loves mango's and the first green ones are coming from our tree. She still has a long way to go, with many ups and downs, but we go for it!Please pray for her, she is such a precious girl.
