Bad roads....

Today we had to go back with Catherine to the Eye Hospital in Torroro. Normally you drive it in 2 hours, but nowadays it cost 4 hours, due to the bad roads. So we were on this road for 8 hours today!! You see on the two pictures left, big holes in the road, muddy and big puddles with water. This is the road where all the traffic drives on the way from Kenya to Sudan. So many big trucks and trailers.
For almost 2 years they are working on this road, but not much is improved, it is even more worse now.
We also took Joshua with us, he has a lot of problems with his eyes, I took him some time ago to the doctor in Soroti. he thought it was a bad allergy, but advised us to let the eye doctor look at him. So that we did, the bad road got  effects, Joshua got car sick and threw up in the car.
Here is Joshua being examened by the eye doctor. And it is a bad allergy, we got special eye drops for him, that is all what we can do. Catherine was also doing well, the problem she has, is still there, but they found out that it is a congential cause, and nothing with her brains or optic nerve ststem. That is also good news. She did very good with the examination and she was all over the place, greeting people, walking everywhere and on the picture she is very interested in the stool which can go up and down. We have to come back over 6 months.
