Esther is admitted in the hospital...

In the previous blog , I wrote  about the birthday of Esther. She didn't feel good that day, but today she had fever and pain in her stomach. Our nurse took her to the doctor. He checked her and referred her to get a scan. We took her to a clinic which is good in scanning.
The technician saw something and advised us to do also an X-ray of the abdomen. Then he wrote a report and explained to us that he thinks there is an obstruction in the intestines. he referred us to the surgeon.... We found the surgeon in the theatre, he allowed us to come in the doctors room and read everything and looked at the X-ray and scan report. The only option is an operation,,,, And Esther is so weak and so malnourished, can she stand an operation???  
Esther was admitted in the hospital and they want to operate her tomorrow. We had to drive through Soroti to find the I.V. medicins the doctor prescribed. We are worried, but there is no other option..
The other thing is that I am leaving for a vacation to Holland tomorrow early in the morning. I leave Esther behind in the capable hands of two nurses, Deborah (at the right) and Marlinde (left). But it is hard to leave on this way. I prayed for Esther before I left and I kissed her, I pray that she will come through the operation and that when I am coming back in 4 weeks, she will still be there.......
So now I am packing the suitcases, I am going together with my two youngest daughters, Helen and Catherine. The oldest two, can not come because of their study.. But they will travel with us to see us off. We are leaving very early, because we also take baby Benjamin with us, he has to go for his checkup in Kampala. After that they will bring us to the airport. Mary and Sarah will care for Benjamin and they will travel back to Soroti the next day. Simon is driving us.
I was looking forward to go, but my thoughts are also with Esther.... Pls. pray for her........
