Yesterday Isabelle was not feeling well. She would not drink or eat much of anything. At about 11:30pm I woke up to find her burning up with a fever next to me (in my arm). Her temp was 104.7, gave her some Tylenol. She woke many more times through the night. Kevin and Andrew went to the mountain park with Nick and Rebecca at 9:00am. Isabelle and I stayed in the hotel all day. She finally started to feel a little better at the end of the day. We went to the Cow and Bridge for Thai food. We sat next to Bunny and family. Isabelle really came out of her shell tonight. She sat in the highchair or the first time at dinner. She chatted away in Chinese, smiling at everyone. She was so happy. At the end of dinner I handed her the rest of my rice with curry and she ate a few pieces of rice. THIS IS HUGE PROGRESS! After dinner we went to Jordan's make a few more purchases. Jordan could speak a little of the language spoken in Zhuhai (his grandfather was from there). When he would speak to her she would just light up...it was wonderful. On our way back to the hotel, Isabelle wanted to get down and walk holding my hand. THIS IS A FIRST! She has only gotten off my lap twice at Starbucks for a moment. So we are making great progress. Our airplane ride home may not be quite as easy as I had thought.
Tomorrow is our medical at 10:00am....hope to post more photos then.
