Midnight in A&E


Last night we took Sean to the hospital to check out something that was worrying us, however, everything is fine and we eventually got to our beds around 3 o'clock and turned our phones to silent!

Anyway, our doctor was a beautiful Russian lady who almost fell down with shock when Seán started to talk to her in Russian! She was just lovely and we got the chance to give her the link to my Russian Christian Testimony, but the comic relief came in the form of Seán while he was playing with a box of his plastic toy soldiers. After examining the base of one of them he said 'Oh, this one is called Hong Kong' and he wasn't even joking!!!

Dear Ruth,
Thank you for sharing your story! You made me cry. I have sent it to my sister in Russia. She is still grieving, her 32 y.o husband was killed 3 years ago, his son was only 30 days old. The tragedy broke our hearts.
They got married at 16 and 18,had 3 daughters and son, where together for 15 years,in love and happiness.
Maybe your story will bring some rest to her heart!
Thank you.
Wish you and your family strong health!
Dr.Zulfiya.

I am glad that Sean is all right. That must have been kind of a scary night. What a blessing to bring joy to your doctor.

That is so wonderful about your doctor and being able to talk to her and witness to her in her language.
And too funny about the Hong Kong. My boys read where everything is made, because it seems to always be China. They get excited when it's made somewhre else.

Glad everything's OK with Sean, Those Emergency places take a huge chunk of time. I was in one with Connor yesterday (he's fine, too, just cactus needles that were stuck in his foot)
