Good news! Mary Beth was feeling so much better today that she sat and ate the first half of her dinner before going to the couch to finish her runza (if you aren't from Nebraska, a runza is bread dough filled with cabbage, spices and hamburger (or bacon!) and baked in the oven). This is the first time she's felt good enough to sit at the table for a couple of weeks.
The insurance company called to say that they talked to the surgeon in the States and will have a meeting tonight to discuss how to get her there. It was pretty non-committal. My first impulse is to write that I'm not expecting much to happen because the Arequipa airport is closed, but I'll ask you to pray for a miracle flight instead!
