    I’ll be thinking of you all. Hang in there – you can do this!

    Praying for you all to stay together. It brings me to tears thinking of being separated from your babies in a foreign country. I can not even fathom being in that situation. Praying hard!

    Good God! I am praying hard for you all! If I could, I would hop on a plane and come get the kids and bring them home. I can’t even imagine how you are feeling right now! I guess the positive in all of this is that you caught it early and can start treatment before it gets bad!
    I love you guys and miss you tons! Keep positive and stay healthy!

    So, So sorry. We are all thinking of you. One word you need to know. Tamiflu. That is what we are using here in the U.S. to treat the swine flu. It must be started within 48 hours of symptoms though. Think positive. Pray hard. We are praying for you all.

    Oh no. I am so sorry. Hopefully you can all stay together throughout this ordeal. I hope the flu is mild and passes quickly, and that the hospital staff are compassionate. We’ll be thinking about all of you!

    I am so sorry. Came over from RQ. We had *negotiations* in Ch**na for different reasons, but I get that part of how it really can take 6 HOURS. It did for us too over a period of days.

    We had planned to take our boys w/ us and decided at that last minute not to take them b/c we got word our DD was not doing well. PLEASE don’t beat yourself up for taking your other children. I wish there was something I could say that would really help.

    I also spent a week visiting our DD in a Ch**nese hospital in an outlying province. You can do this. By and large, we had no trouble and the people were all very kind. It is different. One thing I thought of is that all of the hospital rooms had 6 beds in them, none were private. Maybe you all can stay in one room if you all must go to the hospital before this is over. Let’s hope not, but just wanted to share that.

    So, so sorry for all of this.

    Oh no! I wish I’d read this before I replied on the mailing list. I hope you’ll all be all right.

    Awww man! I was so hoping it would go the other way. In fact, I was nearly positive it would. Please take care, sweetie. You have my love and get well wishes. 🙁
