It’s 6:00 on what’s the Chinese friday–they don’t take Saturday off. They do have Sunday off. There’s been no word on our swabs. We hope they’ve decided not to tell us they were negative, because they think we’re going to start fussing about leaving, and we were very difficult about the hotel thing. They don’t, we suspect, want to come to back to us–although I’ve no doubt that if one of us is positive, we’re going down.

But I think I have to chill. I don’t think we’re gettin’ a definitive answer.

For what it’s worth, Rob disagrees with me about Wyatt and Lily. The trip is an extraordinary opportunity, and we extraordinarily unlucky. And I’m imagining the worst, whereas Rob is pointing out that we have done pretty well so far. We’ll stick together, we’ll work it out.
Plus we’re NOT SICK.

    Just thought I’d say hello. I’m following your adventure b/c we are suppose to have one of our own later this fall. We’ve just sent our LOI for our dd who is in Yunnan province– she’s 2.2 yrs. I also have 3 other little devils (all boys – 8,6, and 3)– We live in Southern NH but are pretty familiar with Hanover. Anyway, I’m wishing you the best of luck– I hope all this quarentine stuff ends and you can just go get your daughter !!
    Take care– Davida Rubin-Baker

    kccmom here from RQ. I am so sorry this is happening to you guys. I thought that since you were already touring Beijing that you were in the clear. What a lesson for all of us. You are being very strong, and I will be praying for you all. By the way, I think Panda Balancing should become a new Olympic sport!

    Still thinking of you guys and praying for negative swabs. I know you must be out of your mind. Hang in there.

    The Panda Balancing is great! I hope, hope, hope you are all negative. They would have come instantly if you were positive I think. What’s the time difference?…. You know, so I can worry in real time :-). And skype you if you want.
