Things really are moving!

So following blogs is an obsession when you're adopting. I know of at least one family whose dossier is in the 70's and they are being reviewed right now. Amazing. Awesome. The ministry is moving at a lightening fast pace. I love it!

DTR 5 Months

So our dossier has been in Rwanda for 5 months now. Nothing exciting happening (that I know of) in the Ministry. We should hear from our agency next month about any updates they have. They have someone there now and someone going in March as well. I did see on another blog that the Ministry is up to #55 on dossiers. It's good news that everything is still moving.

In other news, I had an appointment with my neuropthomologist today and I only have one more drug to try (Namenda) before I can have surgery on my left eye. Yeah! I will start the medication tomorrow and be on it for 4 weeks (if I tolerate it which I probably won't) and then, since everyone knows it won't work (EVERYONE KNOWS THIS), I have a f/u scheduled with Dr. Wallace on 4/4 for a pre-op exam. I'm so excited. I've never been so excited to have surgery before but this is HUGE! It's a possibility the surgery won't work but it's a better possibility it will work and I will be eye patch/blacked out contact free and when we travel to Rwanda I won't be questioned by every person why I wear an eye patch, what's under the eye patch, etc. I'm so excited. SO EXCITED. I just have to get through this one last medication and whatever side effect(s) it throws my way. yeah!
