Brazil here we come!

We're off.  Got the go ahead.  Estella will have surgery on her hip when we get back in 3 months.  It's a relief that we can go now, but I know in the back of my mind I'll be thinking about her surgery, and then she'll need a cast for a while and then a brace.  Time to focus on packing now... summer here we come!

waiting for my gums to heal, waiting for visas, waiting for Estella's specialist appointment...

A few weeks ago I had my 4 wisdom teeth removed. Not a nice experience which I'm happy not to have to go through again. Now I'm waiting patiently while the big holes in my gums heal properly. I have to be careful not to get food stuck so it doesn't cause infection. SO ANNOYING!! Anyway, we are now also waiting patiently for our visas to come so we can take the kids back to Brazil to see their Brazilian family. And to top it off we are waiting to find out from Estella's specialist appointment next week what will need to happen to correct Estella's hip dysplasia. We had a big day yesterday, going from the physiotherapist, to the GP, to get an X-ray, and then back to the GP today. So we may or may not make it to Brazil on the 16th of March as planned, it all depends on how urgent Estella needs to be sorted out as once again we'll be spending a whole 3 months in Brazil. So some new adventures are a happening!

Oh, time to go private so if you want to keep squizzing at Essie Adventures leave your email in the comments.
