This is Tamara's DH. Just writing to let you know why Tamara has not posted any new updates today.
Tamara is suffering from a bladder infection, which we and the doctor originally thought was appendicitis. The bladder infection was definitely very painful and so it is good not to have to worry about the kids for a day or two. But Tamara is so ready to come home. She said, don't they just send you home with cranberry juice and some pain reliever in the U.S.? The medical or health care system here in Germany is a bit more cautious and wanted to observe Tamara for a few days.
We went to the hospital emergency room on Sunday night and because the signs pointed to appendicitis the doctor wanted to check her in right away. The other option was to have her come back at 9 a.m. the next morning. This was after midnight on Sunday, so we decided to have her admitted.
Tamara is doing well. I will be posting some details on our Living in Germany blog.
