They're home! I just talked to Tanya, and her first words were "We escaped!" She sounded exhausted, but so happy. They just signed out, against medical advice, or however you say that.
My prayers were answered beyond what I could have imagined. Tanya "just happened" to run into the doctor who takes care of Katya and Alyona. That doctor told her to get out of the hospital as fast as she could and promised to visit them at home. It was just what Tanya needed: an expert to get her past her fears of going against the experts in the hospital.
Tanya was full of horror stories about the hospitals. She said that if someone else had been telling her these things, she would have thought they were exaggerating. Oh, I'm so glad that's all behind them!
Now we can look forward to the day camp ahead of us next week. I feel like a huge burden has fallen off of me, and I know Pavel and Tanya are even more relieved. Thank you, Lord!
