It's all downhill from here, y'all! Scott's time in Uganda has hit the halfway point. He'll be home in 9 days!
I wish I could give some sort of update on how he is doing, but we haven't really talked much. This may sound strange, but I kind of prefer it this way. Any time we have a drawn out or in depth discussion I end up feeling lonelier and saddened. I guess it just reminds me more that he is not here and I am not there.
Overall Scott seems well. He has been healthy and sleeping decently enough. He has been busy, which is great. Just keep praying that He accomplishes his many programs (that's what we call them in Uganda) before he departs. With only 8 days left in country, I know he'll be working hard to wrap things up.
On this side of the Atlantic I have been faring decently. It seems each time Scott goes to Uganda I deal with it better. It also helps that Vivian is now older and more aware of where her daddy is and who he is with. In fact, she gets concerned if "Daddy Ophilus" isn't with "Daddy Boy" when we call. (Yes, this is what she calls Scott...and she calls herself "Vivian Girl." I am just plain old "mommy.") She somehow takes comfort or pleasure in believing Scott and Theophilus are together 24/7. Knowing who he is with and what he is doing has made her bear Scott's absence much more peaceably.
We SURE will be glad to have him home, though! And once he is home I will be more than happy to hear those stories and reports he's been storing up for me. And hopefully, I can pass pieces of them along to you all.
Thanks for your prayers!
