Out of Contact and Rosa Update

We have spent most of the month of August traveling, thus I haven't done much blogging. We are in the states now, but should be back in Honduras this week.
Here is what I know about little Rosa. We did see her again before we left Trujillo and she looked good. The last news we heard was that Vanessa and Rosa were staying in a good place where they could get the help they needed. We do not know if the seizure caused any permanent damage.

Udate on Rosa

Last night, at the hospital, they told Brian that Rosa is better. She has not had any more seizures. They wanted to keep her for 24 hours for observation, but then would release her. This morning, they are still saying that Rosa is ok, but they want to do a blood test before they send her home. That is about the extent of the technology they have here in Trujillo for running any tests. A doctor friend in the states says, the seizure from yesterday may have caused brain damage because it lasted for so long. And all the tests that need to be done to determine the cause or how to proceed from here are not available here, maybe not even in the big city. So, the prognosis doesn't look good. Please continue to pray for Rosa.
