On to Guangzhou

Today, we flew from Nanchang to Guangzhou. This is where the White Swan Hotel is. It is where we will be getting the baby's visas, and their American Medical Exams. It's coming down to the wire.

Today, during the flight, we learned that Acer despises having a seat belt on. At least, he does when he is wearing the compression belt that was supposed to help him with the hernia, but just made him have to pee every 5 minutes. I think he went at least 15 times before noon. It was very strange. He had the belt figured out in the first 2 minutes of the flight, and we tried to get him situated, he had another hernia, we think. But later, the hernia was gone, probably receded on it's own. That was a thankful occurrence. After landing, where we were forced to hold him, in opposition to the handy lit signs, we got here. The White Swan is a LARGE hotel, currently mostly catering to families, but it will be switching to business later.

Oh, and by the way, I think someone dropped off a new child for us when we got here.

I think this, because when we got to the room, until about 8, there were no major blowups, and actually happy Acer. This was strange, and we took many pics of it, just to prove that it happened. Of course, these most important photos, are currently on a memory card that has failed. I am currently working feverishly to recover them, so we can post them. I am very irritated at the device that has slain 2 memory cards so far... Maybe 3. We had dinner in the lounge, and met with Norm, Susie, and Ruth, with Mia their newest daughter. She is 4, and has the cognitive and language skills of an adult. At this time, she speaks very little English, but will come around soon. One of the many things that has changed with Acer is the fact that he actually voluntarily laid down. I know this sounds small, but this has been our fight since day 1. He is currently sleeping on the foot of the bed, so I am going to have to try and move him, and see what happens. Well, good night, and pray to the god of computers that this recovery works.
