I Wish I Could Finally Say "Don't Worry, We Are Safe"

I didn't know I was given by our Angolan doctor a 7-day sick leave (from the 25th), until only yesterday to have found it out when I decided to see my boss at work! I went to see him yesterday morning for two reasons: to get some of my personal stuffs and to tell him that he must start making a plan for me to hand over my work loads! But even before I went to knock his door, he saw me and said "Oh come to my office I need to speak to you", about your health condition...and even before I said a word, he said "I know what's going on, I want you rest until you go on leave and please start handling over, all I want you to do is to come here whenever you like - monitor and check his job and if you need to lie down - go home and rest"... 'I REALLY CRIED SAYING 'THANK YOU SO MUCH I TRULY NEEDED IT'.....

...and on my way to see hubby to tell him what my boss had to say - our Angolan doctor saw me and handed over two pieces of paper - MY MEDICAL REPORTS to be given to my boss. Then he started telling me about their plans (among company's local directors)....that I have to get ready for this coming Sunday - to fly (hopefully they could arrange a flight) to Luanda (Angola capital) for a thorough examinations for both - MY BABY AND THE MALARIA! That he already phoned his OB-Gyne friend at Sagrada Hospital to be available starting Monday... So, their plan is - I will be confined at the hospital for a week until to see my hubby the following Sunday then we'll fly home to UK by the 11th.... I was so happy with teary eyes thanking for their care!! Our Angolan doctor is somehow worried about my case due to the fact that I AM PREGNANT WHILE HAVING A HIGH MALARIA COUNT!, that they couldn't do more...

I know what you're going to ask me - WHY TO WAIT UNTIL SUNDAY Madz? WHY NOT ASAP? Because we don't want to gamble the safety of our baby to travel a 12-HOUR TRIP from mine site to Luanda, which hopefully and that God will allow for the time being - for a possible special flight this coming Sunday, which is not possible during weekdays...

Since we DON'T GET FLIGHTS ANYMORE, everybody travels backwards and forwards by road trips, and even our foods are also now being transported by land. We used to get 4 flights per week 5 months ago, but due to security reason, the government and our company agreed to cancel all the public flights, except for Diamond Exports and any private flights!

I now started getting rid of our old stuffs (with our local cleaning ladies), since we are not certain yet if hubby is still gonna come back due to recession, and our company will due to inform us the real score during the week! Besides, we both have an ULTIMO VISAS - meaning LAST ISSUE OF WORKING PERMIT - not unless if the company still needs him (never mind about me), that they are going to process his visa again! We never know what's gonna happen....But for the meantime, we are not worried about it - all we want is for me to get out of here!

I would like to take this opportunity to say - I JUST CAN'T THANK YOU ALL ENOUGH FOR ALL UNDYING SUPPORT, ALL YOUR CARE, LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, REMINDERS... I appreciate all so much! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I am lucky to have guys as my friends....Will keep you posted before Sunday.. Love yah all!!
