It's 1:30am on Friday here and we are now safely in Nathan's birth city. Everything has been going smoothly...for the most part:-) Here's a short recap:

*After traveling for 24 hours, we landed in Moscow on Wednesday at about 11:30am. This was followed by a 1 1/2 hour ride in heavy traffic to the medical clinic...

*For the next 5 1/2 hours we were examined by 8 doctors with lengthy wait times between each-they most have known we like to power nap, LOL!

*Finally, in a near catatonic state of exhaustion, we hit our first very cool upgrade. We signed up for an efficiency apartment for the first two nights, but boo hoo! They were all booked. So the owners ended up putting us in a different "arrangement." This "arrangement" happened to be a huge two bedroom apartment with a sitting room, full kitchen, living room, big 'ole bathroom complete with a washer and a little enclosed balcony. Score! It was awesome! And the best part...the price was amazing at wayyyyy less than $200 a night. We felt totally safe even though we weren't in a hotel because of our huge burgandy "fortress" door:-)

*At 7pm today we were scheduled to fly to Nathan's city...then a mini-bummer hit. Our flight was changed to 2 1/2 hours later and we didn't really have anywhere to go in the meantime. THEN, the upgrade:-) We were bumped to first class, which was completely awesome! First we got to hang out in a spiffy newly remodeled lounge with comfy seats and complementary refreshments, then on the plane we had even more comfy leather seats and a three course meal. They even served us with real plates and gave us linen napkins. Shazaam..sure beats the cold prewrapped mystery meat they serve in economy class any day!

* I love it when God does more than we expect:-) Sometimes our clouds really do have a silver lining!

*Please pray with us that He will come through again as in my original exhausted stupor on Wednesday I misplaced a rather important piece of paper. We know He can help us overcome this hurdle:-)

In 8 hours we get to see Nathan. We can't wait! We'll post pictures as soon as possible.
