Play Therapy

Well, we were supposed to have “physical” therapy, but that didn’t happen. Supposedly Kenyan physical therapists expect patients to keep medical records on themselves and bring them to every appointment. So, being naive as I am, I piled the kids in the van and drove them all the way to town just to find out I don’t have the medical records, and hence there would be no therapy. The doctor wouldn’t even budge. So, we went to my house and had some “play” therapy. Much more pleasent I suppose. We watched movies, colored, ate watermellon, and made some cookies. They had never made, nor eaten a chocolate chip cookie before, so it was a treat!

    Watch out, with care like that, I think I’d “forget” my medical records next time if I were one of your kids.

    Stay safe!! The U.S. Embassy in Kenya warned American citizens Saturday of an “imminent threat of terrorist attacks.”

    The embassy said it has received credible information of attacks directed at “prominent Kenyan facilities and areas where foreigners are known to congregate, such as malls and nightclubs.”

    The warning comes after Kenya sent troops across the border into Somalia to pursue suspected Islamic militants from Al-Shabaab.

    Al-Shabaab, which is linked to al Qaeda and has been designated a terrorist organization by the United States, is fighting to impose its own interpretation of Islamic law, or Sharia, on Somalia.

      Thank you Bob! My friends and I were actually planning a trip to Niarobi next weekend, but have decieded not to go. Good news is, no nightclubs or shopping malls in kitale! I have been taking some precautions, like not walking to town alone, and trying to be home by dark.
