Consulate Day

12 Mar

Today we had our appointment at the US Consulate. It took about 2 hours but Malachi was great. There was a little play area for kids but until it cleared out some he didn’t want to play. He warmed up to it when there were only a couple kids left. We were not aloud to bring our phones or cameras so we couldn’t take any pics. They are expediting his visa so we should be able to get it tomorrow and we start to travel back home tomorrow night. Here is a pic that our guide took before we went in.

We went to Shamian Island today to site see and shop. We bought the family some traditional Chinese outfits, ate some American food at Lucy’s (it didn’t taste as good as American but it helped with the burger craving) and we walked around a lot. I’m exhausted. The Pearl River surrounds the island. Here is a pic of Kev and I. It was difficult to get Malachi in at the time as he was in the stroller watching boats.

We had 2 drop in oxygen episodes with Malachi today. The first time I took him into Starbucks to change him. The bathroom was freezing and his temp dropped too fast which makes his oxygen fall. He couldn’t stop coughing and his teeth were chattering so bad. I had to carry him back out to the stroller. I was afraid to let him walk he was so blue. The second time he was playing with bubbles that Kevan was blowing for him. It was sad to see that what kids would think is just normal play for them his little body could hardly handle. He got so blue and was coughing so bad I made him come back and sit in the stroller. Poor little guy. I checked his oxygen after we got him settled and sitting still and it was 45. Probably lower though since it took us awhile to get him settled.

There were a lot of people taking pictures. When I first saw this guy I thought he was a mannequin but quickly realized he was s model.

All over Guangzhou we see men and women sweeping with these brooms.

Pretty scenery.
