The kicker of it all was that we had bought plane tickets to visit part of our Mexican family (from the family that originally hosted us when we arrived in 2007) who live in Cancun. Kevin worked over Christmas break so we never were able to have a vacation together as a family, and when we found discounted tickets we went ahead and bought them. In the end it was a close call whether or not we should countinue with our trip as planned, but because Eliana was showing good signs of improving we went ahead and flew to Cancun on Thursday.
Thankfully, since we have been here in Cancun Eliana has improved dramatically (mostly due to her ability to keep food down). We watched our little girl come back and we are so grateful to have her like her old self. We are also extremely thankful for the opportunity to rest together as a family. I will update more about our trip in the following week.
