no such thing...

as coincidence.

That's what I believe.

Have I ever mentioned that Providence is refugee haven? For Burundians. Most of whom are fresh from refugee Tanzania.

The first time Trevy was admitted for IS there was a little refugee family in the room next door. They had only been in the States for three weeks...spoke no English...and were scared to death. J & I had the opportunity to comfort their own language! We even translated for the medical staff...

...guess who happens to be in the room katty-corner to our's this go around? Yup...another Burundian. With no English.

And last night every his room was going off. Before the nurses had a chance to totally freak out...J piped up...

We speak Swahili

The thud of multiple jaws hitting the floor was louder than the buzzers. Which were alarming too. Cause being nosey we'd peeked into his room. He didn't look good.

So in Jonathan goes...Super Swahili-man!

Out he comes five minutes later...laughing...

All the racket?

Our little Burundian friend needed all things useful in showering. stays aren't ALL bad you know.
