Today was our first full day in Guangzhou. Just being at the China Hotel brings back so many memories of my time here 4 years ago with Ruthie. I have thought of my old travel group many times and have frequent flashbacks of my time here before.
You will have to forgive my poor picture quality. These were all taken with my cell phone because there just isn't much room or energy to carry my big 'ole camera when I am trying to keep up with the girls.
Maggie had her medical appointment today. The doctor asked me 3 times if she had surgery yet like when I answered no the first 2 times I didn't understand. She would look at Maggie's paperwork and then look at Maggie back and forth several times and then asked for a 2nd copy of her paperwork. She explained that Maggie's paperwork looked very serious but her presentation was much better. Yes we know that, thank you.
Maggie charmed all of the doctors and nurses. She doesn't meet a stranger and is a complete flirt. Yesterday someone gave her a balloon in the mall and today a nurse brought out a toy and gave it to her.
Her coloring really does look good unless she is crying, having just eaten, or is tired. She has trouble drinking and breathing. The first 2 days I just thought she didn't want the cup but now I am discovering that I need to keep offering it frequently. She is not a finish 8 oz in one sitting kind of girl but rather suck on it off and on over 2 hours.
