We've been trying to take advantage of our free time before the big day, filling our days with some fun and keeping our minds and bodies busy!
We took a trip to the New England Aquarium on Friday and enjoyed it even more than last time, if that's possible! We got to see the penguins getting fed and the harbor seals getting trained and two divers move around the huge central tank.
The tropical tanks
The photo with the dolphin statue...check out the one from last time (below)--how she's grown!
Today (Saturday) we had lunch at Faneuil Hall with Angelica Rojas, who lived at Hogar Sagrado Corazon for a number of years when she was younger, and now lives in the Boston area. She did a few months as a volunteer at the Hogar recently, and it was so nice to catch up with her!
She went with us to a Tufts Ladies Basketball game on campus (in Medford) and the Jumbos trounced the Bates women, remaining undefeated so far this season!
Angelica and Deysi after the game
We were able to sneak up to the Jills room, but didn't catch them practicing.
(I sang with the Jills, a female a cappella group, while at Tufts) .
And we took the mandatory photo on the President's Steps
We made our way to Sacred Heart Church in Cambridge for the evening mass. It was beautiful and the faithful were wonderfully welcoming--the priest, choir and all those attending even came right over to the bench where we were sitting to pray for and with us during the homily!

Now we're back in our room, resting and watching The Land Before Time. We'll take it slow tomorrow, only venturing out for Sunday Mass at the same church at 11:00am. We cherish your prayers and will post again once the surgery is over and we are back in our hotel room, as we cannot access the internet easily while in the hospital. There is some question as to whether or not we will be spending the night in the hospital on Monday--all depends on how Deysi does in the hours after the surgery. All is in God's loving hands and we are at peace knowing that He knows best.
