Step-by-Step: Making Aliyah to Israel

Documenting the very personal process of making Aliyah (immigration to Israel) by one very atypical Israeli-American girl. Aliyah on 17, August, 2005. Roadmap: What do you mean there's no roadmap?! Hang on, we're in for a bumpy ride! Ole!

Pandy is having a very "good" day today. We played a new game called "kibbles in the water bowl." Since she got her anti-nausea shot last night she has been wanting to eat her kibbles and has eaten a lot (like more in the past 24 hours than in the past week combined) all on her own. She has also been drinking a lot on her own. And playing a lot.

Trying to entice her to eat and to drink more, I tried dropping a kibble into her water bowl where it bobbed around. She sniffed. She timidly inserted a paw into the water to tap it. She began batting and playing with it. She tried to eat bobbed away. She tried scooping it up with the paw to eat it and almost managed. 30 more kibbles went into the water bowl bobbing happily. She chased them, alternately drinking in her attempt to eat and occasionally snagging the prize itself. I occasionally inserted a helpful finger to lift the kibble into "not moving" bite-ability. 30 kibbles consumed in one go. Ahhh happy Ema bliss.
