My week has been off the wall.
Tuesday morning at 2:30 p.m., I’m awakened by the elder who sleeps above
me (Elder Evans). He got down from the
bunk bed and went to the bathroom. I
knew something was up so I went to check on him and when he came out he was
shaking like crazy; shivering to death! I
honestly thought he was going to die. We
sat him down and tried to take his temperature. Our thermometer wasn’t working, but by my hand
I could tell he was burning up. After a
blessing, I sat and tried to convince him to go to the hospital but he refused.
He stopped shaking, but then began to
He stayed in bed the next day, but then my comp got kinda sick too! We took Evans to the hospital Tuesday night at
about 8:00 p.m. and remained there till about 10:00. We then had the missionaries who finished
their missions at our place and were up Wednesday morning at 3:30 a.m. to take
them to the airport. At 8:00 Wednesday
morning, we knew that my comp had the same illness. We didn’t take him to the hospital thinking it
was the same thing as Evans (food poisoning). But when they both didn’t
recover, I took my comp to the hospital.
Wednesday at 7 p.m. we went to the hospital.
I sat four straight hours in the waiting room and he finally came out - Parasites!
My comp has a big ol' worm in him.
The two sicko’s chilled together sick for most of the weekend and I then
went out with the other Elder Brown, as he is the only healthy one around
We also had zone conference on Friday, office staff meeting, an open
house on Saturday and two showings of Meet the Mormons.
Today we celebrated the fourth of July. My comp felt well enough to come out for a
while. We had soccer, volleyball
frisbee, barbeque, watermelon eating contests and other games! I had a stellar
time and got to run around.
This next week we get ready for transfers and meet with President to
figure all that crap out. I find out where I’m going to serve my last two transfers
and hopefully have some input.
Sounds like you guys are boring as freak back home, but I wish I could be
with you all for the fourth! Go do
something fun and then send me some pics for next week!
I love and miss you all!
