So... I am feeling a little like opening this blog spot and explaining why I haven't written. As anyone who read my past blogs I was away on Mission to Haiti. I got back on November 19Th and by mid day of the 20Th I started feeling very ill. I went to bed around 3 o'clock and feel like I barely was awake for days. Sleeping was my only comfort. I felt as though a truck had run me over. I had a small fever but was taking a combination of Tylenol and Advil(double dipping you might say) to mask the horrible pain, My glands under my armpits swelled like peas and so did the ones on the back of my head and neck. I was hungry. but when I ate I had bad indigestion. As it worsened I found it hard to drink even water. By Monday I saw the doctor and he sent me to the lab for tests. Well day after day my white and red cells dropped and my Liver (something?) increased. It got really complicated but my doctor said it was anything from Malaria to Hepatitis. After another traveler was diagnosed with Dengue fever, he figured that was probably what I had. I don't really care to revisit all of that. But, today, I feel awake and ready to maybe somehow share what I experienced. So many people and places! I will again put all to prayer. For now Keith is pulling in the driveway and Celena is hungry so I guess life may be back to normal. Maybe tomorrow I will share.
