Well I'll start rite off with an update. I have had to go to the hospital one more time with a severe allergic reaction, we still don't know exactly what to? So hopefully they send me to Mexico with a EPPY Pen. Well I went to the doctor yesterday and he let me know I am getting worse, kinda! It is funny because I feel much better. The Infection as spread to the bottom of my right lung, and I cough up blood (No worries they jsut said it is from the infection!) So I am still on a Pain Killer, Lots of Antibiotics, and some anxiety medacine.
They put me on the anxiety thing because after my last allergic reaction I guess that I started freaking out and thought the room was closing on me. It is funny because they decided I need to see a councilor to! It is funny, phycologists are so funny! Lol well sorry if my e-mail last week was a little down, it was actually the only day that I actually struggled with being so sick.
I have been able to see God's hand in my life very much lattly. It is funny because I wish I could see what he is thinking sooner. I questioned for a while why I had gotten so sick, it was like, "What the Heck?" Well I was able to find out that noone in the last 3 weeks has gone home. I found out from afew people that when I got sick they had been planning on going Home (about three people told me this) They said when they saw the pain I was in and still going to class and smiling and going around to give everyone hugs, they just couldn't go home. It is so sad how unworthy I was, that I could not even see this, and that I was not able to put more trust in our Heavenly father.
I also have realy learned to put my trust in the scriptures and lean to the scriptures. THis time last week I was in Alma Chapter 2 I think, and now I have 2 chapters left in The Book Of Mormon. I have one scripture that has helped me alot as well and that I have learned tons from. It is in Alma It says that if we put our trust in God he will deliver us from our trials. I have tried putting this to the test. I have not been delivered like I thought that I would be (being healed), but have felt so much help in my life it has been AWESOME!
Well I probably will be in the MTC through the new year. Not only are Visas to Mexico about 3 weeks behind and more, But my surgen said he probably wont dare put me under to go under the knife for another two weeks. Lol I prayed and asked if I realy needed knee surgery this morning, and I think I received my answer very profound, on the way back to the temple I slipped on some ice and something "popped" in my knee, and now it is pretty painful to walk! So ya, I will probably be here for awhile, and Guess what, I am just fine with that! I think there are some people here I still need to meet.
Well enough about me, how is everyone doing? I got Emily her letter written today (she is the only one who has written me) and Mom I wrote to you.
