Letter-May 15th, 2016

I realize how that it has been a while since I have emailed. Some of you may have heard that I did get sick. So the last few weeks have been crazy. I got a new companion a few weeks ago. Her name is Sister Hussein. She is from Fiji and my batch mate from the MTC so it's so fun to be companions.

Ok so a the week I got my new comp I was feeling sick. I was having on and off fevers and super bad body aches. Then I started getting rashes. So I knew that something was wrong. Thankfully I know what the symptoms are for Dengue because I had almost all of them. So my companion and I had to go to MLC for a meeting and I was just looking like crap and not feeling good. Sister Aquino said as soon as I get back to the area to get checked out before other symptoms come. So I did got to the hospital and tested positive to dengue fever. So I got admitted and was in the hospital for 3 days. They had to monitor my blood platelet levels because that is the next stage of dengue. Thankfully I caught it early and got on taken care of before it got worse. I was really lucky with my case of dengue. I was very thankful to the Elders who gave me a blessing and for the really awesome doctor who when out of his way to monitor me because he knew I am far away from home and wanted to make sure I wasn't going to freak out. (little did he know I have spent plenty of time in the hospital) But I was very thankful to him. Everyone in the whole hospital knew of some white girl and black girl staying in the hospital. I had lot of missionary visitors. Anyway I was able to be discharged after 3 days and later that week I started back into work. The sickness and going to MLC made it so I was out of work for 10 days. MY companion and I were thankfully to be able to get back to work. 

Just so you all know I am now back to 100% and ready to go again. Also this last week I was able to skype my family for the last time! It was so great to see them and talk with them. 

Thank you all for your love and prayers for me. I love you all.
