On Sunday January 11, on my sister Maryn’s Birthday it started. “The sickness.” Both Karl and I got the stomach flu. I took my second sick day since May, when I was hired the next day. It took Karl and I a few days to get back on the food wagon. It was like a celebration! On Sunday I started to get a red bump on my eye. I sty. The worst thing about sty’s is that you can’t wear makeup with them, so everyone thinks you are sick because you aren’t wearing makeup. On Wednesday 21st the migraines started and then the cold, and then on Friday…I got the stomach flu again. I took my third sick day since the beginning of my employment. I’ve had to miss Church, work, Enrichment activities, an opening social, a ward temple trip, and Devo’s birthday party. It has been a total bummer.
Then, on Friday afternoon, it happened. A tender mercy of the Lord! Gabi’s package! (Before I go too far though I would say that Krysta and Zac have done a lot to take care of us too, thanks guys!)
