on tuesday i woke up with the worst headache ever. and the day went on it just kept getting worse. we called the mission doctor and she told us to go to the hospital. i didnt wanna go but i couldnt walk straight so after all the important vists we went to the hospital. we sat in the waiting room for a good hour and a half cuz the health care down here is the best!!!! my stomach started hurting. when we finally got to a doctor he took my temp and i had a temp of 39 in celsius which is bad i guess cuz the everybody in the room just gave me this look like "your going to die". they decided to test my blood and give me an IV. the nurse started by sticking me in the right hand but couldnt get any blood. so she tried my left arm twice, the second time she started moving the needle around and it was at the moment i learned what pain was and i remembered why i didnt like needles. then she started milking my arm like i was a dry cow. my companion couldnt stand it so he left the room. she still couldnt get anything so she asked me if i even had blood. i said yes then i asked her if she was a real nurse? not really but i wanted to. she next tried my right elbow and she finally found a vain. after that horrible experience i had blood all over my shirt and my favorite belt and some in my tie.
i was on the IV for a couple of hours and they didnt find any thing wrong with my blood. they said i had a stomach infection and gave me a bunch of drugs to buy. we left the hospital at around 12am. the next morning we went and bought the drugs and i slept the rest of the day.
on thursday my comp and i decided to go out and work but at lunch i noticed a rash on my arm. we called the mission doctor and she said i had an allergic reaction to one of the drugs and sent us back to the hospital. when we got in again the rash had grown to all of my arms and legs so the doctor gave me a shot but it wasnt in the arm... after that we went back to the house again.
friday we finally had a normal working day and saturday too. we found a lot of good new people to teach.
sunday was normal.
today we cleaned our clothes, elder velez gets his hair cut every week and we had a leccion con j a !!! we are getting him ready for his baptism on thursday.
all in all it was a pretty good week, we have been blessed with alot of work!
