Mysterious Illness

Today I am ill. I was alright through class but it got worse through the day and I ended up sleeping most of the afternoon and evening, and not even attempting eating even though it was house-group potluck night because everything was tasting like sawdust and basically I’m sleeping until my body decides to behave and wakes itself back up.

Please give me lots of sympathy and chicken noodle soup and soda crackers and ginger ale. My inner drama queen thrives on it even though I may be dying of this mysterious illness… (read as “illness that’s probably just a simple flu”…)

I’ll be home for… VEDUC?

Today was the first day of December, which means it was also the first day of VEDUC (Vlog EveryDay Until Christmas). For those of you who somehow don’t know, I have a youtube channel that I upload video-blogs (vlogs) to every two-four weeks or so. I’m approaching my third “vlogiversary” (Dec. 3) this year so that’s kinda fun!

Anywho, here’s VEDUC, day 1. (Filmed Friday evening with the fam)

Have a great day!

A Hard Day

Today was a hard day. Had a bit of a weepy morning and was going to call in sick for my work shift after church to help at home some more but almost all the other people who could’ve taken my shift were sick or injured so I had to come in. (It never rains, but it pours…) Mum went to the emergency room when I was at work which terrified me, I thought she must be dying. Thankfully it wasn’t because symptoms had gotten drastically worse, it was just that they weren’t getting any better and she had a fever so Dad decided it needed to get checked out by a doctor. Then they had to wait forever (seriously like over four and a half hours) to see someone and forever (over another hour) to get a bit of a vague result (some kind of infection) so on my end it was just waiting for news of what was going on and passing it on to people (dad’s phone kept going out of service in the hospital so it was really hard to know what was happening) and it’s really stressful being alone and feeling helpless (and I’d already cleaned the house so I started on homework as a distraction).

Through this all though, today at church and the responses on my tweets last night and today, I’ve really felt the support of friends and it’s been really appreciated! Thank you to everyone who’s praying for us and thinking of us. Hopefully the doctors will be able to give us a final answer as to what’s going on soon. In the meantime, mum’s got an unexpected overnighter at the hospital that she’s spending alone. Please continue to keep her in your prayers and pray for wisdom for the doctors as they try to find out whats happening in her body. Thank you again and again for all of your support and prayers! (feel free to keep in mind that every time I see you in person or you send me a tweet or facebook message about praying or being there for us, I’m probably tearing up and I’m not someone who shows emotion frequently, so if that’s motivation, then by all means…)

Talk to you tomorrow!
