Marianne had to go through some treatments that caused her great pain, nausea, limited diet and many other things.  She has been out of work for several weeks at this point.  Megan is her co-worker.

May 21
Megan told me that several children asked when I was returning. All of them I knew except for one, a boy named Jose. I have no idea who he is, yet he asked about me and wanted to know when I was coming back to work. Now I can't wait to return because I have to find out who Jose is! I might call more often just to talk to the kids and let them know I am okay. I miss their voices and their antics and all the joy they bring to my life, all of the children, especially the one named Jose!

It has been quite a time since we got back from the Conference.  Basically both Joe and I are not feeling well, but limping on until today when we both gave up.

I had gotten a refill of my thyroid medication right before I left.  But I still had a few pills in my old bottle so that's the one I took with me.  The day after I came home I took the last one in the old bottle and threw it away.  Then I went to get the new bottle out.  And I couldn't find it.  I searched everywhere and it was no where to be found.

Joe found an older prescription on the kitchen table.  It was 100 mcg and I now take 112 mcg but I figured something was better than nothing while I looked for the new ones, so I took that for several days until I finally found the new ones yesterday.

I was OK the first day, a little tired the second day, and have slept almost non-stop since then.  Today I didn't even get showered and dressed!  I am hoping to get my energy back once the new dosage kicks in.  But from experience I know it takes about a week.

Well at least I'm catching up on my sleep!

Joe has another upper respiratory infection.  He is feeling miserable, running a fever, pain in his sinuses and chest, and an upset stomach.  He has promised me to go to the doctor tomorrow.

Oh my, we are falling apart!  And May is such a busy month!  Joe preached on Sunday and I taught my class yesterday but what a time we had doing it.

After Bible Study yesterday Debbie, Donna and I went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch.  I was feeling too tired to even care.  I think I said about 5 words the whole lunch.  On the way home Donna asked me if I was OK because I was so quiet and Debbie carried the whole conversation.

When I got home I went to bed and slept for four hours.  I just got up after sleeping for three hours now.  I'm going to get something to eat and then go back to bed.  Joe doesn't even want dinner.

So please pray for us.  We both need to get well fast because there's a LOT going on.

Have a good night.
