I have definitely not improved since last week.

Well this week really nothing happened again. I returned to my area. I have only been able to work a few hours a day taking rests in between and things like that, so the work hasn’t really been able to progress. So that is kind of frustrating. I was going to have to wait another week until I go back to the capital, but I got a call today saying to come back tomorrow! Because Hna. Torres thinks it is better for her and Pres. Torres to be able help me take care of it now than to have the new Pres. and his wife help. Because they will be all stressed out and won’t really know how to help as much. So I am headed back down to the capital tomorrow morning to visit with a real doctor. Haha. So we will see what happens, because I have definitely not improved since last week. When I went to the doctor in Cobán he thought it was my appendix....but I did a urine and blood test, and it came out negative for anything for the appendix. The doctor in Cobán said maybe an obstruction in my liver or my gall bladder. But who knows. I need to get like an ultra sound or something to figure it out completely. The doctor said its nothing too serious, it just needs to get taken care of and I will be good to go. It definitely could be a parasite... but don’t you think I would at least have diarrhea or something like that? And the pain is on the right side of my stomach, not really near my actual stomach at all, so it is super weird...who knows. I am going to a really good medical facility tomorrow to get it all done with. But I think everything will be perfectly fine once they figure out what is going on...So no need to worry.

Sounds like you guys had tons of fun in Colorado! Ha it’s crazy to think that Turek and Larsen and all those guys are home now. I have thought about doing that with all the corte and the huipils (blouse) but it costs a lot. It’s like almost 50 dollars for each thing of corte and it makes maybe 2 skirts, if not only 1. But I will see...maybe. I do want to do it though. But I will definitely get some ties made, for the 3 of us to be matching. I can go in on that with other missionaries because one corte can make like 20 ties...Oh but something better....I am going back to the cap, and if it's possible I am going to try and get a tailored suit made with a vest and everything. They are super nice and only like 100 bucks. So if I do that, could that be my early birthday present? But I will let you know if I order it ok?

I’m glad that you are feeling better mom! And I really like the pics you sent, they are super awesome. Well I love you and I really wish there was more news to tell you. But that’s all for now. I am sending some pictures of the house we live. It’s definitely the nicest out of all the places I have lived in. And it’s really really big.

But anyways, that’s all for now, I will talk you next week! Have a great one!
Keep the faith
Stay Strong
