To make a long story short, I woke up in the morning and couldn't even stand. I tried to put my blush on cause I looked at myself and thought "ew I am soo pale!" but I couldn't cause I didn't have the strength. After getting up for the fourth time, I managed to get my other flip flop on, and I prayed that God would allow me to make it to the Infirmary. On the walk over there I could barely see, everything was amplified and seriously God was the only thing that got me there without falling. When I walked in the nurse was all chipper like, "Hi! how are----" then she looked at me and was like, "you need to sit down." So I really don't remember much after that, except I dry heaved a little bit (Sorry if that was too much info) and I was sent to an isolated cabin for the day. I slept pretty much the entire day and was feeling much better, so the nurse was ready to send me home. As I was sitting there listening to the nurse talk to me about the medicine I should take, I started to feel dizzy again, and the nurse told me I was turning green. So I laid down and passed out. They ended up giving me oxygen and an IV and after a few hours, a urine test, tons of blood pressure tests, a doctors examination and some Cheerios, they said that I was just really over worked and dehydrated. They said I needed to take it easy today and drink lots of water. So today I've mainly been reading and been on the internet all day. Erin and I made a video about our adventure yesterday. Check it out!

was quite eventful. I had just returned home from an amazing weekend at home. My family's last sunday at Grace! So weird. Way more emotional than I had thought it was going to be. But it was so good to see family and friends and hang out for a weekend. Anyways On Tuesday I had started feeling sick, and there has been this flu going around that people have been sent home for having. But I knew it wasn't anything like that cause it just felt like a head cold with a bit of a cough. So I decided to wait it out and see how I was feeling in the morning.
