Sunday morning started with a fever at 99 degrees F with stomach pains and as the day went by I was at 100 degrees with stomach pains still. I went to the hospital with Christle, Gai, and Travis and by that time, I was at 101 degrees. Once the doctor saw me, he told me that I had a bacterial infection in my stomach and he gave me antibiotics to take for the next few days. Sunday, I was in bed, sleeping the whole day.... No play time with the kids... Monday morning, my fever went down, but my stomach was still hurting and I felt light headed from not eating anything the whole day Sunday.
How was that God’s doing? I could’ve gotten Dengue fever, since there were a lot of people getting it this season. Also, it could’ve been a lot worse than just a fever and stomach pains. The doctors might not have known what was wrong and had me stay at the hospital for a couple days, but It was a quick in and out and the doctor knew what it was and gave me antibiotics. As the day went by, I realized more and more that it wasn’t only those few things. Yes, things could’ve been worse, but God also gave me today to reflect and look back on everything that has happened within the week. Even though today was the last day to spend with the kids at Khaodee and I didn’t get the chance, I got to look back and see the emotions on the kids’ faces as we played evening games, played with them after dinner, waved good bye to them as they headed to school, ate dinner/breakfast with them and so on. All it could do was bring a smile to my face. As dinner came, it was a special dinner, FISH! Too bad I couldn’t eat it, but I had a bit of energy to be there at dinner and hang out with them before we left. Even though I lost out on two days of spending time with the kids, it was still great to see them. All in all, it was God’s doing.
