As for the blood work. We got them while in exchanges and then realized that it was all in Spanish and didn't´understand anything, So we took them to our bishops wife and what I understood from her is that one of my hormones is out of whack. She told us that with it some effects are hair loss, weight loss and dry skin all of which I had and still have a bit of. Finally some answers. Then she said that I needed to have more analysis done. Oh dear and that she would call her doctor. I told her that in interviews that Wed. (this was on Thurs) Pres. Thurgood told me that when I get the results to call the mission doctor. Long story short we called him. I tried to explain what I could and gave him the number of the bishops wife so she could explain it more. Now we are just waiting to hear back from him to see what the next step will be. . .Oh what a roller coaster it has been. As far as being sick goes (besides the cold that both my comp and I have because it is FREEZING here right now) my energy is back and the vertigo is pretty much gone, my stomach is still not normal and I think I am still losing weight giving the fact that I don't fit in ANYTHING. Like my ring doesn't even fit anymore. hehe oh the adventures of the mission. I told Hna Medina that I have never had anything like this happen in my life, then I thought about it and said well never in my life have I been on a mission. haha good times, good times.
Also we had to go to Buenos Aires again for my visa papers . .(a lot easier from La Plata, catching the train from La Plata and ending up in the HUGE train station in Buenos Aires. Anyway, to sum it up we went to one place, they said we needed to go to immigration to get something done, we went there they said that something was missing and dates were expired (because if I had everything set and ready that would be way too easy, right?) so we have to go back on the 22nd. haha btw this all happened Wed. we caught the 7:30 train, were in Buenos Aires by 9:15ish, met the missionary couple and a couple other missionaries caught the bus did it all, then we had to leave to get back for interviews at 2:00. Hna Medina and I caught the subway (yea they have a subway in Buenos Aires) to get back to Constitution train station to catch the train to La Plata, arriving at the capilla with time to spare luckily, After interviews we met the Hnas in the church we all went to have lunch at the members house and went to work. It was quite the day that is for sure.
Sat. we had lunch with some members and their friend who was an inv. before we found out when we went to share a thought and he asked if he could get his Book of Mormon. ha we ended up teaching and testifying, we invited him to church but he said that he didn't have much interest. So Sunday we were a little shocked and a lot excited to see him walk in the doors all dressed in a suit and tie with the members. It was awesome and we finally had an investigator in Church. ha Fasting and praying work!!!!
Anywho, I hope you had fun reading only part of our many adventures this week, can't wait to see what this week brings.
Love you all!
