Ok, I know today is not my day to post but it's really late and nobody else posted today so I thought I'd give y'all a quick update on me and how I'm doing since you are all so wonderful and you care about me and you pray for me when I need it. I love you girls so much!

Anyway, I am doing much better healthwise than I was when I last posted and that makes me happy. I still hurt a lot but it's not nearly so bad as it was and I'm not feeling totally exhausted anymore. I stayed home from church today and slept in late and that really helped a lot. I totally needed it.

And when my dad came home from church he sat down with me and told me that he felt I needed to go to AE even if it kills me. Yes, those are his exact words. He said there would be dire detrimental effects for me if I don't go and I have to go. So I have this super excited feeling to know that I am going for sure but I also feel a little bit reluctant because, as much as I really want to go (I mean, REALLY want to go) I'm worried about what will happen if my health isn't good. I just don't want to miss anything I guess. I remember being so worried about throwing up at EXCEL because I didn't want to spend 24 hours in my room because of everything I would miss! :-) But I am going no matter what because my daddy said so and I'm just trying not to think about all that could happen and just be excited about seeing y'all again!

Things were really bad this week and I just didn't feel like it was ever going to get better and all I wanted was to go back to EXCEL and be with my friends. Well, there are still a lot of things going on but I don't feel nearly so stressed about them as I did. Everytime things got really bad that was when God would give me a little smile from Him to let me know that everything was going to be ok. Sometimes it was in an email. Sometimes it was on facebook. Sometimes it was a letter or a phone call or text message. And sometimes it was a comment on a blog post. God worked through you, my friends, by showing that He cared when you showed that you cared.

It's amazing, you don't really think that God is using you when you sincerely ask someone if they're ok but He really is. Our God is a God that answers prayers. I have so many people praying for me that, whenever I think about it, I feel so loved. And that has helped me so much in getting through each day. Thank you for praying for me. I appreciate it so much!

I love you!
Ps 147:3

Yay! Kiddo is coming to AE! I'm so glad that you posted to tell us sweetheart. (I don't think post day is really so very set anyway.) I'm still praying for you and I'll see you in exactly 3 weeks! :D
