Day 151

Hey folks! It feels like it's been too long!

I'm feeling much better today... woo! I even got up and dressed today. I feel as though I am out of the worst part... this past weekend was horrible.

But as my mom keeps saying, I need to take it easy so that I don't relapse... which is probably true. So, I continue to watch a lot of tv/movies and I continue to read a lot.

Thankfully now I am awake enough to do that... this past weekend I pretty much lay around feeling miserable.

Thanks to all you who have been praying!

Micah moo came and posed for me today... what a sweetie :)

So, I quit my job... before I even started it... Yes, that's so sad... But I was able to transfer it over to my sister who was looking for a job. So, my younger sister has a job, while I am unemployed. That's okay though... So far I've gotten over $3,000 in graduation gifts (thanks to my wonderful grandparents who gave me more than 1/2 of that :))... So that should more than cover my class this summer and my fall semester. In the fall I can go to work and save up as much as possible and pay for the Spring semester. Then, in the Summer, I'll find a full time job and work and save as much as possible for the next school year.

It feels good to have a plan... although I'm sure this plan will probably change.

God really does provide though :)

Other happenings of this past weekend were not so great. Sunday it was my mom's birthday. I dragged myself out of bed so that I could join them for lunch.. but really I was out of it ALL day. Sunday afternoon, I stayed home and my family went on a walk on some trails here in the springs... on said walk they passed right by a rattle snake. Andrew and Poncho were the closest to the snake. Andrew jerks P away from the snake because he is trying to sniff it, and then they continue on their walk. Soon after that P starts whining. All of a sudden he just stops walking. My mom starts thinking that he was bit by the rattle snake. So, she calls a friend and finds a 24 hour vet. They rush him over to the vet... and the vet shaves his neck looking for a bite mark... She couldn't find one so then they just assume that Andrew must have jerked P a little too hard, and so the vet tells my family to take P home and just let him rest.

The next day, my mom decides to give him a bath... when she was drying him off she sees that his neck is just all black and blue... she can't decide if it is a bruise or if it could be internal bleeding. Thinking that it may be internal bleeding she rushes back to the vet. Later on, the veterinarian concludes that the rattle snake must have scathed P, and so he was injected with venom. He's been at the vet hospital since Monday night. Sadly, today we found out that there is not much more they can do for him, so he's either going to die within the next week, or he is magically going to get better.

The hardest part for me is just watching my little siblings cry. Poncho was thier friend. We just keep thanking God that it wasn't one of the kids who were bit by the snake.

Anything could happen over the next week... we'll keep hoping and praying.

This is so sad. I'm really sorry for you and your family regarding Poncho.

I had wondered what would come of this job you had taken but were too sick to show up for your first day. I'm glad for you and for the family that your sister was willing and available to take over for you. And what great provision to have been gifted so much for your graduation!

I'm very glad to hear you're feeling a little better:)
