|Elder Johnson, Elder Acheson's trainer with a very sick Elder Acheson|
Hello friends and family!
Just to update you all, since September 12th I have been sick with pneumonia. I haven't been able to work since then. I'm grateful for my good companion who helped me when I passed out, collapsed and needed other assistance. A member took us the ER to get checked out. I was so dehydrated and nauseous that I needed an IV to get hydrated. I have been stuck in bed. I have never been this sick before in my life. Dear Pres. and Sister Brown, our mission presidents check on me almost daily. They are great.
I am still pretty sick. I have lost about 14 pounds now! I have been in bed all week. The only thing we really did was go up to Bordeaux for zone conference. I got special permission from the mission president to skype my family. So I did that! It was weird to see them because it was a fast decision. But it was great to talk to them and show that I am alive:)
I got a blessing from President Brown, and sister brown gave me a bag filled with little treats and things to help me get better:). They are really great!
I was also able to to say a goodbye to my first trainer, Elder Cameron Johnson, who will be complete his mission at the end of this transfer.
We came home, and then saw the doctor again for a check up. She took one listen of my lungs and said that I was still sick. Yep! Still feel like it!
I don't really know how long until I'm better, but thanks for the prayers on my behalf! I love you all!
Love Elder Acheson
