Hey everyone,

I would like to give thanks to everyone that said a prayer or worried about me in the last couple of days. I am getting alot better and I feel that I will return to work here in a couple of days.  I have a perisite that was causing all of my woos, but now, I am great.  I am taking so other medications and I am feeling really good.

I am excited to get back to work after my 2 weeks vaction, or rather stay in my house.  I have to say I hated it. I was so bored. I really wanted to just get back to work and keep on trucking, but I am a stubern old fart who needs to work to feel useful.   I am really excited to see what these last couple of weeks hold in store for me. 

I am here in Santa Maria because they wanted me to see the doctor of the mission, Dr. Felipe.  He is really cool. He is a young guy.  He lived in Canada for many years and speaks english fluently.  He said that there is a bug that lives in the waters of Rio Grande do Sul, and more than likely it was that bug that got in to my system and started to mess with me.  I am getting alot better now and so do not worry your pretty little heads off. Alright?  I am going to go back to work here in a couple of days, and then it is off to the races until the end of my mission.
