Note: We waited to hear from Holly for our semi-annual phone call with bated breath, and it was even more anticipated as Mother's Day was doubly exciting for us as it was also Colin's 18th birthday. But alas, after waiting around for a long while, with no call coming in...we finally heard from a former companion of hers who kindly let us know that Holly was in the hospital and unable to call. She had another bad bout with kidney stone pain last week and had to be hospitalized, but apparently she was released and we've scheduled our make up call for tomorrow. So at least we got a note today, as I wasn't expecting one.
Well, as we are skyping tomorrow and also you pretty much already know what`s been happening, this email will be V short. Also on account of the fact that I can`t think super well. Post IV lyfe.
Alright, summary: So this week is pretty well summed up by my #kidneystone. Hurt like a mother, wasn`t passing, had to go to the hospital, got admitted to the hospital, they gave me IVs and it was traumatic but I didn`t cry (much mature. so adult.) Then the pain passed after like 24 hrs of that, but then they wanted more blood tests, yada yada, I went back to the hospital today, but now it`s looking like I`m free. Although I still have two more kidney stones, wtfreak. But it`s been interesting to deal with a physical health trial, on account of I`ve never really had one of those. And it`s a whole other kind of hard. But I`m grateful that Heavenly Father is giving me SO MANY WAYS to understand the atonement better. See Alma 7:11-12:
