Sick break!

Well, its safe to say that it has been a less-than-ideal week. 
First Andrew got sick. 
Like, every-30-mins-for-8-hours-throwing-up-sick.
Not. fun.
So neither of us slept. At all. 
Then his fever came, poor guy. 
Then the yellow eyes. At this point we called our friend who promptly said "Go to the hospital. Now."
So off we went. We spent 5 hours in emergency, trying to communicate that he needs blood work done and no he isn't still throwing up and yes he needs blood-work and yes we know it might have been street food that made him throw up and no, please don't take pictures of us when you think we aren't looking.
You know, the usual. 
Once we found out that his kidneys are find and its probably not malaria, we went home. 
The next morning, I woke up sick. 
The have-to-stay-flat-on-your-back-or-you'll-throw-up sick. Oh the dizziness, the nausea! That has to be one of the worst feelings! 
Then came the cold, which had been fighting its way out for a few days and finally won. 
Enter in sneezy, sore throat so hoarse I cant talk, sinus pain and all that excitement! 

So that sums up our week! Im still not feeling great, I get dizzy and weak if I stand for too long, and I sound like a man, but we are going to try our hardest to do ability camp in the morning. We had to cancel it twice already this week, sadly. 
We are not fans of being sick, its very frustrating when you could be out there, helping the kids! There is so much to do here, why waste a single minute being sick?! 

Anyway, thank you to those who have been praying. A new festival started across the street, in the temple. It will go for 8 days. Its loud and starts at 6pm and goes late into the night. Andrew and I are currently camped out in the living room, trying to get as far away from the noise as possible! Oh the joys of living in India! 

Thankfully, we have been sleeping fairly well (thanks God!) and we cant wait to see the kids tomorrow!
