Fri. 27th - I have to say a big thank you to Justincm - my buddy that keeps my English in check. Well - hoping that Brent doesn't get sick didn't work - he is sick! Fever, chills, stomach pains & diarrhea. Poor soul was down and out all day. I went to the Post Office with him this morning because he felt so awful, just to be on the safe side. I saw the cats in front of the fish market that he's always telling me about. They are totally wild and had a little scrap with each other while I was there - good entertainment!. Brent spent the rest of the day in bed and the bathroom!!! I worked on end of month stuff and since we are having Area Office visitors tomorrow, I went over everything with a damp bleach cloth hoping to get rid of any bugs. We received the sad news that our dear friend Lilja Ellis passed away. She will be sorely missed.
Sat. 28th - Brent is still down, so the Assts. went to the airport to pick up Pres. & Sis. Charles and Elder & Sis. Wirthlin. I saw them later in the day when they came up to see the Mission Office. Elder Wirlthlin is soon to be a Mission President so he was very interested in the workings of our mission. A very quiet day otherwise.
Sun. 29th - Brent is a little bit better. He actually went to meetings because he was supposed to Conduct (nearly all of the Branch leadership was away). He did it, but he really shouldn't have. He's hardly eaten anything the last two days, but felt like he should try to eat something, so I made him some conji and it seem to go down nicely, but just kept on going through!!!
Mon. 30th - Brent is a little better still today, but the food is still going through too quickly. He tried some Imodium (just half a dose) which laid him flat for a while - he reacts so strongly to medication!! Rick & Renee's two little guys, Myles and Byron, are having surgery today to tonsils and adenoids. We learned that Brenda & Dave and kiddies will be coming over here next March - terrific.
The flowers are going nuts here - so many news ones to us - the temperature today was 31C. Don't know what this flower is called. Brilliant!
