The rest of our week was kind of shot for various reasons. So Tuesday was a normal day, but Tuesday afternoon Elder Spencer had to go to the Urgent Care. He'd been puking up blood and hadn't slept for a couple days and just felt awful. Well 3 hours later they say that he needs to go to the hospital to get checked out, and another 4 or 5 hours after that they determine he has appendicitis and needs to get it removed immediately! So he had surgery. Then on Wednesday we went up to Riverside to pick up Elder Mayo, because he'd spent all night at the hospital, and then at the mission home, with Elder Spencer. Later that day, we had to go back up to Riverside because I dinged the car a little backing up in a parking lot. Luckily no damage to other cars, I just hit a carport support. Then on Thursday Elder Herald got sick, and on Friday or Saturday we had to go pick up Elder Spencer from Riverside because Sister Mullen was ready to release him. But because Elder Herald was sick, we couldn't leave him with the person who had a weakened immune system because he just had surgery. So Elder Mayo and Elder Spencer had to stay in at their apartment, and we had to stay in at our apartment with Elder Herald. Elder Haltli and I were each able to go out separately with Elder Brown and his companion for a little bit on Saturday, but we were mostly working in their area.
Transfer day was equally crazy, since we had someone coming or leaving on the hour every hour pretty much all day. We were lucky that the libraries were closed because I'm not sure when we would have been able to e-mail yesterday if we were supposed to do it then. But now everything is getting settled down, just normal meetings today. But I woke up with a scratchy throat and a little bit of a cough, which is how Elder Herald's sickness started. So I'm hoping I can beat it now rather than get sick for a week like he did. We'll just have to see, hopefully we'll have lots of missionary experiences to tell you about next week instead of just another week of staying in or ferrying people around. I'm looking forward to this transfer. I think Elder Goodrich will be a good motivator and I think we'll be pretty diligent and successful as a team.
