As only Elder Marble could put this. . .

So last Wednesday night, I woke up at about 11:30 with an amazing pain in my side. It killed. So I was just like, come on, go back to sleep, you just rolled over wrong, dont worry, but it would not go away. Basically sucked. So I finally woke Elder Miles up at midnight and he gave me a blessing and I felt a little relief, but not enough to sleep, so we called the mission nurse, and she told me that I had to go over to the hospital.

So we headed out of the house and took a taxi to the hospital. It was so weird being outside of the house at night. The whole ride over I was just laying in the back seat groaning. No matter what position that I got in, the pain would just not go away. We get to the emergency room, and it is pretty painful. I really let them know it hurt. So we waited for about half an hour before the doctor gave me an iv, but during that time the pain got so bad that I actually threw up. Gross, but true. I figure you all want to know the whole story. So the doctor checked me out, got an xray, and they hooked me up to the iv and gave me some awesome pain medicine. About that time sister nielson and the mission nurse sister groberg were there by my side.

Poor Elder Miles, he was running around all over the place trying to help me out. Sister Nielson said that I am going to be an awesome husband because I will know somewhat of the pain of childbirth. It felt so good to get that pain medicine in there, and like five minutes after it was injected, I was out. Then I got an ultrasound and they saw the stones. It was crazy, they hooked me up with a ton of medicine and sent me home and said to come back in a few days for a checkup. All of this work only cost me $15. How cool is that?

Basically, not too much pain after that, the medicine works good so when I went back for the checkup, I didnt hurt at all unless they poked my kidney. Got another ultrasound and it turns out that I am pregant with a boy on the way. Haha, not really, but it turns out the stones are gone. Yes! Today is my final checkup and I pray that everything goes well. So it is a miracle and I really appreciate the Atonement and the pain that my savior suffered for me.

Anyways, I am so happy to be with Elder Miles again. My area, ShiLin, would still count as part of the taipei city. It is only about a thirty minute subway ride there. We had zone conference and it was awesome. I played a big role in it, taught a lot of things and it was so great to see so many people. Elder Anderson is a zone leader, everyone is growing up. Ilove youall, time is up. Elder John Marble ShiLin
