As this semester has unfolded, my health has remained pretty steady...until about two weeks ago. I haven't been able to breathe through my nose since February; after I got a cold, my nose never cleared even after doing antibiotics and nose sprays constantly. However, about two weeks ago, I started struggling to breathe because of infection in my lungs. I began to get out of breath walking up stairs and going from class to class. I started losing my willpower to work out as often as I should. I even began taking naps and sleeping way more than normal because of a lack of energy. Of course, my coughing also increased dramatically. Therefore, I decided I needed to start a course of IV antibiotics as soon as possible, which happens to be today. My body is exhausted and needing backup, tired of having to fight multiplying bacteria.
I would really appreciate your prayers as I go through this course of IVs. The last time I was on IVs, I was incredibly nauseous and threw up pretty regularly. Pray for a strong stomach. Pray for the IVs to work their magic and for my lungs to recover. Pray for my body to fight the bacteria off well. Most of all, pray for my spirit to stay strong and for me not to get discouraged. Thank you all so much for your love and support!
