Marriage and Mono

So, I just found out I have mono. And I'm getting married in 17 days. Why? I wanna know why?! My doctor is not terribly optimistic and thinks I will still be in pretty bad shape on the day of my wedding--complete with the puffy eyelids that I've been sporting since the beginning of last week. Yeah. That would be cute in the wedding pictures. However, I refuse to believe I'll stay sick that long with my killer immune system. After all, of everyone that went to our ward's Halloween party, I am one of only about four other people that didn't come down with nasty stomach flu the next day. And if it was food poisoning from the drink like some people think, I am the only one who drank it and didn't get sick. I haven't been to the doctor since I was in fifth grade, and I eat my fruits and vegetables. That means my immune system is in pretty good shape, right? And to top it all off, I've got people praying for me and that's the most powerful medicine of all.

Poor Rebecca! I hope you feel better in time! You know, it's kind of brother who's getting married in 40-some-odd days also came down with mono. He seems to be on the mend, though. And it's only been maybe 2-3 weeks since that whole ordeal started. There's hope yet! I'll pray for you though. And if the symptoms don't subside in time, just know that people are sick for their weddings more often that I think most people realize. Blake, for instance, was very sick in the weeks before we got married, and then came down with the flu on the honeymoon. But we survived. And now it's funny to reminisce about.

By the way, your nephew came over to our apartment for dinner last night. He's a funny one, that Elder King. He kept getting in only-half-joking arguments with his companion on the subject of BYU vs. U of U. We all got a good chuckle out of it. :)
