Not quite what I thought...

I was sure that I was going to church today, but when I had a rough night with a sore throat and a cough, I just felt like I couldn't go...and possibly expose myself to more germs. (I have never been paranoid about germs, but right now, with a lowered immune system, I have to be more careful.) So I was bummed out and couldn't go to any of Church. I always feel like I'm missing out big time when I can't go.

I also struggled today with swallowing a pill for my cold--it seemed like it took me most of the afternoon to finally not have any more repurcussions from just trying to swallow it. I kept gagging on it, and kept feeling like I had an obstruction in my throat. I think part of it is my swallowing problems, part of it is my stomach, and part of it is my own mental attitude. I am so paranoid about taking pills right now. I am so afraid that I won't be able to swallow them. I feel somewhat better from my cold--hoping that I can beat that right away.

Brady and Spence served me the sacrament, and my friend, Charlotte Portanova, came to visit. Jodie stayed with me all afternoon to make sure that I was okay! Thank heavens for my kids--they help me so much. Thank heavens for Spence also--yesterday he had the craziest day--everything broke on him here, he took Brady to his basketball game, he had all kinds of things to get ready for Sunday, and he had to go out and go grocery shopping for me at 11:00 last night. He deserves an award every day! Have a good Monday. Love to all, Louise


  1. you're whole family deserves awards! we wish we were closer so that we could help, but our kids have your name engraved in their prayers, i guess that's about all we can do from here... and send possitive energy (minus the germs;) hope that you kick that cold bug quickly! and congrats on emily. we're due the sameish time!

  2. Hope you're feeling better really soon! Both my kids and Dad asked about you several times all weekend. Dad keeps shaking his head and saying how you, of all people, don't deserve this. He wanted a total update on you, Spence, and all your kids. I guess I had underestimated his compassion. I know how much you miss church when you can't go, but with all that everyone loves you, you would have been smothered with hugs AND potential germs!! I'm sending long distance hugs to you right now! Can you feel 'em? And they are germ-free!!! ;)
    Love you loads, Deb

  3. I was very sorry that you weren't at church today. We missed you! I was looking forward to seeing you today and was very disappointed to hear that you were sick. Hope you get over this cold quickly. You're STILL in our prayers. Every day.

  4. I'm sorry to hear about your sore throat & cold Louisa and hope you feel better quickly. Here's another germ-free California hug for you!
    You probably didn't know that we had germ-free hugs in California, did you :)
    Love, Suzy

  5. So you can reccommend the movie "Secretariat"? The previews looked interesting to me. We probably will never get to go but I'll put it on our list. Did you ever see "Nanny McPhee II"? I heard that was good and enjoyed the 1st one. Love to you and family, Becky

  6. Weezy, I missed you yesterday - everyone did. You are always the talk of the ward ;-) Hugs and prayers to you today. Love, Lindy Lou

  7. Sorry about the pill .. ugh .. that dounds a drag. And sorry you couldn't go to church. Hope things are going better now. I was hoping to call you soon. Let me know when is a good time for you. Love you!!! Sue
