I'm afraid i have more bad news. I was admitted to the hospital in yeongju on sunday because i had acute tonsilitis which closed up my throat and discontionued my ability to breath well. I was in so much pain.. starving but unable to eat and at the mercy of doctors speaking a language i couldn't grasp. For future reference learn the important lingo like allergic and doctorb and medicine BEFORE youi LEAVE ur country.. The room i was in was private thank god. But dirty- yucky dirty. Like all you needed was some clorox on the walls and CLEAN sheets! They provided no clothing.. i mean it was like hostel the sicko movie..i was so scared. Lucky me my phillipina moma staye dthe night with me- she slept on the floor-- that's love. Felicia teacher who is mother hen #2 called my mom and detailed the situation. She's the one that made the call for help for me.. otherwise ya'll.. i dunno what i would've done!

More details later when i'm actually supposed to be doing something other than resting!
was released about and hour ago. My employer was very helpful to me though i was very very sick. I learned that i do not need an operation to yank out my tonsils- i was so glad to hear that! I just wanted to let you know what was happening. My BFF courtney willarrive today and stay with me until her apart ment is ready next week.

But anyways- YES my experience was painfull and terrifying becasue I was frustrated with the language barrier. I now know how to say NO PENICILLIN and ask for water and an english speaking doctor in Korean. But thank heavens God is like Visa Everywhere I want to be! So many people helping turned a bad situation into a learning experience for this new teacher. I'm a little drugged up still but I'm not in pain and very much content--I lost a bunch of weight quickly- and YES MAMA I WILL WATCH WHAT I EAT!.. Most days I eat ramen noodles for breakfast an dinner and lunch at school... Still groggy and very medicated..
