Week four, get behind me.

Well, the good news is my cellulite is almost gone.

The bad news is I spent yesterday in the hospital receiving hydration and antibiotics through an IV.

(The worst news is that I puked on two people. I was on the bus from Santa Familia to Belmopan trying to get my Visa renewed. Antonia put the window down, but it was too late. I put my hand over my mouth and ran to the front of the bus while Antonia yelled, “Stop the bus!” I jumped out while the bus was still moving. Everyone watched me get sick on the side of the road. That’s when Antonia decided it was time to visit Belmopan General.)

Today I am home and feeling much better, thank you.
I moved to Antonia’s house, where, unfortunately there is no internet. Updating might be less frequent. I have to roam the open streets for a signal- or just walk to Davids. BUT, on the plus side, I’ll be healthier here, we think.

Some other tidbits from week four:

  • Ben called from Boot Camp. He used his whole 8 minutes to tell me that he’s proud of me. (He’s the nicest brother.) His birthday is February 16th, and we are trying to send him some love. If you would like to mail Ben a birthday letter, send it to:PRIVATE BENJAMIN WILSON
    RN #242
    D Company 1-19 IN
    9075 Holcomb
    Ft. Benning, GA 31905
  • Elaine called from Germany. I miss her.
  • Mr. Gay (my French uncle) called from France. He received the picture book, and said, “Bwoooookie? Elan. Bwooookie photo. Happy. Happy. Happy. Bwoooookie resemble Karen. Happy. Happy. Bwooooookie and Elan. Photo. Thank you very much Bwooookie.”

This weekend I am supposed to go to the Blue Hole and the Belize Zoo if I am feeling better. I really hope to be feeling better.

Thank you so much for the prayers, phone calls, emails and letters.
I miss you.

  1. I’m GLAD you’re pushing through. I’m RELIEVED you’re feeling better. I’m HAPPY you are at Antonia’s. I’m SAD that you won’t have easy Internet access. I’m PROUD that Ben’s proud of you. I’m EXCITED to see what else God has planned. I’m TOUCHED that Mr. Gay called you; HE CALLED ME TOO! Awwwww! I’m BLESSED to call you daughter…I’m FORTUNATE to call you friend!


  2. Brooke, I’ve been watching for a new post and praying for you! You have the most incredible experiences — this one is not one that I would want to do, but it is neat that you got to see Belmopan General.

    I am so grateful that you are feeling better — God is so good!

    I hope you will still be able to spend time with Sabrina; it sounded like you had so much fun with her. As if you aren’t already a ‘celebrity’ in Santa Familia, by staying with Antonia you are going to meet everyone. How many of the nurses and doctors did she know in Belmopan?

    Keep the faith, sister! Jennifer and Betsy are praying for you, too!

    In Him–


  3. I’m glad you’re home from the hospital. Keep resting and feel better soon. I wonder what kind of cool animals they have at the Belize zoo?
