Prayer Requests

I'm sorry I haven't posted recently- I haven't been doing much reading recently, since this week has been a little hectic at school. I do have a couple prayer requests though, concerning the health of my friends.
First, there's my friend Kim. She's such a dear girl, and always so helpful. The other day, she said her eye was bugging her, but the other eye was the one that looked swolen. She went into the doctor, and she was diagnosed with Bell's palsy. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it is an infection of one of the facial nerves, so half of her face is paralyzed, which makes blinking, talking, and expressing yourself difficult. Though it isn't extremely obvious when talking to her, being a high school girl is hard enough, and I'm sure she's self-concious about it, though she has remained strong through all of this. The prognosis is pretty good, and she should recover. It's just a matter of time.
Then, there's my friend Rae, who thinks she may have mono. Hopefully not, since she was able to make it to school again today, and mono knocks you off your feet, but she feels horrible. Her friend has it, and since I ate after her Sunday night (darn mushrooms!!!) I may, though it's not likely unless she used her fork before she took a bite of the lasagna (and who licks their fork before they take their first bite, really?). In any case, mono is not fun, and being the end of her senior year, she needs to be as healthy as possible.

thanks, Chelsea, and thanks Chelsea's friends :).
I'm home again today (oh boy, missing three periods of bio is not a pretty sight) but I'm going to the doctor so hopefully something can get cleared up there.
As far as I remember I didn't lick my fork!
