I didn't really feel anything the rest of the day but around 4:00 PM after arriving home from my sister's house, things just got progressively worse. My whole body just felt like I was recovering from being hit by a bus! Every muscle ached severely with any movement I seemed to have made. I thought at first it was because I did a thorough work out the day before. It wasn't. That may have helped aid the pain but it wasn't the cause.
With in a couple hours more symptoms were popping up. Next the a sharp headache, body chills/twitches, fever with constant heat radiating from my head and neck, frozen hands and feet, swollen tonsils, tender eyes, and all that good stuff. I was praying hard again and just a little nervous thinking about the concert coming up and being so sick. I thought of Mama Gina's words of wisdom back in Mercy Ministries, "Take your Vitamin C!" So I started fumbling around my room trying to find the bottle I knew I had somewhere. Found them! But they were expired back in 2008! ... Well, I get nervous around expired things so I called my mother to ask if it was still okay to take them. She was busy so I didn't get my answer.
Around 7:30 PM I was just ready to call it a night and tried my hardest to see if I could go to bed. I laid there for a couple hours and tried using some of my tactics to fall asleep. Still wide awake, around 9:20 my mother called me back. I told her what was going on and she felt lead to pray with me, and she also assured me it was still okay to take the Vitamin C :) It was just the weirdest thing though after that prayer. I really felt like it hit home and my body was receiving it! I just really felt something! It was short lived and after hanging up the phone I finally fell asleep about an hour later.
The next morning I felt waaaaay better! I'm still a little tender in the neck area and have a few coughs here and there, but man is there a difference! I'm still not 100% but I bet I'll be pretty close as Wednesday's rehearsal come to start! YAY GOD!! :)
Man is God is good! I know I can't thank Him enough for what He has done for me, and especially the miracle He performed overnight, but I want to give Him as much praise as I can. He deserves it! I'm just amazed by Him right now!
