"Back" in the office

Fun story for y'all. My former companion Elder Morrison. Why was I talking to him you ask? Because I'm in the stinkin' office.

So long story short, I've been struggling with some back problems for close to 2 weeks now. I went to the doctor last Monday and was told to take injections, but while doing so I couldn't be walking around all day every day...that doesn't work for a missionary haha :)
So Elder Wait and I managed to do a division with the members of our ward on Tuesday, I hung out with Ricardo for most of the day and Elder Wait went out with Cristiano (He just got back from his mission in Set. so you can imagine he was excited :) haha ).

We realized however that that wouldn't work to do for the 6 DAYS that I had to take the injections. We called the assistants and then president and he decided that since there are three executives in the office, one would come up and stay with Elder Wait so they could keep working, and I came down to Porto to stay in the mission home. Sonia, who takes care of the mission home and Sister Amorim were both excited that I was there haha :) They said that they were going to be coddling me :) haha It was nice to be taken care of. I kept having to switch. stand up and walk around a little, lay down sit down. I slept a lot. It was nice. Sister Amorim marked me an appointment at a better hospital with a orthopedic specialist, in spines, he prescribed even more drugs and an MRI. This morning I got the MRI, which was one of the strangest events of my life haha :) And the results don't come until Friday, and so the next appointment can't be marked until next Monday. So we're going to see what happens to me... :)

I left the mission home Friday night and am staying with Elder Morrison and Erhardt, the executives and hanging out in the office again haha :) Glad that I got out when I did haha, this place is nuts!

I got to see José Alves this week :) that was cool. He passed the sacrament on Sunday :)

So this week's just been about that. Not much to report. Just back in Porto, loving the rain :)

Hope y'all have a good week!
