Creeping Crud

It's that time of year when everyone is sick. Last week Rural Pastor was sick and actually tried to chant part of the service, but that didn't work out too well. My classmates have been sick as well. Now it's my turn. A student who is a parish nurse referred to it as the "creeping crud." Wednesday night I started having a voice change. Let's put it this way, if I was in the choir, I'd be a bass. That is still the case voice-wise, but now I feel like I've been run over by a truck as well.

I talked to Rural Pastor yesterday and assured him that though I could not chant the kyrie, hymn of praise, or do the prayers, I would nonetheless be in attendance today--or so I thought...until I I woke up this morning, feeling every bit as bad as yesterday. So, I'm home and not having fun.

Thanks guys. I'm seeing the doctor tonight. I think I have a sinus infection. Thanks for your prayers and concern.

I'm excited about Thanksgiving. There is a service in the chapel in the morning. Then at 2, for those of us on campus, we're having a "Remnant Thanksgiving." I'm looking forward to that time of fellowship and yummy food. Blessings.
