Sister Fanning has had five days in a row without a sick stomach. However, her pain level has been higher since stopping the supplements. She decided to add one of the supplements that she stopped last week to her daily routine. She added krill oil, which is the only thing she can take for inflammation.
This morning we were at Mariners Park at 9:00. It is a very nice military park that is available for special functions. The USS Mercy, a hospital ship, is leaving for deployment next week. Today they had a family day before they deploy. They had live music, several tables from organizations, pizza for lunch, and some fun activities for the kids and families. We gave away free international phone cards for the deploying men and women. We also gave away kites for the kids. Our table was very popular. We talked to lots of people. Chaplain Metzger, the command chaplain for Balboa Navy Hospital, stopped by our table and chatted. We discovered that the ship has about 75 merchant marines, who are in charge of safety and ship operations. There are an additional 600 medical personnel. This ship stops at countries that do not have very good medical infrastructures and provides free medical services to the general population.
We left about 2:30 when most of the people began to leave. We drove to Balboa Hospital Pharmacy to pick up Sister Fanning’s pain pills. Their electronic system was down for repairs. We waited about an hour and 15 minutes for the prescriptions. This time she checked to make sure they had entered the refill on one of the prescriptions.
Sister Fanning started to feel unwell while we were waiting at the Pharmacy. We were planning several more stops, but decided to go home. As soon as we got home, we realized we were supposed to pick up some supplements that the chiropractor had ordered. We went down to the office, and Elder Fanning went in to get them.
When we got home Sister Fanning went to sleep. She got up after a few hours. We are guessing that krill oil is one of the things that are possibly causing her sick stomach.
We watched some of the Olympics.
We went to bed early.
