I love my friends. Yesterday was a really rough day for me. It was insanely busy, and then I got some horrible news. I went to Winter Fantasia Friday night. It's like college prom. I managed to hide my pump. I've never worn it to a formal dance before. Pictures to come later. Saturday, I had to be up at 7am, after about 4 hours of sleep. I worked from 8 to noon on this big fundraiser for the local children's hospital. Then I went home and worked until 6pm with my parents. We got a lot done. On my way out from the dorm, I stopped and checked the mail. Big mistake. Inside was my rejection letter for the nursing program. I kept it together until I got home. I am really disappointed. Nursing is what I always dreamed of doing. I have no idea what my back up plan is. I am going to apply next semester, but after that, I don't know. Nursing is the only thing I want to do with my life. I am a lot less upset now than I was. But I am still devastated. I knew there was a pretty good chance I wouldn't get it, but I didn't really believe it. My friends pulled together to help me. When I got back to campus, they bought me ice cream. They listened to me cry about it. Then they took me to see the on campus movie. They have been so supportive of me. I don't know what I would do without them.
In other news, both my dad and roommate are making improvements. My roommate came back Friday. She does have an infection, but it can easily dealt with an oral antibiotic. My dad is also doing better. The pain is less, but he also has a stronger pain killer. He is sleeping much better. He goes to a neuro surgeon on Wednesday. Thanks for all the prayers!
