Day 78 | Brett Gets Sick

May 26, 2017

This morning we packed up so that we can head back to Wyoming and pick up our spin dryer which was sent to Sara and Peter’s mailbox in Wyoming. A spin dryer is a super cool contraption that basically wrings out the laundry for you and makes washing clothes by hand a lot easier. I can’t wait to try it!

First we stopped in Rapid City to pick up a few things we really needed and to buy a computer for Brett. He’s gearing up to relaunch one of his online programs and he really needs a computer to be able to keep making progress. The poor guy has been trying to make a living just from his phone!

Unfortunately, I got a “mold hit” on our way to town and had to decontaminate. Decontamination is just part of daily life now. I don’t mind so much except that I hate to see the clean laundry running out so quickly. I guess, I also hate having cold wet hair.

We spent the afternoon and evening driving to Sara and Peter’s place. I started coughing like crazy on the drive. Unfortunately, it was raining so we had to keep the windows closed. I must have been detoxing my lungs because Brett started to feel really awful even though I was feeling just fine.

His head, neck and shoulders were aching and he felt really nauseous. He looked miserable and I started to worry! We finally arrived at around 9:30pm but decided not to stay on Sara and Peter’s land since I was coughing so much. We were worried it might affect Sara.

Brett decided to try decontaminating and within 45 minutes of being outside and away from me, he felt a lot better. It surprised me! I sort of thought maybe it was just a coincidence that he got sick while I was coughing. I guess not!

I send out a weekly digest with updates about our adventures. To receive these updates click here.

    Oh wow! That’s crazy! Hope you all get settled real soon! (By the way, I don’t know if you know this, but I met Jace on the YWW, and he’s critiquing my book. He’s awesome!) πŸ™‚

    Oh, I’m so glad that Brett got that computer. I’ve often thought how that must be so hard working on your phone!! So yay!!! Keep detoxing and keep getting that fresh air in. Your both doing so well and it sounds like the whole program is working so well!! You must have alot of toxins coming out to have Brett get sick. Make sure you drink alot Ana. Drinking will help to release them all. (Of course, you already know this! Here I go with the mothering again! LOL) And as usual, we’re praying for you both!! May the Lord continue to guide and lead!!

      Thanks so much Chris! Yeah, I was surprised it could make him so sick but Sara wasn’t. I guess I’m detoxing some pretty nasty stuff. Thanks for the advice. πŸ’•
