Today... we were hospitaling from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, then went officing, and taught 1 lesson! Whoo! Had problems with rides coming on time, the X-ray machines not working, secretaries that forgot to note the appointments we made, doctors that take forever with the patients, today was a day of a lot of waiting, I think. But we eventually got everything done and found Pres in the office and said hi, and Pres Kline (of the
dropped by and gave us cookies (we got pretzels last week) and said hi as well,
so that made the day pretty alright.
Discovered today that there's a thing called Snapping Hip Syndrome, or Dancer's Hip, and there's three classes of it. The elder we brought in today has the external variety, where the tendon of one of the muscles on the outside of the hip slips back and forth across the greater trochanter of the femur, which makes a popping sound and sensation and causes inflammation. It can get worse, but you can help it get better by not using your legs or walking a lot, which is kinda impossible in the mission. But he has some medication that will help with the pain and disinflammation (is that a word?) [anti-inflammatory], so that's good. I was curious about that because sometimes I feel something like that in my hips, but it's more in front and deeper in my leg, so it's probably of the internal type. But it's nothing super serious, and it doesn't hurt. Just thought that was kinda neat to learn about.

In other news from
a fly flew into one of our fans this morning and died. We were studying and I
heard a little "zxllerykoop" as the fan blades smacked something
tiny, and Hna Robles asked what it was, and I looked down on the floor and
there was a dead fly. So that was the exciting event of this morning.
Also, Hna Robles likes the English word "potatoes", but has trouble saying "girl". I actually forgot how to spell that properly, so we had to look it up in my dictionary. English is weird.
