The Unexpected

Posted by Tiffany Kimmet on

So I had to cancel my show, Ohio Mart, because something I didn't expect happened! On Monday, Jason and I were busy getting ready for our shows. He has Craftsmen's Classic in Roanoke, VA and I have Ohio Mart in Akron. I've been doing Ohio Mart for years and I love the show. It's a long show so I'm gone for 5 days but I always have a good time and love catching up with everyone. Anyway, Monday afternoon, I have what I think is a mosquito bite. Then after a few minutes, I get another one. Then another. I realized it was hives. I thought that is so weird. I'm not stressed or worried. By nighttime, I was covered from head to toe. I've never had this happen before.

The next morning I get up after a long night of trying not to scratch. I was able to see my doctor and after explaining to him what happened, he ran a few tests and came to the conclusion that I had been exposed to black mold. My body was trying to get rid of it but was overwhelmed which caused the hives. I now know where I was exposed and it makes sense how my body was reacting. 

I thought it would go away by Wednesday when I had to leave to set up for my show. But there was no way I could even leave the house let alone set up my booth. Today is much better and I should be completely better soon. I'm taking a lot of things to help detox from the mold and of course Benadryl. It's funny how life works. I was so excited to go to the show. I put everything I have in our 'business' because I believe it's why God has me here. But it's hard when I can't physically do it. I know God has a plan for all of us and maybe it was more important for me to be home this week.  Thank you for all the prayers! I really appreciate it.

In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
