Seems I’m missing all the fun of visiting your blogs and posting on my own. For two weeks I ignored what I was sure was a urinary tract infection. Finally last Thursday it was diagnosed and I started the prescription.
On Friday a series of symptoms began that had me, I felt at one time, down for the count. New lab results came in on Tuesday and there are some complications. Not worrisome. Just a fact.
So I’ve started a new medication. The infection was simply so virulent that it went beyond the urinary tract and affected much of the rest of my body.
If I heard the assurances of the doctor correctly, by the new year I’ll be “fine and dandy, like sugar candy” as my dad used to say. I do hope that soon I’ll be able to get some real sleep and eat more than applesauce.
Days have passed. I missed Christmas and I spent an entire day mired in self-pity. But now I seem to have the whole thing in perspective. It’s just a bump on the road to 2012—a year I’m looking forward to.
So see you in the new year.
