What an eventful week. I'd started having a fever Thurs, then Fri. It seemed higher than normal for me. I had pain in my kidney. (My husband always laughs at this. He thinks it's funny that I know what ORGAN is hurting. I guess it's like saying, oohh, my pancreas). For real though, it's always that right kidney. I don't know if I put pressure on it or what, but I'm going to have to change my lifestyle a bit. I've decided, I will drink 5 oz of water an hour. I hate water. No, I loathe water. I'll come back to that...
So, the diagnosis was that I have a kidney infection. It freaked me out; it still freaks me out. The Dr. was very serious that I don't want another one of these. I'm on these huge antibiotics that make my throat sore. And, I can't be out in the SUN :( What timing...July. Hubby's b-day is coming up this week. I want to make it good. He's very special. He's quite a guy to deal with my sickliness...again. During church today, I just wept and wept during worship. It's just what I needed. I just have to quiet myself to hear Him, too.
So about the water, I have to drink "plenty of water" with this med. Isn't that specific? I could go the whole day and not drink a thing, and now I have to drink loads of this stuff. Help me Lord, I'm going to have to do it. It's a lifestyle change for sure. I've pretty much stopped eating meat. There's too many weird stuff with meat, and the fact that it stays in the body for so long, that it's easier to avoid it. So that's another change. I also may start taking milk thistle and dandelion (detoxin), but I'm up for suggestions. I just have to make sure I am getting rid of toxins.
On a 2nd? 3rd? note, I don't know what we're doing for school this fall, so I better get my butt in gear now that my butt is not 102.7 degrees.
